I am having a bit of an issue with some of the people that are testing my game, some of them say that they can't run the game because their antivirus software says that it might contain a virus. How would I go at fixing this problem? Thanks for any help.

they would have to make changes in their antivirus to allow it to run.

Tell them to add the game.exe to their white list. That's the easiest way.
Should be able to do that without much difficulty. It's probably the heuristic scan that is causing issues.
But this is a fault of their antivirus software. The worst mine does it scan the file.
Unless you're talking about the compressed file. That usually gets blocked. Windows does that. but if you know it's safe, then for me it's just a matter of clicking on the more info, then click run anyway.

What do you mean white list? How would they go at doing that?

each antivirus has a list that is called "whitelist" and that contains programs that should run even if their heuristic search found something. It's a list of "false positives".

and where that list is can differ depending on the antivirus software, they have to look for it themselves because no one knows every different antivirus on the market.
