Configuring your antivirus

This page will guide you on resolving false positive errors on RMLLauncher, ensuring a smoother experience without unnecessary interruptions.

Why is my antivirus suspecting RMLLauncher to be a Trojan/Malware?

RMLLauncher is completely safe to use. It's important to note that both RMLLauncher and Core are open-sourced, allowing users to analyze the code.

Our launcher behavior might seem unusual to antivirus programs because it involves downloading files, loading code into the game and connects to servers. We also do not possess a yearly Microsoft code signing license, which can trigger alerts.

Since our software is open-sourced, If it were a virus, someone would have noticed by now. Rest assured, our community has thoroughly examined the software. So, you can trust RMLLauncher without any concerns. 😊

1. Adding exclusions in your antivirus
