After exporting the project to the Windows 32-bit platform, my Avira antivirus program starts swearing at the exported file.

However, he does not swear if I export the project to the Windows 64-bit platform.

Also, Linux cannot run a 32-bit exe file through Wine, although it can do this with a 64-bit exe.

I would like the developers to fix the following:
Corrected what Avira swears at.
Running 32-bit exe on Linux via Wine.

Where do I go?

I’d certainly assume the virus complaint is a false positive. To be sure, you should be able to submit the offending file to the AV vendor for verification. Based on their analysis, they’ll likely update the AV signatures to avoid the issue in the future.

Bottom line, I doubt it’s a real issue, but have the AV vendor verify it to be sure.

I don’t know anything about the 32-bit Wine issue…
