Confirm Detection

I have purchased and downloaded a product from DxO Software.  It's a collections of filters for Photoshop.  Norton Security is detecting it as a Heuristic Virus with the threat name Heur.AdvML.B.  The vendor has indicated this is a false-positive from Norton.  I have tried submitting this twice but keep getting an error that the URL provided does not link to a file (which it does).

I was hoping someone would be able to check to see if the file is detected as clean.  Here is the link...

https : //download - center . dxo . com/nikcollection / v2018/Win/DxO_Nik_Collection(dot)exe

Re: Confirm Detection

FWIW ~ I made submission with info provided.   I'll update if/when I hear back. 

The download requires Trial Confirmation.   So, IDK....may be problem for Norton back-end but, if/when I hear..... I'll update.

The download from DxO required (for me) Trial Confirmation.

Um, did Norton detect on file download or file launch? 
I had presumed file was detected on download.  Based upon location path I'll presume file was detected upon install / launch?   Correct me?

AFAIK ~ Norton back-end review does not install every software and watch what soft does.
