Ransomware false positive

Hi! I have just downloaded Flax 1.2, made my first project, and my Antivirus (AVG Free) is warning me that the program wants to modify “ICON.PNG” from my Documents folders.

Is this behavior expected? Should I always run Flax as admin?

Thank you!

False positive. Both Flax Launcher and Flax Editor binaries contain code signing certificate and are safe to use. We need admin rights to install Flax at desire location (eg. Program Files).

Thank you. I´ll set every .exe file to admin, since even launching Flax.exe as Admin triggers certain false positives from my antivirus.
