h3. Diagnostic

On some Windows, with some antivirus, a virus is detected in the .exe:
* Windows 8.1 Professional, Microsoft antivirus, TXM_0.8.0_Win64_installer.exe: "Program:Win32/Vigram.A (Microsoft)":https://www.trendmicro.com/vinfo/sg/threat-encyclopedia/malware/pua.win32.spigot.ga detected, .exe deleted by antivirus
* Windows 8.1 Professional, Avast antivirus, TXM_0.8.0_Win64_installer.exe: no virus detected
* SJ (TXM_0.7.9_Win64_installer.exe, Windows 7 pro and Windows 10 pro) : no virus detected with Windows Defender, Kasperky, Spybot, Malwarebytes with last definitions for all tools

The 32-bit setup never triggers a virus detection.

h3. Solution 1

Possible workaround.

* download setup
* run antivirus
* copy on USB stick
* install from USB stick

MD note: this solution might not work as well (observed one time on Windows 10 with Windows Defender)

h3. Solution 2

* update antivirus definition
* check if browser or system is not infected
