SHA256 file?

Post by ajitama » Sun Dec 06, 2020 11:27 am

Hi, first time trying to download Everything. I have downloaded Everything-1.4.1.1000.x86-Setup.exe and tried to verify the hash with the SHA256 file provided below the download links and they do not match. the SHA256 file i downloaded was Everything-1.4.1.1000.sha256. Did i do something wrong here? (i am sure im checking the SHA256 hash)

I'm getting the correct sha256 hash for Everything-1.4.1.1000.x86-Setup.exe:
f9dedc6a5b47a41b9399182b57bc4240c0861eedb9a3bbaa45387034b6d09bf5

What hash are you getting? please make sure you are matching the correct file to the correct hash (eg: Lite/x86/x64/en-US).
What program are you using to produce the hash? -If you need a sha256 checker, please consider 7zip.
Please check your PC for viruses.

hi there, i am getting f9dedc6a5b47a41b9399182b57bc4240c0861eedb9a3bbaa45387034b6d09bf5 as sha256 for the x86 .exe. I feel like im using the SHA256 file that i downloaded wrong..? what would be the correct way to check it?
note: i am using cmd's CertUtil function to check it; and I am pretty sure my computer is clean of virus.

Sorry I didnt mean to imply anything was wrong with the sha256 i outputted. I just wanted to know what is the correct way of using the .sha256 file i obtained from the website to check the hash of my download because my .exe hash matches what void said, but when i tried to check it with the .sha256 file myself i get different results.

Open the downloaded file "Everything-1.4.1.1000.sha256" with an editor.
It contains SHA256 hash values for different files/versions, as already explained by the author above.

Hi tuska, thanks for explaining the process now i know whats wrong. and sorry i did not understood what the author meant by that at first glance due to my mistake.

note: to ovg, i dont know whether if my response to yours has gone missing or it isnt approved yet, but i didnt intend to mean that there was something wrong with my .exe file's hash. sorry about that.

ajitama's post still had to be approved at the time you wrote your reply.
So it was hidden and you could not have known what he wrote ...
