[EpiData-list] New Epidata release due to virus problems

For all Epidata users.
Unfortunately we made an error in the Manager version released a few days back. The error was that the yellow sign "do not use on production data only for testing" was shown (but it was not a test version) . We have therefore replaced the public release versions with a correct one today.

If you wish to use the "user specified installation" in Windows and use a new folder location please notice, that you must first uninstall a previous version, otherwise the new version will be placed in the same folder as previously. Use the uninstall.exe in the previous folder to uninstall. 

A user have informed us that his anti-virus software declares all as virus free, which is correct. Unfortunately some systems claim a false positive warning. We are concerned about this and continue to seek solutions. Please comment on this issue, in particular if you have suggestions or possibility to assist. 

Best wishes
