[quote name='HansV' post='762548' date='01-Mar-2009 01:58']Does MD5 for Visual Basic (VB) do what you want?[/quote]Thanks Hans! Yes it does .
Now... next problem: unfortunately it's too slow for large files, yields an error with a 'regular' file,...
So (before spending time figuring out workarounds & debugging) I tried using the Shell function & a small freeware MD5 generator of DiamondCS (page includes screenshot).
I put this generator in the same folder along with my database... and 'run' it with these lines (in order to yield the hash for a file called plan.htm which resides in the same folder too):
The MgsBox returns a (every time different) number instead of the hash string.
Is my Shell command wrong? Or is there something else wrong here? (Or should I contact the creator of this tool?)
I feel pretty much like a greeny...
