    Hi Raymond,
    I can’t purchase the Pro edition. Stupid Paypal says that my credit card can’t be used to buy this.
    If possible, please, provide me another easy way to purchase it (Stripe, Skrill, Bank transfer, Bitcoins).

    And if I delete/lose accidently the executable file, can I recover the same edition from your website ?

    • 2. Raymond  |  September 28, 2015 at 9:17 pm

      Hi Thomas,

      My website only accepts PayPal. Can you try other credit/debit cards.
      If not, we may explore on international bank transfer if required.

      You can email to to discuss further.

    Seems like a good utility, but virustotal gives


    False positive?

    • 4. Alan  |  September 26, 2015 at 11:05 am

      It’s false. I’ve used Raymond’s utility for a year (paid version) with no problems. Daily system scans by paid up-to-date versions of Norton Security, Malwarebytes, and SUPERAntiSpyware.

      • 5. Raymond  |  September 26, 2015 at 2:53 pm

        Hi Alan,

        Great to see you and some other users are still active in this page.
        Thank you for your comment and support on this :)


    • 6. Raymond  |  September 26, 2015 at 2:50 pm

      Hi Jon,

      I have visited VirusTotal and saw the analysis as pasted below.

      Out of 56 Antivirus including reputable ones like (AVG/Kaspersky/McAfee/Malwarebytes/Symantec/TrendMicro), only “Rising” anti-virus detected it as PE:Malware.RDM.35!5.29[F1] . In addition, my program are reviewed by CNET and SoftPedia and I can guarantee my program is free of virus i.e. the result is false positive.


      VirusTotal Analysis

      File name: MD5_and_SHA_Checksum_Utility.exe
      Detection ratio: 1 / 56
      Analysis date: 2015-09-26 06:35:58 UTC ( 0 minutes ago )
      Probably harmless! There are strong indicators suggesting that this file is safe to use.

  • 7. Ola Resell  |  August 27, 2015 at 7:21 pm

    Is the file date included in the checksum? In other words: Will two identical files that are generated at different dates get the same checksum?

    • 8. Raymond  |  August 27, 2015 at 11:33 pm

      Hi Ola,

      Yes, it will get the same checksum as long as the file remain unchanged.
      You can download the free version and do a test if you want.


  • 9. Alan  |  August 18, 2015 at 8:16 am

    I can confirm that the Pro (registered) version of Raymond’s MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility continues to work under Windows 10 x64 Pro on a system that was upgraded (not a clean install) from Windows 8.1 x64 Pro.

    • 10. Raymond  |  August 19, 2015 at 12:50 am

      Hi Alan,

      Thanks for the useful feedback :)


  • 11. dave  |  August 18, 2015 at 12:51 am

    please release a new version with a newer .net framework as windows 10 requires me to install an older version of .net framework for this to run, which i don’t want to have to do.

    • 12. Raymond  |  August 19, 2015 at 12:49 am

      Hi dave,

      I do not have Windows 10 system to test yet.

      As seen from Alan latest comment that he have no issue on his Windows 10 x64 Pro system, may I know which particular version of Windows 10 are you using?


      • 13. Alan  |  August 19, 2015 at 3:35 am

        Hi, Raymond. It’s likely that when I upgraded from a previous Windows 8.1 installation that the old .net framework versions were carried over to the Windows 10 install. That might not be the case if Dave did a clean install of Windows 10. A quick check of my Win 10 registry show the presence of .NET Framework versions 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, and 4.6.

      • 14. HD  |  August 19, 2015 at 2:59 pm

        It’s working fine here under Windows 10 Pro, Upgraded from W8 => W8.1 => W10

      • 15. Raymond  |  August 20, 2015 at 12:01 am

        Hi Alan & HD,

        Based on both of your responses that both Windows 10 is upgraded from Windows 8, I suppose Dave did a clean install of Windows 10 that does not support older .NET Framework.

        I would need to to get a Windows 10 OS to test and confirm.
        Will see what I can do.


      • 16. Marcel  |  September 19, 2015 at 2:39 pm

        Hi Raymond, installed Windows 10 x64 (retail) on a clean SSD. Windows reports there are no updates anymore. Your application requires .NET Framework 3.5.
        Maybe an idea to either include a link prompting the user to download it during the setup?

      • 17. Raymond  |  September 19, 2015 at 8:29 pm

        Hi Marcel,

        I tried download the free version and ran in a Windows 10 Pro x64 clean installed environment. It has a prompt that shows .NET Framework 3.5 is required and there is an option to “Download and install this feature”.

        In addition, I will also try to find a way to ensure that it can support both Windows 10 and older OS without the need to install the 3.5 framework in Windows 10.


    • 18. Marcel  |  September 24, 2015 at 9:04 pm

      Hi Raymond, sorry for the delay. Was away for a couple of days. Yes, after installation and running the tool, it will ask to install .NET Framework 3.5.
      Of course, it is not a big problem to install it then. My suggestion is to have it included into the install procedure. For instance: when the installer is launched, it will immediately tell that Framework is required and offer to install it.
      Again, it is a minor thing, a small improvement only.

      MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility is running fine on Windows 10 x64 Pro.

      • 19. Raymond  |  September 25, 2015 at 12:19 am

        Hi Marcel,

        Thanks for the feedback on the Pro version. Will take note of that.


  • 20. Bill Whaley  |  August 8, 2015 at 10:08 pm

    Great utility! As some others have said, definitely worth registering the Pro version. Thanks!

    • 21. Raymond  |  August 8, 2015 at 10:46 pm

      Hi Bill,

      Thanks for the support :)


  • 22. REJANE LEITE (@SEGSIC)  |  July 4, 2015 at 9:44 am

    This application is very very helpful.

    Certainly, It is help to minimise the virus infection and the software piracy


    • 23. Raymond  |  July 4, 2015 at 1:26 pm

      Hi Rejane,

      Thanks for the support :)


  • 24. Bill P  |  May 25, 2015 at 12:56 am

    Wow! A utility that works! Within a couple of minutes of using it, I decided to donate. The Pro version has more than I need (now), so I am buying that now as a kind of donation.

    • 25. Raymond  |  May 25, 2015 at 10:00 pm

      Hi Bill,

      Thanks for your support :)


  • 26. Daniel  |  May 6, 2015 at 12:51 am

    One more thing!

    If you need translation into Swedish I would be happy to just help* out! I got the time at the moment. And the skills needed for the task!

    So just mail me, should you be interrested in a free* translation from English to Swedish!

    *Of course “help” and “free”. Is by definition “no cost what so ever expected in return for the service provided”, or else it would not be worthy of classify as “help” nor “free”. =)

    P.S (Please do not judge me by my previous post. LOL! Were more than one REALLY sloppy spelling to say the least. Sorry.. It were supposed to be a quick comment รก “Eeh, F#*% it! They will understand what I mean!”. :-P

    In a software translation I am much more dedicated to the grammar and spelling, as I hope you understand! ;-)


    • 27. Raymond  |  May 6, 2015 at 12:57 am

      Hi Daniel,

      Currently there is only one language for this program. If there is a demand for other languages, I will consider to implement multi-languages. Will look for you if I require translation into Swedish.

      Thank you once again.


  • 28. Daniel  |  May 6, 2015 at 12:17 am

    Hi! =)

    Just wanna thank you guys for a simple, yet EXTREMELY usefull and foremost easy to use and understand! People really need to start to take checkups of their downloads seriously. Problem as I see it is that not even some of the largest corps. doesn’t include even an md5 hash verification (much less SHA1 or SHA256..).

    It feels really strange to have to write Bitdefender for example for their .sig/.asc …i mean, come on!

    Just donated the 10 bucks for an awesome work which makes my work a hell of a lot easier (in instructing people how to verify their files with checksums and haschtags of different lvl of security etc.).
    And to the people wondering if you should donate or not;

    You most certantly should.

    Pros (with donated copy):
    *Checks EVERY checksum out there (that are in use..mostly. Wich is CRC32, MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, SHA-384 and SHA-512.
    *Just take a file using drag ‘n drop and you have the above sums in 1-2 sec. (Beat that..;) )
    *EXTREMELY user friendly. A 90-year old can learn this, seriously! (Problem is that corps. need to include their checksums/signatures/haschtags in their download sections!).
    *This is one of those projects were Windows users benefit more then they know themselfs. And THAT is the kind of things that SHOULD be encouraged. And SHOULD be endorsed! Because it will most likely be people like this that through their intenuitity will save the world, one day (if possible..). ie: Programmers and Coders.

    Keep up the GREAT work! =D

    • 29. Raymond  |  May 6, 2015 at 12:37 am

      Hi Daniel,

      Thanks for your great support and wonderful comments!


  • 30. Russell  |  April 12, 2015 at 7:31 pm

    I downloaded this program from here and all the checksums match the ones on this page except the SHA-512.. I get:

    Is it the program or the checksums listed here?

    • 31. Raymond  |  April 12, 2015 at 9:49 pm

      Hi Russell,

      Somehow this page cannot display all the SHA-512 hash correctly as it is been truncated.
      If you double click the SHA-512 hash e.g. below, you will be able to copy all the hash characters correctly.



  • 32. Juha  |  April 9, 2015 at 6:41 pm

    Under which license these are distributed?

    • 33. Raymond  |  April 10, 2015 at 12:19 am

      Hi Juha,

      You may contact for more details on licensing or bulk purchase issues.


  • 34. Emma  |  March 29, 2015 at 7:42 am

    Could you make it possible to drag and drop two folders in order to compare their contents side by side. Basically, the folder one you have now, but in two panes. Drop one folder each side and have it generate the hash of contents as now; and either automatically, or with a button have it highlight the ones that don’t match.

    This is much quicker and you don’t need another one for copy and paste. Can you do that? It would be VERY useful and much quicker!

    • 35. Raymond  |  March 29, 2015 at 9:01 pm

      Hi Emma,

      Thanks for your feedback.
      Will explore on this feature.


      • 36. H.D.  |  April 11, 2015 at 6:44 pm

        Hi Raymond. You wrote: “Will explore on this feature.”
        Have you found some time yet to look at it? I’m just very curious @this feature if it will make it. This could push me to “buy it now” action ;-)

      • 37. Raymond  |  April 12, 2015 at 9:01 pm

        Hi H.D.,

        Due to busy commitments in my full time job, I can’t look into this feature any time soon.
        You may want to consider other software which have the mentioned function.


      • 38. Alan  |  April 11, 2015 at 8:29 pm

        I think that if the side-by-side folder feature is implemented, it should ONLY be enabled in the Pro (paid) version. I purchased the Pro version because even with its existing feature set, it’s a bargain at the current price. I support Raymond’s work on his Checksum Utility in this way.

      • 39. Raymond  |  April 12, 2015 at 9:02 pm

        Hi Alan,

        Thank you very much for your support! :)


  • 40. Abhishek  |  March 5, 2015 at 12:49 pm

    it will be a great help for me if you can send the source code for the SHA-1 and HMAC algorith to me in java or c

    • 41. Raymond  |  March 6, 2015 at 12:30 am

      Hi Abhishek,

      As per my previous comment, my program is not open source.
      You can research the coding online.
