Not only Avast, while I was able to install MusicBee 3.3.7491 without any problems, Norton 360 reports all beta versions to be infected with Heur.ADVMLB.

Can you share a screenshot to prove that that is actually happening?

Strange. I personally can't recall anybody reporting Norton to raise false flags on any MB 3.4 version before.

It would probably be good to report this to Symantec/Norton. It's obviously a problem on their side.

Anyway, I just ran the latest MusicBee 3.4 beta .exe through VirusTotal.
Hopefully that proves to anyone stumbling upon threads like this one that MusicBee's trackrecord is still perfect after all these years.

(as long as you download it from MusicBee's website of course)

It usually the bass*.dll files, not musicbee itself, that cause these alerts due to the way the bass developer compresses the files. Its up to the security software vendors to scan his site to whitelist the official dll files. I included a bunch of updated bass plugins in the last 3.4 beta update so it will probably take a bit of time for the alerts to stop

I'm getting a report of a trojan in 3.4.7586 on both the dropbox link and the backup.  As I've had this installed for quite some time so I suspect a windows defender definition update is to blame.

<sigh> Did you read this thread? Did you search the forum?

There is no virus. There is no trojan.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 or 3.6 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.
