    I'm using the public version and have been getting the problem. I did disable kaspersky download GS and install but as soon as I turned kaspersky back on it locked down and deleted the files
  • duds's avatar
    I had the same problem so I temporarily disables smart-firewall and auto-protect.

    The updated Genie Scout file will then load OK. Once finished, I turned smart-firewall and auto-protect back on.

    To be honest, every update to Genie Scout I usually get a warning from Norton but can usually click to run the file anyway. This one keeps deleting though so no other way for me without turning off the smart-firewall and auto-protect for a few minutes.

    I agree with Nordic_DK. The public version works a treat but the G version is deleted by Kaspersky as it says its a virus.
  • morrisbey88's avatar
    why is it the ratings page (regarding position) has winger, normally associated with AMR/L, but doesn't have wide midfielder, normally associated with MR/L? Is there any way to add this?
  • Red till im dead's avatar
    Is the in-game scout not working for anyone, or just some of us not seeing it?
  • Marnix Kolder's avatar
    When I try to unzip my security software (Norton) decides that the exe file is a risk and deletes it...

    First time I've had this. Any thoughts anyone?
  • alie's avatar
    In-game scout (box) - not working :(
  • beppeb's avatar
    I use the Scout from a long time and it's great.
    Just have two little suggestions for Eugene that shouldnt take much programming time to implement:

    Be able to see wages per year, like i use to do, and not only per week;we can use the most exotic currencies, included some that dont exist anymore being supplanted by Euro, but we cannot see what will cost per year to sign a player, that's what you need to know when you sign a player and you are on a tight budget.

    In the popup window use a darker colour than the light grey over white that's used now

    Still having no luck seeing the in-game scout boxes.

    Don't know if they are being blocked by the ones the game shows or if they are just not showing up.

    ps. I have made sure the box is ticked in options, so that isn't the issue.
  • Nordic_DK's avatar
    I also have the g-edition.

    I just installed public edition (b812), no problems here.
    Looks like the problem concerns g-edition update only.
  • gazz1209's avatar
    Mine is on the g edition
  • Stam's avatar
    The setup files are perfectly safe and clean. We didn't change anything compared to previous version (besides adding support for 18.2), so most likely Kaspersky had an update that doesn't like GS18; no idea why though. Do you get this warning on the g edition only or on the public one as well?
  • gazz1209's avatar
    Same as Nordic_DK! Still getting the Malware detected by Kaspersky warning
  • Nordic_DK's avatar
    new FMScout update today, beta 13.
    Still same "Cannot execute" issue followed by same "Trojan.win32.Hesv.jtk" warning from Kaspersky?!?

    Do any of you experience the same thing? I've never had issues prior to beta12 (and now 13).
  • Insp1rat0R's avatar
    I have ordered and installed the genius scout g and I do not know how to make this
    feature available?
  • chaudar's avatar
    Hello: problem with installation: when i click on the file to install: unable to execute file in the temporary directory setup aborted
  • shelbyj14's avatar
    I also have the same issue with Kaspersky, been using fm scout for years and never had issues until this update
  • gazz1209's avatar
    Also using Kaspersky and getting the Malware warning.
  • Red till im dead's avatar
    In-game scout isn't working since 18.2, any chance of this being fixed soon?
  • guernica's avatar
    Really thank you Eugene!! Keep up the good work! :)
  • Erosdaiou's avatar
    it s normal guys everytimes fm update genie scout has to also have an update to work fine with it so until the release of the 18.2 who might happens in the evening genie scout is sort of useless for now, remember to download the new version here when it will be release ;) my bad it s already out simply download the new version who is on the page and delete the older one ;)
  • hopktc's avatar
    Same problem with Nordic_DK!
  • Nordic_DK's avatar
    Sorry, I explained this wrong.
    I have the base version, working fine (besides it doesn't work with new version of FM18 ;) ).
    The mentioned error is when updating Genie Scout to 18.2.
  • Nordic_DK's avatar

    I har a registered version of Genie SCout.
    I downloaded both trough link in mail and through update in Genie Scout and both every time I try installing update, Kaspersky reports UDS: trojan.win32.hes.jtk detected.
    I haven't experienced this with earlier versions ?!?
  • TheJofSpades's avatar
    18.2 is out, thanks Stam :)
