Check the integrity of a file

Recommended Posts

PcExpert

Hi all,

I was wondering if there's any way to check the MD5 or CRC32 checksum from a file to be sure there has not been tampered with. For example: I have an update exe to check for updates for the program, but people could easily replace the exe by an empty textfile (renamed to update.exe for example) to bypass the update. So is there any way to check this?

Thanks!

Thanks Monoceres,

I tried the MD5 function earlier, which I forgot to tell. Now I tried the CRC32 function and it works like a charm!
