Nikon updates nearly all of its Windows software after anti-virus confusion

A number of Nikon Windows programs have been mistakenly identified as viruses by certain anti-virus programs. While there was no actual threat to the security of the computers the programs were installed on, Nikon has released an update for all of its software products to ensure the programs don’t get incorrectly flagged by anti-virus software going forward.

In the changelog of each of the updates, Nikon says it’s ’Fixed an issue that caused certain anti-virus software to mistakenly identify the “IFGLS001.exe” and “ifasglog.exe” files in the installation destination folder as viruses during or after installation.’

You can download the updates using the following product support pages:

  • Nikon Capture NX-D (Version 1.6.0a)
  • Nikon Camera Control Pro 2 (Version 2.29.1a)
  • Nikon Message Center 2 (Version 2.4.1)
  • Nikon Picture Control Utility 2 (Version 2.4.3a)
  • Nikon ViewNX-i & Capture NX-D (Version 1.19.040)
  • Nikon ViewNX-i (Version 1.4.0a)
  • Nikon Wireless Transmitter Utility (Version 1.9.0a)

Aside from the above change, it doesn’t appear as though anything is different in the programs.
