    Default Integrity check for Beyond compare 3

    Is there a way to make an integrity check of the executable downloaded file of Beyond Compare 3? Like md5 or crc?

    Hello,

    If you right-click the setup.exe or application and check Properties, Under Digital Signatures tab, you can check the signed certificates. It is also recommended to download the setup.exe directly from us or a trusted source:

    Thank you very much for your responde.
    But, this just shows the digital signatures hash
    If we change the binary of the installer, wont run, but the certificate will still be equally there although the data integrity is currupted.

    The certificate will be invalid or no longer appear if the executable has had its binary changed.

    You are correct, thank you very much,

    Although i would suggest having a the hash of the installer available just so anyone could see if no only the certificate was valid but also the binary for the installer

    Keep up the god work
