False adware alert

Greetings from the Czech republic, I encountered a very unpleasant behaviour as for creating InstallShield packages. During the building the package, my Kaspersky AV software reports that SETUP.EXE from redist folder  contains malicious software: not-a-virus:HEUR:AdWare.Win32.BlazeMedia.gen In fact, there is no virus or any other deleterious code in the mentioned file. It may be some suspicious sequence in this EXE file, could you inspect and resolve this issue please?

I emphasize that I've been using this version of InstallShield for more than half a year and everything was always correct - till a couple days ago when the issue appeared out of the blue.

If I pause the AV protection, everything works properly and the installation package is created. However, after resuming the protection, created installer package is labeled in the way described above and KSOS is trying to disinfect it - but with no success. In addition, running this file is denied with a message as for insufficient access rights to file and/or the file is used by another process.

Thank you. Karel
