Virus alert during download
« on: May 30, 2024, 06:54:36 pm »
My McAfee AV won't let me download the "latest stable release" for 32-bit, says it contains a virus. Any solution for that? Thanks.

It's a so called false-positive. Would be great if you could report it as such, hopefully someone at McAfee would then clear it.

If you don't want to disable your AV, you're best served by building SFML from source, e.g. by using the SFML CMake template.
