How to calculate the SHA 256 hash sum of Everything

Post by void » Tue Aug 07, 2018 10:23 am

Every version of Everything has an associated sha hash file.
For example, Everything 1.4.1.895 has the following sha hash file:
Everything-1.4.1.895.sha256
8b2ce3f3a0fde214641d526d5a341f46a05ff8fd79dcb6e75d8cebd75317398a *Everything-1.4.1.895.x64-Setup.exe
6e2eb80112343d0f93989e0cb985055792c6402649aa0d11145726ccf896bb32 *Everything-1.4.1.895.x86-Setup.exe

#x86:

These long strings are unique to each file and can be used to verify that the downloaded file originally came from voidtools.

To calculate the SHA 256 sum of a downloaded file:
  • From a command prompt, run:
    CertUtil -hashfile C:\Downloads\Everything.exe SHA256
  • Where C:\Downloads\Everything.exe is the file to calculate the SHA 256 sum.

MD5 sums are also available for every version of Everything, for example:
Everything-1.4.1.895.md5
a4e9802632d9441ed55b0292153b98f9 *Everything-1.4.1.895.x64-Setup.exe
f8ca56964f10b3042bf06eabac6a4029 *Everything-1.4.1.895.x86-Setup.exe
1080f7ad821da7af10c9b5b09881eff7 *Everything-1.4.1.895.x64.en-US-Setup.exe
2cd33ff7b95129657b7c64c97b86c9fe *Everything-1.4.1.895.x86.en-US-Setup.exe
fcfa06ca46f68c9ab87791f4d0d436f7 *Everything-1.4.1.895.x64.zip
1450f8759bf734d98bb6c4037ec26cf6 *Everything-1.4.1.895.x86.zip
9d189eef250757dc57d2a813aae90cb2 *Everything-1.4.1.895.x64.en-US.zip
4de0769921551ea0dff98b911e98c885 *Everything-1.4.1.895.x86.en-US.zip
#x86:
8add121fa398ebf83e8b5db8f17b45e0 *Everything.exe
#x64:
0a02476bd4a0e3f367a7922a3d456626 *Everything.exe
To calculate the MD5 sum of a downloaded file:
  • From a command prompt, run:
    CertUtil -hashfile C:\Downloads\Everything.exe MD5
  • Where C:\Downloads\Everything.exe is the file to calculate the MD5 sum.
Everything is also code signed by David Carpenter.
Everything is now signed by voidtools.

Calculating MD5, SHA1 and SHA256 for Everything


PS:

certutil is not available on XP.
(Though I do have certutil.ex_ from an old Win2K boot CD, that I'm sure I can expand.)
(Expands, but doesn't seem to accomplish anything, on XP. I also have a sha256sum.exe that works. [And md5sum.exe that works on .md5.])

Of course you can use a GUI hash utility (or other command-line utility).
Not all may handle ".md5" or ".sha256" files, but should be able to handle the hashes found within the .md5 & .sha256 files.

Like 7-Zip ( a lot of people already have this installed). If you configure this in the options:
2018-08-07 17_14_06-Window.png
Then you get an extra context-menu entry (in File Explorer, Everything, other filemanagers, ...):
2018-08-07 17_18_14-Window.png
Resulting in:
2018-08-07 17_19_20-Window.png
Note that 7-Zip does not give you a MD5 checksum. Probably because MD5 is no longer safe (it is possible to change the file while keeping the MD5 hash the same). That being said, MD5 is still my default check as it is the fastest and accurate enough for my purposes, so now I'm going to disble this option again :)

Currently I'm using CHK Checksum Utility
with adding a shortcut (.lnk) of the EXE to SendTo folder
