Betreff: SuRun and Bitdefender on Win 10 Pro
We have been using SuRun successfully on Win 7 Pro to elevate 1 program for 1 user through a desktop shortcut (.lnk); the program is set to require admin privileges in its source code. When we tested our code on Win 10 Pro, we were able to get the program to work by changing the shortcut target from just
"<program-path>"
to
C:\Windows\SuRun.exe "<program-path>"
as mentioned in another thread in the forum. So far, so good.

When I tried to install SuRun on a Win 10 Pro laptop that had Bitdefender security installed, however, the installation was blocked: Bitdefender claimed SuRun was infected. (Bitdefender identified a specific infection, but I didn't record the name and have not been able to reproduce the error message.)

I tried recovering the SuRun files from quarantine, but that made no difference - SuRun would not execute. I uninstalled SuRun, and attempted to re-install, but that did not work. I don't recall any error messages on the second attempt, but SuRun would not install correctly and/or would not execute.

Apparently, Bitdefender is convinced that SuRun is malware, and somehow permanently blocks it. Unlike (e.g.) Windows Defender, Bitdefender does not seem to provide much control of details for its anti-malware or firewall.

Has anyone else encountered this problem? Is there a fix or some kind of workaround?

I can confirm that BitDefender identifies SuRun as Malware and that I can't find a way to allow Launching SuRun.
(Versions 1.2.1.2 and 1.2.1.3 beta)

I submitted "InstallSuRun.exe" (1.2.1.3b) to them (https://www.bitdefender.de/submit/) as false positive.

Let's see, what they find.
