How to configure your antivirus
This page will explain you how to get rid of multiple error on RMLLauncher you can have because of false positives
RMLLauncher is injecting code (mods) in a running process (the game), and this is a very suspicious action. As a mod launcher we need to do this, but it's not a "normal behavior" for a software. Then your antivirus is flagging it as a Trojan or a malware that try to hide himself in others applications. If you are worried and not sure if you want to download it because of that, you can go on the RaftModding discord server or on the official raft server to ask on the modding area what others user thinks of RML.
When you are on the Windows Security Center open the Security tab.
If you are on an old windows 10 version, you will have the name of your antivirus here (it's the "virus protection" row).
Exemple for Windows Defender antivirus
Else, if you are on the newer windows 10 version, you will have "View in Windows Security" in the "virus protection" row, click on it and on this new window you should have your antivirus name.
Exemple for Avast antivirus
