    I have used this tool for over 5 years and find it to be the best of the hash tools.. Today, it stopped working. Our IT Dept checked and informed me that they implemented new FIPS compliance with a variety of software and It seems the checksum utility program isn’t compatible.

    Is there, or will there be, a FIPS compatible version ?

    Hi Raymond, How do I start the app with all of the checkboxes UNCHECKED. My usual usecase is that I want to validate a download. Just downloaded the Debian 9.8.0 DVD image. It just took forever to run the check. All I needed was to verify an SHA1 checksum.

      Hi unixwolf,

      I just did a quick check between the Free and Pro version.
      Pro version has the ability to save the settings whereas the Free version couldn’t.

      Please consider buying the Pro version if you are interested to use this feature and other extra functions.

    Hi Raymond,
    I have purchased the pro version and I was wondering if I can use it from the command prompt. For example I wanted to add it to a batch file that will check a file calculated SHA-1 against a known result and if correct, allow the installation of that file.
    Is there a command prompt option?

      Hi Uriel,

      Thanks for the support and feedback.
      This program version does not have any command prompt option.

        Thanks for the answer. A bit disappointing as otherwise it is a great application. You might consider adding this ability, goes a long way towards automation control systems.

          Hi Uriel,

          Sure. Thanks for the feedback.

    Thanks for the well-designed and handy utility!

    1) You’re up to version 2.1, right?
    2) How is the “Pro” version offered? Is it something you upgrade the free version with using a code, or a separate program to buy somewhere?

      Hi John,

      Thanks for the support.

      Due to the busy work commitment, I am not able to launch 2.1 any time soon.

      For the Pro version, it is a separate program. You can refer this link to purchase

        I bought it! But this site and do provide version 2.1. (I was confused by your comment that it’s “not launched”.)

        Hi John,

        Sorry for the confusion. The “Pro” version you downloaded should be 2.1 as I forgotten I did some minor update some time ago.

        As this is an old post on 2.0, you may want to follow the updated page @

    Thanks for a superb little utility. Absolutely first class. Not sure if I really need the pro facilities but after using the freebee for a bit I bought it anyway. Least I could do.

      Hi Wikispooks,

      Thanks for the support 🙂

    Thank you for an awesome utility!

    I downloaded a software patch from a third party mirror site and needed to verify if the file was legit. The MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility came in real handy.

    Thanks again.
