This is the Megapatch thread, you're talking about Modact.
What exactly did you install now?
And most of all: Where's the log?

Windows Defender scans part01.exe as a virus.

Surely a false positive?

Do I even need the mega patch though? I have 4.12.2m on Steam, isn't this patch meant to update to that version?

Update Windows Defender and make sure it's not compromised itself.
Last time I've seen Defender to trigger a false positive on this was on Signatures published a couple of years ago.
I have some PCs with Defender (up to date of course) myself and you can check the real Defender results with virustotal.com at any time.

Surely a false positive?
Yep.

On Steam you need this: https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,1531.0.html
...and this: https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,24643.msg256916.html#msg256916

Folders mentioned in second link are already present.

I was hoping to install B.A.T., that's why I ask if the mega patch is necessary for Steam

If your Steam game is really 4.12.2m (can't check right now...) and the folders are present and the Direct2Drive patch is installed, then yes, you're ready and set to proceed with BAT.
Only thing I'd recommend is not to install BAT straight into your Steam IL-2 folder, but instead copy your Steam game installation to a different place and upgrade it to BAT there.
Otherwise you might run into the "Program Files = protected folder" trap on newer Windows OS'es.
