Hi Govert, 
First of all let me congratulate you for your extraordinary software.
I have developed a nice excel add-in with it.  Lately I have been struggling with antivirus false positives. I managed to recompile Exeldna.XLL and Exceldna64.xll without triggering antivirus (disabling all optimization in the compilation options).
I have a .Net dll ( also with an add-in. Separately they have no issues. When I run the pack program, the 32 bit version packed xll triggers Symantec norton 365 antivirus while the 64 version does not (although it packs the same dll in both).
Do you have any tip on how to pack without triggering the false positive given that separated they have no issue?
Thanks, José
