Windows App Cert Kit Fail

Sep 16, 2012 at 10:15 PM
Hi Guys,
I am using the DotNetZip on a Windows 8 Desktop App, but when I run the Windows App Cert Kit, it shows the following warning:
Windows security features test

Binary analyzer
  • Warning: The binary analyzer test detected the following errors:
    • File C:\Program Files (x86)\...\Ionic.Zip.dll has failed the APTCACheck check.
  • Impact if not fixed: If the app doesn’t use the available Windows protections, it can increase the vulnerability of customer's computer to malware.
  • How to fix: Apply the SAFESEH, DYNAMICBASE, and NXCOMPAT options when you link the app. See link below for more information:
    Fixing Binary Analyzer Errors

Does anyone know how to fix it?

I am running Windows 8 Pro and Visual Studio 2012 Pro. The installation package is build using Flexera InstallShield 2012 Spring Professional.
