I've uploaded build 26 to the ftp and http (updater) sites.

This includes fixes for all of the known/reproducible problems (except Tk) as well as a final draft of the help file.
This build triggered several AVG warnings and I gave up trying to list temporary installation directories in AVG's exception list. I was able to install this build, though, by opening the installation kit with 7-Zip and extracting the files dated 26-Oct-09 directly into the directory where build 25 was previously installed (and overwriting the files there).

None of the files I actually extracted triggered any AVG warnings.

At this point, I cannot understand why ANYONE would continue to use AVG, which generates more false positives than any other ten antivirus apps combined.

Well, I was just trying to post possibly useful information about how to get around the inconvenience for any other AVG users out there, but since you implied a question, I'll answer it.

I continue to use AVG because since I've started, I've gotten ZERO real viri on my computer, but it has detected many. Perhaps some of the ones it's detected have been false positives. Maybe, but most of them are in junk email, so as far as I'm concerned, AVG is doing a hell of a good job for me.

TCMD components are the only false positives it has detected that I'm sure of. I'm willing to put up with the false positive virus indications because I like both products: Take Command and AVG.

I have tested this in a VM with the latest version of AVG (the free
edition, version 9.0.686), and it indeed triggers on the tcmd.exe file
during the installation. It thinks it has the Win32/Virut virus.

I have used AVG's "upload to AVG labs" feature to report it as a false
positive. No idea if they actually look at those... :)

In any case, AVG is (again?) the only scanner to trigger on this:

Just received this from them... I hope it'll be fixed in their next datafiles update.

I found some false positives in old PC-DOS programs which are archived on my
system. TCSTUB.EXE of V7 is the only JP Software one currently reported. My
reason for keeping it is that it is much faster than McAfee (which I can get
free from comcast) or Symantec (bundled on hardware) and the price is right.

It doesn't say if it was a correct detection or a false positive. Be nice if they would include that - wouldn't it.

Didn't it say "false alarm"?
