====================================================================
Details & Usage
====================================================================
Built on .NET Framework 4.5

Supported Checksum Algorithms:
MD5, MD5-CNG
SHA-1, SHA-1 Managed, SHA-1 CNG
SHA-256, SHA-256 Managed, SHA-256 CNG
SHA-384, SHA-384 Managed, SHA-384 CNG
SHA-512, SHA-512 Managed, SHA-512 CNG
RIPEMD160, RIPEMD160 Managed
CRC16
CRC32

Supports 3 modes:
Single File
Multiple File
Text string

You can generate hashes for either mode, or compare to a checksum provided to the program by the user.

To use (single or Multiple File modes):
1) Select desired algorithm(s) (default is MD5 - assumed this would be most used)
2) Select a tab (mode) to use
3) (Optional) If verifying a file's checksum, enter it in the "Checksum" field.
4) Browse for a file to generate
5) Click the Compare button
Note: for large files it may take some time... be patient!
6) The result will appear in the appropriate section in the tab's section.
a) For Single File mode: the checksum generated for the file will appear in the "File Checksum" field. If comparing to an entered Checksum, the result will display below the File Checksum field, noting if it is a match or mismatch. The checksum generated from the file will also turn green for a match, and red for a mismatch.

b) For Multiple Files mode: The generated checksum(s) will appear in the list to the right of the Browse and Compare buttons for each file. It will also note if there was a match or mismatch to the given Checksum (if one was given).

To use Text String Mode:
1) Select desired algorithm(s)
2) Input a text string in the "Input String" box
a) Input a checksum to compare against if desired
3) Select an encoding method
4) Click Generate/Compare button

lol @ the license.
Do you think we could possibly get a link to the source code? ;)

I like that license ever since I found it a few years ago haha.

Could upload the source if you wanted - nothing too special though haha.

Edit: Added source code attachment in first post.

Maaaaajor overhaul on the application. Pretty much rewrote the entire application on top of .NET 4.5.

Updated to v4.3.0. v4.0.0 is where I did the initial WPF conversion. From there I added some multithreading capability (BackgroundWorker to separate the UI from processing), tweaked the UI (re-ordered some things and added a statusbar), added a Text String hash generator/comparison, and some other smaller things.

The GitHub releases page shows screenshots: https://github.com/carnageX/ChecksumVerifierWPF/releases
