I use AVAST antivirus and it blocks creating of Altap self-extracting archives and it also blocks opening of such archives.

Recent occurrence, as in with a definition update?
So it is detecting zip.spl?
Have you reported it to AVAST as a false positive?

Nope, none of the files in the plugins/zip directory. It detects the file created during making of a SFX archive. There's no virus warning with v2.54.
Salamander's error message and Avast's warning.

Note: Altap Salamander 2.54 was build with Visual C++ 6.0 instead of Visual C++ 2008 we are using for Altap Salamander 3.0 - there will be differences. Thank you for reporting to ALWIL.
