This article discusses about verifying the integrity of an Atmel Studio installer. This is required when you face issues trying to install Atmel Studio. To do so,
- Check the size of the downloaded file against the one, published in the website.
- Check if the installer name is same as what it is in the website
- Check the checksum of the installer. The checksum is the most reliable way. To verify the checksum of a downloaded file there are a number of tools available . One such is fciv.exe. Download this tool and run it from the command prompt as follows. (More info about fciv tool.)
> fciv.exe -md5 -sha1 <full_path_to_atmelstudioinstaller.exe>
The above command will emit a hash key. Verify if it is same as the one mentioned in the Atmel website. (Note : The checksum should be available in the same page as the atmel studio download link. Both md5 and sha1 should be available.)
More information about the utility is here.
