Need to research: Nirlauncher v1.23.42 to 1.23.43 upgrade through Chocolatey fails with “Operation did not complete successfully because the file contains a virus or potentially unwanted software.”

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/04/23

I had a curious error despite the build not having any failures on VirusTotal:

You have nirlauncher v1.23.42 installed. Version 1.23.43 is available based on your source(s).
nirlauncher not upgraded. An error occurred during installation:
 Operation did not complete successfully because the file contains a virus or potentially unwanted software.

nirlauncher package files upgrade completed. Performing other installation steps.
The upgrade of nirlauncher was NOT successful.
nirlauncher not upgraded. An error occurred during installation:
 Operation did not complete successfully because the file contains a virus or potentially unwanted software.

When upgrading, this briefly is visible in the Windows Security view “Virus & thread protection”:

So I need to figure out a few things before I can upgrade Nirsoft:

  1. Where choco upgrade downloads temporary files
  2. Where these temporary files store their intermediate and final files during installation
  3. How to temporarily exclude the locations of 1. and 2 in Microsoft Defender.

Unifi Cloud Key: “We have detected that your SD card is missing. Please insert it and reboot your Cloud Key or disable automatic backup.”

Got this a while ago with 5.10.17:

“Missing SD card”

“We have detected that your SD card is missing. Please insert it and reboot your Cloud Key or disable automatic backup.”

This might be a hardware issue with [Archive.is] Ubiquiti UniFi Cloud Key, UC-CK: AmazonSmile: Computer & Zubehör

Reading the 1-star reviews, SD-card problems seem paramount: [Archive.is] Amazon.de:Kundenrezensionen: Ubiquiti UniFi Cloud Key, UC-CK.

For me, most of the times this solved the problem:

  1. Power down the Cloud Key
  2. Remove the SD card
  3. Insert the SD card
  4. Power up the Cloud Key
