C# Windows application is blocked by the mcCafee AV


We have .Net based C# application in windows. Recently we have seen the mccafee blocks this application on launch . I have attached the screenshot of the detected event .

The installation and extraction of the files goes through successfully. Only the launch is blocked by mccafee.   Could you help us with this  any pointers as to why this is reported as virus?

Thanks for contacting McAfee Community. 

Can you follow KB below and provide us this file as sample so that we can see why this is being detected as malicious?
