As a result of some recent misinformation and confusion with regards to the cmdhost file installed by the developers A320-X software, Flight Sim Labs has released an official statement. The statement, posted via the developers Facebook page attempts to clarify the issue, please see below.
Over the past few hours we have become aware of rumours circulating on social media about the cmdhost file installed by the A320-X and wanted to clear up any confusion or misunderstanding.
cmdhost is part of our eSellerate infrastructure – which communicates between the eSellerate server and our product activation interface. It was designed to reduce the number of product activation issues people were having after the FSX release – which have since been resolved.
This is not a new discovery or something we have ever sought to hide away. Indeed, we directly addressed the nature of this file way back in February: https://forums.flightsimlabs.com/index.php….
The file has been passed to all the major antivirus houses in order for them to verify that it is legitimate, and is also reported clean by Virus Total. If you have any concerns, we urge you to submit it to your preferred antivirus company for testing.
Hopefully this resolves the matter for those concerned.
