MD5WIN ReadMe


Package Name

MD5WIN

Version

1, 0, 0, 3

Synopsis

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.

Installation

Unzip MD5WIN.zip into any directory of your choosing. Since MD5WIN.zip 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.

User Manual

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.

License

This program is licensed under the GNU General Public License, anended as follows.

It is our desire that the source code form of this program shall be the basis for other useful work. To that end, we are prepaared to make exceptions to the GPL on a case by case basis. To request permission to use some or all of the source code in a derivative work which you intend to keep private, please contact the author at the address given in the accompanying user manual.

If you petition the author for a waiver of certain sections of the GPL, you can expect the request to be acknowledged and granted without fuss, so long as your approach and intentions are honorable, professional, and ethical, since the goal is to gain exposure and good will.

Source Code Availability

Because this program is licensed under the GPL and it is our desire that the source code shall be broadly beneficial, the source code is freely available here.

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.
