How do I make installed antiviruses detect a program?


I’m trying to make a program that gets detected by almost all antiviruses, but the program shouldn’t do anything to the computer. I am attempting to get a trogan/rat/worm false positive, but if I put rats I made into the system, it doesn’t alert the AV.
