    I remain unclear about whether this utility is suitable for use on Windows 10 (Updated OCT 2017)?

    Hi Raymond,
    Our photo archiver would like to use your MD5&SHA Checksum Utility to verify the integrity of digital image files. The security officer would like to know more before he allows it. Will you collect any data from us, and if so what and how is it stored? Do you have an EULA? What app or programming language did you use to create the utility?
    Thank you.

      Hi Eliz,

      We will not collect any data from user.
      We do not have any EULA.
      It is developed in .NET.

    […] Now, to run checksum, we’ll use a freeware utility called MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility. […]

    Could you please fix the issue where the checksum isn’t copied to the clipboard until AFTER you select OK on the dialogue box that states “MD5 checksum has been copied to the clipboard”. This has caught me out numerous times when summing multiple files and ending up pasting the sum from the previous file because i didn’t press OK

    • 6. Raymond  |  September 22, 2017 at 10:27 pm

      Hi Mr T,

      I just tested and didn’t encountered the issue that you mentioned. The checksum is already copied to the clipboard before clicking the OK button.

      Can you test in other PC to confirm and also let me know what is the OS that you used to test?

        Hi Raymond,

        as requested, I have tried this on 2 different PC’s and get the same behaviour on both, both PC’s are using Windows 7 Professional SP1.

          Hi Mr T,

          Seems like it is a Windows 7 issue as one of the user also commented the same issue.

          I will find a Windows 7 PC to replicate to confirm.

            Hi, Raymond. After reading Mr T’s and Snowflake’s comments, as well as your responses, I tested for this copy-to-clipboard behavior on my Windows 10 x64 Pro version 1703. The Checksum Utility Pro 2.1 behaves as expected and does copy anywhere from a single checksum or all six checksums into the Windows clipboard as soon as a file is selected and BEFORE clicking on the Okay button. I verified by pasting to Notepad, switching between two different files, selecting different combinations of checksums in the Checksum Utility, and either BEFORE or AFTER clicking the Okay button. I verified that the proper checksums are copied into the Clipboard when I switch to a different selected file in the Checksum Utility on my Win 10 machine.

      I have exactly the same issue using Windows 7 version 2.1

      • 11. Raymond  |  September 22, 2017 at 10:43 pm

        Hi Snowflake,

        Thanks for the information.
        I have tested in Windows 8.
        Will find a Windows 7 PC to replicate to confirm.

      Hi tech adviser,

      Thanks for the support 🙂

    Would like to revive the request to have a portable version of MD5 & SHA Checksum utility and -with- a context menu, similar to the installed version.

    Portable without having to install first..

    Then rightclick a file,

    a) generate hash MD5 SHA256, in this way:
    -Modified date
    items, below each other and then copy to clipboard.

    This layout to be saved in settings within MD5&SHA Checksum Utility (a kind of preset, user-format).
    b) compare to clipboard

    It would be a nice ‘extra’ for the paid version.
    The download file to contain both an installer and a portable.

    The first time the portable version is launched it requires the purchased key and saves that as an encrypted file together with the portable .exe

    Maybe if other users are supporting this idea here, then you might be prepared to consider this??

    Keep up the good work!
