where are official checksums posted for evaluation software? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Where does Microsoft post official checksums for verifying downloaded evaluation software?

    For example, where can I find md5/sha1/sha256 checksums for Windows 10 evaluation? (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/evaluate-windows-10-enterprise)

    I am aware that random third parties have posted checksums for the files, but I would only rely upon checksums published by Microsoft. If such checksums are not currently published, please do publish them somewhere on your site!

  • AFAIK, I don't believe there are official checksums posted anywhere. If they were going to be anywhere, I'd assume they'd be on the download pages, which they don't seem to be.
