I have compiled a linux based code to windows using Cygwin, and packaged it as a part of an Adobe AIR exe. The AIR application gets installed and everything is fine, until the time the product internally executes the C++ based binaries compiled. When that happens, the various antiviruses promptly give the warning that the C++ binary is not trusted and is blocked. Any comments on how to prevent this would be really helpful.

Bit off-topic, but are you running multiple anti-viruses? That's typically regarded as a bad thing... – Kruug Feb 12 '13 at 18:28
What exactly is getting flagged? What does "not trusted" mean for that particular AV? You'd better check that, and take it up with the AV vendor... – vonbrand Feb 13 '13 at 3:16

On most anti-virus systems I have used (YMMV), you can exempt either files or directories from anti-virus software actions.
