Cannot install PDF files (with anti-virus active)

Unread postby Greg Smith » 22 Apr 2022, 16:17

We have had a couple of reports of the Spike2 and Signal installers being unable to copy PDF files with Avast or AVG anti-virus active. This seems to be due to the anti-virus software deciding that PDF files are dangerous (perhaps because they can contain links to malicious sites or can trigger other actions). If you have this problem you can either ignore it (and live without the PDF files) or you can temporarily disable the anti-virus software while you run the installer.
