Affected version(s): All versions | Severity: workaround applicable


ARCHICAD installer goes through all the steps and seems to finish, but nothing is installed.


File Insight of Norton Internet Security, 2010 or later, puts the file generated by the ARCHICAD Installer (LauncherMain.exe) into quarantine.
