BlueMaxima's Flashpoint Project Starter Application False Positive


Recommended Posts


I author the main starter executable for the internet game preservation project "BlueMaxima's Flashpoint".

It is an extremely simple Windows bootstrapper that only does the following (other than internal string manipulation):

  1. Determines the current working directory of itself (GetCurrentDirectoryW)
  2. Starts the user-facing frontend/launcher application that resides in a subfolder beside it (CreateProcessW)

As my presence here implies, Malwarebytes detects it as Malware and I would appreciate it if you could inspect it for whitelisting, or otherwise alter definitions to prevent this false positive.

Attached is the scan log and executable in question.

The source for the application is available here: 



The particular revision this executable was generated from is: 




Start Flashpoint.zip fpreport.txt
