PolyWorks virus?

What's going on? Why licensed Norton blocks that program from both download links available from

I have downloaded and I set in options to exclude that program from blocking it and I will be using it but I am worried. Does it really contains harmful things? I included an image of Norton report.

That should be a false alarm from Norton and can be ignored. But the version of PW there is very old; you can find newer PW here:

The link was updated long time ago afaik and it's not actually pointing to the old zipped version anymore. It's the v1.5.0.13 which is up-to-date if I am not wrong.
Many AVs flag soldat as virus. It's full of drama and the antivirus software wants to protect you.
