Introduction:
Sometimes, during the download, a probe package may become corrupted for unknown reasons. Therefore it's very important to see the checksum to ensure the package is safe to install.
Background:
In some cases, the checksums are added in the probe Release Notes in support.nimsoft.com > Archive.

Environment:

Instructions:
As shown above, not all the packages on support.nimsoft.com carry the checksums. Moreover, they are not added into the UIM official product documentation. However, if you want to verify that a package is corruption and issues free there is a way to obtain its checksum. Please follow these steps:

* download the package from support.nimsoft.com to the Downloads folder
* execute 'C:\Users\user_name\Downloads>certutil -hashfile package_name.zip
Example:
cmd

* if you want to obtain the MD5 checksum, please add MD5 at the end of the command.
