Hello

New user, just found Rainmeter, going to see what it can do. BUT... Before I install this sucker, I need some sort of checksum verification. I've searched - MD5, hash, checksum, MD5 hash. Not finding any pertinent results.

Thanks for any help, I'll also look for a better forum to pose the question.

The executable setup file (and all the executable files it installs) has a digital certificate / signature. Assuming it has that:

Then the file you have is good.

That is a thousand times more reliable and secure than matching up pairs of checksums.

Roger that, and yes it is. More secure.

Thanks for your time.
