Checksum – how to make sure you have downloaded a valid version of Gig Performer –

To ensure that you have not downloaded a corrupt version of Gig Performer, or worse, a version into which malware has been injected, you can verify that your downloaded installer is legitimate by running a command that produces a unique code when applied to the installer file. This code, normally a very long string of characters and numbers is called a checksum.

You can then compare that checksum to the one we publish below (we ran the same command against our installers) to make sure they match. We assume you are familiar with the use of the terminal window (Mac) or the CMD Prompt/Powershell (Windows)
