I'm trying to download and install Windows client. In both Chrome and Edge I'm getting: "Couldn't download - Virus detected". I've attached screenshot

Hi kosinsky,

First, please ensure you are downloading Viscosity from our website and not a third party -

This will most likely be a false-positive from your AV software which most likely has an extension for chromium browsers. You will need to contact your AV software manufacturer for how to add a whitelist exception.

The Viscosity Installer is heavily compressed, so most likely the AV software can't figure out how to extract and scan it's contents so is flagging it as dangerous as a fallback.
