Is the file safe if detected by only one engine on virustotal?

Im trying to install something but before I do I always check if its safe on [virustotal.com](https://virustotal.com/) and it got detected by 1 engine. Is it safe? Why is only 1 engine detecting it? Here’s the link to the results [https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/c0b484c13281eae13c164d42bb264b85f6a8be0ffbd68a959eb5670acf9ef1f0/detection](https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/c0b484c13281eae13c164d42bb264b85f6a8be0ffbd68a959eb5670acf9ef1f0/detection)

If you dont know how to interpret results on virustotal, you probably shouldnt use it.

In this case, its an false positive, one detection by an obscure AV.
