A vulnerability was detected error when Installing Samsung Magician

Hello 

 

I have bought a new Samsung SSD 970 EVO disk. I have download the Samsung Magician software and executed the installation.

 

Sadly the installation fails on A vulnerability was detected error. 

 

Can someone help me with that?

 

Thank you

This is the message that I am seeing.

 

The configuration is:

Windows 10 Pro 64-bits (10.0, build 17763)

 

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core Processor (12 CPUs), ~3.6GHz

ASUS Prime B550-Plus

16 GB RAM

AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT

 

Disks:

Samsung SSD 850 Evo 250GB

Samsung SSD 970 EVO 500GB

+ two other normal disks

 

I was using Samsung migration tool to migrate from one SSD to another.

 

Is this enough?

Same issue here with a 5 month old SATA EVO 860 and an SM951 (aka. MZVPV512, 4y/o).

I can't believe it, but this worked for me:

"Can't install #Samsung Magician because ""A vulnerability was detected, progam will close"? Unzip the installer to your Desktop instead of Downloads or D: or ... Strange but works. Hat tip to @uservolgmheSgz at us.community.samsung.com/t5/Monitors-and-Memory/Samsung-Magician-installation-problem/td-p/1187349 Thanks!"

I can't believe it, but this worked for me too.

Put the installer file in desktop.
