Visual Studio 2005 maximum number of image files in resource.resx?

Last Modified: 2013-11-26
We have an interesting situation. We have a desktop application that has 251 image files in the resource.resx. When we added more increasing the number of image files to be greater than 251 and create a MSI and attempt to upload the MSI file to our FTP server host we get the message:

Response:      550 Virus Detected and Removed: Heuristics.Broken.Executable

We have done checks of our system and we are clean. But if we remove images to stay below 252 count we can upload the MSI. Our host comany is checking into the issue to see if the AV has an issue. But I was just interested if anyone in EE has experienced a similar issue? And if so what was the solve. I find it difficult to believe that there is a limit to the number of image files a .resx can handle. Or that it would trigger a response to an AV.

BTW we have run AV checks and MalWareBytes checks on the MSI file directly as well as all 251 image files.
