MD5WIN is graphical mode Windows program for computing and comparing MD5 digest strings for files and text strings.
Note: Please see the revison history below for the latest information about updates. Updates are published irregularly, and sometimes frequently, as bugs are found and fixed and enhancements are made and tested internally.
MD5WIN.zip into any directory of your choosing. Since
requires no support files, other than its help file, which is the accompanying Adobe PDF file,
you may install it into any convenient directory. The program knows the name of the directory
from which it was loaded.
Since the manual is accessible from within the program, you need only one shortcut, and both files may be installed onto a shared drive on a server.
The MD5WIN user manual is an Adobe PDF document, which you may read on line. This is the very same file that is included in the binary distribution.
This program is licensed under the GNU General Public License, anended as follows.

The source was built with Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 (coming as part of Microsoft Visual Studio 5.0, Service Pack 5) and the August 2001 version of the Microsoft Platform SDK, all installed on a Windows XP workstation.
Note that the MD5 digest of your build will differ from mine, even if you build it exactly "as is" because the copy that I published is signed with a code signing certificate issued by Thawte Consulting (Pty) Ltd.
