Standalone application reported as dangerous by the antivirus.

Hi, I'm trying to develop a standalone application with the Application Compiler. I have a problem during the installation phase of the application, as some antivirus report the possibility that the file is dangerous to the PC. How can I do to avoid this situation?
Thanks so much

Posting this as an answer.
When you compile the app, you probably put your name into publisher field. Defender checked if that name is on their list of safe publishers, which obviously it can't be. I don't know about solution, you probably can't do anything but click More information on the SmartScreen window, and then you'll see the button to run the app.
