Anti Virus

Cloudhouse Containers are broadly compatible with Anti Virus software, although some versions of vendor software may flag the application as suspicious.  During UAT, Cloudhouse recommend testing the Container with the same version of anti-virus software that is used in the production environment and adding Cloudhouse to white list if it is flagged as a virus.


Remove the following files Run1.exe, Run2,exe from the Container prior to deployment, these files are only required if you need to create UWP/MISX packages of the Container. Anti virus and malware scanners may flag these as malware because they are unsigned, and they are designed to run other executables.
