I suspect it's a false positive based on my own experience. You can probably
get the same answer from their forums.

I've run into the same issues on a different (VB) program, one I wrote
myself kept being tagged as a virus by Avira. I discovered finally that the
reason was Avira at that time detected a setup.exe file in an unexpected
location but it never said so. It just dug up a name and said I was infected
by xxxx. After some hair pulling and digging I discovered it was triggering
on a setup.exe in the VB folder.
First I deleted the file and the problem went away. Put the file back,
problem came back. Moved the file to Program Files and the problem stayed
Avira was declaring a virus based simply on PATH! Then from reading the
groups there I decided Avira was using their install base to do BETA testing
with but not saying so ... I got a support guy to admit it in so many words.
That was the last time I used Avira!
