Bug report

Today, I tried to install inkdrop on my new windows PC.
( I usually use it on my macos. :slight_smile: )
I encounterd the error below.

The downloaded setup.exe includes “spursint.F!cl” and windows security judges it trojan.

So, I can’t finish to download your installer… :frowning:

Does anybody have sush a problem?

Reproduce

  1. login to inkdrop on website.
  2. On a download page, selecet windows os, installer version.
  3. When it has downloaded, windows security isolate the setup.exe, so I cannot touch the file.
