SUMMARY

Presagis provides a MD5 hash (or checksum) for product downloads. This article shows how to verify the checksum, as to determine whether a file was downloaded successfully, or was corrupted.



DETAILS

Before you start, you will need to download a Checksum Verifier such as WinMD5Free (with User Interfacel), or Microsoft FCIV (command line tool).

Using WinMD5 Free

  1. Start WinMD5.exe
