NOD32 asked me to send the file to the developers, so i did. We have to wait to see what they do with it.
Software: should we be aware because it's soft ? I like to think not !

Could be, I actually did not installed this one. Went form .0027 to 0.0030 ;)

From what I've read now it coud be a "false positive" by NOD32 due to its advanced heuristics methods. Now sure why though, but hopefully they'll fix it soon.
Yes, "false positive", I saw that too. Send them the file so they can fix it. Or wait till it disappears by itself. It must be a temporary coincidence.

Same here with version v4.20.0031. Never seen it before with Tracker install files. Also using NOD32.

Never happend before, and I'm not sure what to think of it. Happend also with v4.20.0031

Could TV3 now include something that would mislead NOD32 to think it's a virus?
:?: I did not add anything like that, especially I did not enter a virus :wink: Weird, what can I do about that?? Hmmm

EDIT: you are sure it was not in v4.20.0028 ?

Download the latest TrackerV3 BETA version (v4.20.0031, 04-nov-2005).

Code: Select all

v4.20.0031 - 04.11.05 18:04
    + Experiments with list view display colors: several file types will 
      show some hard-set colors for a while. Don't be alarmed ;)
    + Menu View, Show Columns: added commands
        "Define Current Column Widths and Sequence As User Default"
        "Restore Column Widths and Sequence From User Default".
      Each list mode (Browse, Find, Drives) now has an independent user 
      default for column widths and sequence, which is remembered 
      between sessions. Note that column visibility and sort order are 
      not concerned here.

Download the latest TrackerV3 BETA version (v4.20.0030, 04-nov-2005).

Code: Select all

v4.20.0030 - 04.11.05 10:11
    + Further improvement of WAV preview. Here's a revised version of 
      the v4.20.0028 history:
      Added 24-bit and 32-bit WAV preview, for the traditional PCM 
      format as well as for the new WE (WaveformatExtensible).
      This makes TrackerV3 a standout tool for computer musicians using 
      higher quality 24-bit/32-bit samples and feeling the need to 
      regularly preview and organize them.
      To make this work you need to install a codec called "ffdshow Audio 
      Decoder", downloadable as "ffdshow Audio Decoder alpha" from 
      http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffdshow. After installation open 
      "Audio filter configuration" and set Codecs/Uncompressed to "all 
      supported", and you're done. If you're happy with it, give the 
      author a little donation to make him happy too.
    * Widened info frame for image, audio, and font by 32 pixels.
    * The following video formats are from now on previewed using 
      DirectShow/quartz.dll: .avi, .mov, .qt, .mpg, .mpeg, .mpa, .mpe, 
      .m1v, .mp2, .mpv, .mpv2.
      Reason: less flicker on changing previewed files.
    - Configuration/Previewed Formats: removed checkbox "Play AVIs as 
      MPEGs" because it's obsolete now.
    * When trying to change the location of a locked tab, a new tab was 
      opened automatically. Now, this happens only if a tab with that 
      location does not exist already, in which case this old tab will 
      be automatically selected. The search for an existing tab is done 
      from left to right.

    + Menu Tools: added command Recycle Bin Stats. It's just a little 
      message box that tells you relatively quick the total number and 
      size of items currently in the recycle bin. Just in case you 
      wanted to know...
    ! Menu View, Refresh Tree: did not recognize the appearance of new 
      childs of generation three (grandchilds of drives) and higher. 
      Fixed.    
    ! Info Panel, Report, Current Folder: fixed some minor alignment 
      issues.
Many thanks ! I do appreciate all these little tweaks that you add for us.

I hope that some of them also make the product yet more appealing for others in the future.

Download the latest TrackerV3 BETA version (v4.20.0025, 28-oct-2005).

Code: Select all

v4.20.0025 - 28.10.05 18:05
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main changes since last release:
  +++ Tabbed browsing: added the ability to "lock tabs" (find the new 
      command/state in the tabs' context menu). A locked tab will never 
      leave its current location but instead open a new tab 
      automatically.
      Of course, you can as well lock the search results tab.
  +++ Added preview of the following MS Office formats:
      DOC, DOT, RTF, PPT, XLS, CSV.
    + Now you can "Open in New Tab" by simply holding Shift when 
      clicking a tree node.
    + You can as well "Open in New Background Tab" by simply holding 
      Ctrl and Shift when clicking a tree node.
    - Various bug fixes. 
v4.20.0025 - 28.10.05 18:05
    * Menu View, Refresh Folder is now "Refresh Tree" (shortcut F4). You 
      guessed it: now the whole visible tree will be updated, not just the 
      current folder and its subfolders.

    ! In a fresh installation, the folder "[app-path]\FindTemplates\" 
      was not created, with the effect that finding tabs would not 
      store/retrieve their settings. Fixed.
    ! Menu View, Date Format, No Time: it did not work anymore, at least 
      not under 2K/XP. Fixed.
