The MD5 hash or checksum is the digital fingerprint of a file that can be used to check if a file has changed. The MD5 is a 32-character hexadecimal value. If the file is corrupted during download, the MD5 value will be different from the original.
In the Linux Operating System, the command is md5sum. Execute the command in a terminal console.
$ md5sum intime_v1.3.2_64bit_linux.sh b14172d7c7b43e01902cfafbf9b237e6 intime_v1.3.2_64bit_linux.sh
In the Windows Operating System, use a browser to search for “Microsoft File Checksum Integrity Verifier” – the tool name is fciv.exe. Download and install the tool. Execute the command in a Command Prompt.
