On Windows 10, running portable viewer v22.214.171.124 not elevated, free license, running remote install.

Upd ate host
Browse to the host126.96.36.199.msi file on the local computer.
(instructions don't explicitly say the path there is a local path; could be a remote path? I tried both--same result.)
In the Action log window I get:
***** Start of log ***** Date: 2/5/2022 12:36:01 AM Action: install/upgrade. Checking files of the Host. Host files not found!
I have checked the path to the local host188.8.131.52.msi file, and checked its hash against the one on the website download page. Everything checks out. I can execute that .msi file on the local computer. I even copied it and tried to specify the copied file. Same result.
The remote machine is Windows Server 2019 running installed host v184.108.40.206.
I have BitDefender antivirus that is complaining about these files. But I have se t these files as Exclusions and I have BitDefender's real-time protection turned off during this entire operation.
PUA stands for potentially unwanted application. So there's no signature, nor application process that you can appeal. It's a unilateral decision, judgement call, by BitDefender.
"Potentially" is a misnomer. Even the Windows 10 installer is, technically, "potentially" unwanted. I know plenty of people who would say, "I don't want that crap anywhere near my system."
The REAL definition is "almost certainly unwanted" as in, <1% of people ever use it, and 99% of people have it installed unintentionally, and 99% of people when they discover it and have the opportunity, uninstall it.
Also of note: when I restored the file from quarantine, somehow it now has security permissions that I can not access it. I've spend 2 hours on the web, but it's clearly something deeply behind the scenes that none of these posts even address. It looks like it's owned by me and and I have full permissions, but when I try to run it, I get still access denied. It looks like I can change permissions, but when I try, everything's grayed out.
