Just tried to run a build on Windows 10 with 8u112 and got this:

Exception: Cannot run program
CreateProcess error=225, Operation did not complete successfully because
the file contains a virus or potentially unwanted software

Windows Defender quarantined the file. It listed it and the launcher .exe
for my application as threats:

I had to explicitly go into Windows Defender and pick "Allow Item" to get
the build to succeed.

After that subsequent scans of the created launcher .exe with Windows
Defender came back clean.

Are you aware of this issue?  I didn't see anything in Jira but I can't
recall if I ever needed to bypass this check before.
