I was casually working on my game, and after finishing a feature, I tried to test the game,
but when i pressed the test button I got an error saying "Failed to create process".
After looking around in the files, I found that the game.exe was deleted from the game files,
any ways to restore it? Thanks in advance!

Edit: By the way, I didn't delete it myself, the game deleted it for some reason. It's not in my recycle bin. (And I haven't cleared my recycle bin for weeks)

it was neither you nor the editor that deleted it - your antivirus quaranteened it (which is why it's not in the recycle bin but most probably in the quarantine folder).
please check your AV and have it restore it after making sure that it is a false positive (and not a true infection).

Your anti-virus would also be my guess.

In any case, the .exe file is not specific to your game. You can grab any other Ace games' .exe file (as long as it hadn't been modified, like with a custom icon and such).

"OH! LOOK! An exe without digital signature! Let's quarantine it without giving any warning to the user".

Seems like the chrome attitude:
"HEY! This exe has no digital signature, thus I will tell the user that it is malicious."

I understand that this kind of actions keep dummies safe from huge threats.
But on the other hand, intermediate users get rekt.

Indeed.

Nowadays, the best anti-virus is common sense. Don't click on suspicious ads and don't open and reply to Nigerian Prince who wants to send you a million dollar.

Also:
Rule #1: Pretty women who flirt you on the internet, are men.
Common sense: Pretty women don't need to flirt on the internet. Why would they do that?

Rule #2: Messages that use generalization to avoid calling you by your name, are pretty much not from your bank.
Common sense, is not so common though....

Rule #3: Cracked game versions are usually trojan horses, or even contain 0 day exploits.
Common sense: Hackers have huge botnets. Thousands of PCs at their disposal. How? That's one of their ways.

A good Anti-Virus is important because there are too many exploits that would hijack your computer otherwise.
However it is a bad idea to allow yourself to believe that you can automatically be protected from everything, you should always keep in mind that the computer has its own limitations and needs a supervisor/user from time to time.

All malware targets exactly those users who think that they can ignore their computer maintainance - if you use your computer for more than emails you should at least take the time to familiarise yourself with its basic operations and how to detect problems.
Or you'll quickly become one of the people who think they'll have to purchase a new computer whenever something goes wrong, because they can't find out what went wrong. But that way you only satisfy the computer industry by loosing your money to them...

Is it a recurring issue? If not (only a one time thing), you could just recover it (pretty easy) and let it go. If it happened more than once, then the question needs further examination.
