    The  CertUtil could be a pre-installed Windows utility, that may be accustomed generate hash checksums.

    CertUtil -hashfile pathToFileToCheck [HashAlgorithm]
    HashAlgorithm choices: MD2 MD4 MD5 SHA1 SHA256 SHA384 SHA512
    

    So as an example, the subsequent generates associate degree MD5 substantiation for the file C:\TEMP\MyDataFile.img:

    CertUtil -hashfile C:\TEMP\MyDataFile.img MD5
    

     

    To get output almost like *Nix systems you’ll add some notation magic:

    Even though MD5 it will produce the good checksum to validate a file.Some of the files are listed at the bottom of the page then it will works.

    Using the Cygwin,it puts the whole smörgåsbord of Linux utilities — there will be  md5sum and  cryptographical digests supported by OpenSSL.

    Right-click on the file you want to run a checksum against and choose “Properties” from the context menu. 3. Click the tab labelled “File Hashes” at the top of the window to see the MD5, SHA-1 and CRC32 hashes for the file you selected

    CertUtil -hashfile pathToFileToCheck [HashAlgorithm]
    HashAlgorithm choices: MD2 MD4 MD5 SHA1 SHA256 SHA384 SHA512

    So as an example, the subsequent generates associate degree MD5 substantiation for the file C:\TEMP\MyDataFile.img:

    CertUtil -hashfile C:\TEMP\MyDataFile.img MD5

    Download fciv.exe directly from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=11533

    shell> fciv.exe [yourfile]
    

    will give you md5 by default.

    You can read up the help file fciv.exe -h

    Any MD5 will produce a good checksum to verify the file. Any of the files listed at the bottom of this page will work fine.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Md5sum

    So for example, the following generates an MD5 checksum for the file C:\TEMP\MyDataFile.img:

    CertUtil -hashfile C:\TEMP\MyDataFile.img MD5
    

    To get output similar to *Nix systems you can add some PS magic:

    $(CertUtil -hashfile C:\TEMP\MyDataFile.img MD5)[1] -replace " ",""
