I'm using Avira Free Antivirus and I'm not the administrator.

Depending on the permissions set for your account, you may need to have admin privileges to run the program. Is there any way you can get admin privileges? False positives will have to be added to the trusted list of your detection software. Cubik does not contain any kind of malicious or harmful code.

But why does it need Administrator permissions?

Also how do I add false-positives?

First you need to have access to your detection software (anti-virus). Once you have access, you'll need to add the Cubik.exe file to the trusted list.

Administrative access is necessary for programs that modify the file system, such as installing required components or saving data to your hard drive. It all depends on the permissions you're allowed on your computer.

I typed in the password at the SmartScreen popup and now it works.


Thanks for your help :D

Probably because Cubik creates a file at first launch called "BDcraft Cubik.txt" where the EXE is located. This file saves the settings of Cubik (like the background colors and other settings).

Note: Cubik doesn't need Administrator privileges in Windows7. The rules are probably more strict in Windows8.

Windows 8 wants an administrator to run the program because it lacks a digital signature. As long as an admin tells Windows that the program is OK, it should run fine later on.

Next version will be self-signed but I don't know if that will solve any issue at all... I can't afford a certificate like Verisign (which cost 499$ per year!)...

You just need to trust BDcraft that Cubik is not and do not contain any Malware/Virus or anything bad for your computer.

If you still don't trust BDcraft, you can still execute Cubik in a Sandbox like "Sandboxie" which is easy to use and works perfectly with Cubik. ;)
