How to verify the checksum of .NET Agent downloads

Read about how to confirm the checksum for New Relic's .NET agent installers. If you need the hashes for our current releases, download their SHA256 hashes from our download site.

Windows

On Windows, we recommended using either CertUtil or Get-FileHash to compute a file hash.

CertUtil

This utility is available as part of Certificate Services and can be used to compute the hash of a file. This utility can be run from the Command Prompt or Powershell.

To compute the hash, run:

CertUtil -hashfile YOUR_FILENAME SHA256

If successful, you'll get this response:

SHA256 hash of YOUR_FILENAME:
5092fd52e40132a41ac06c320296cd9d63196d6de0fa6ce9b74fc4de1b3f9502
CertUtil: -hashfile command completed successfully.

Powershell: Get-FileHash

The Get-FileHash cmdlet is included with Powershell version 5.1+ and can be used to compute the hash of a file.

To compute the hash, run:

Get-FileHash YOUR_FILENAME Algorithm SHA256 | Format-List

If successful, you'll get this response:

Algorithm : SHA256
Hash      : 5092FD52E40132A41AC06C320296CD9D63196D6DE0FA6CE9B74FC4DE1B3F9502
Path      : C:\Path\To\YOUR_FILENAME

Linux

On Linux, we recommend using

sha256sum

to compute a file hash.

sha256sum

To compute the hash, run:

sha256sum YOUR_FILENAME

If successful, you'll get this response:

5092fd52e40132a41ac06c320296cd9d63196d6de0fa6ce9b74fc4de1b3f9502 YOUR_FILENAME
