Convertset has malware?! (Spoiler: No.)

Lately, I have noticed that some antivirus software -including Windows Defender- picks up Convertset as malware. This is definitely a false positive that is caused because of my usage of a “.bat to .exe converter” program because yes, Convertset uses batch files. However, GameMaker: Studio, the engine I used to create the GUI doesn’t work properly with batch files, but it works with executables. However, the conversion technique clearly creates some problems with AV software.

So, I downloaded another bat to exe converter which claims it has less problems with AV software. I tried it and it really didn’t interfere with anything I had (including Windows Defender). This simple change is included in the newest 1.0.2 update.

I am sorry for being such a failure as a programmer.
