KBEA-00168 Verify the Installer's Integrity by Checking the md5 Hash

Summary

You can check the validity of your installer by checking the MD5 hash of the installer and comparing it to the provided MD5 hash file on Sharefile for the respective installer.

To verify the installer, please follow these steps (examples shown):

Windows - CertUtil Documentation

  1. Download <ElectricAccelerator-Installer-version>.exe.md5 from Sharefile and move to same folder as your installer. 
  2. certUtil -hashfile <ElectricAccelerator-Installer-version>.exe MD51md5.PNG
  3. cat <ElectricAccelerator-Installer-version>.exe.md5:2md5.PNG
  4. Compare the two results. If the hash values are different, then the installer has been corrupted and requires a re-download.

Linux - Md5Sum Documentaiton

  1. Download <ElectricAccelerator-Installer-version>.md5 from Sharefile and move to same folder as your installer.  
  2. md5sum <ElectricAccelerator-Installer-Version>
  3. cat <ElectricAccelerator-Installer-Version>.md5
  4. Compare the two results. If the hash values are different, then the installer has been corrupted and requires a re-download.
