  • Update: Removed Adding File dialog. (Use Stop button to stop adding)
  • Update: Removed Unicode features from the Win9x version (Not supported)

Code page:
Md5Checker uses system's standards and formats setting to convert between Unicode and MBCS when save/load by default. If there are any characters your system setting cannot recognize, the path of file will not be saved/loaded correctly.
In Md5Checker 3.2, you can select an appropriate code page in the Options dialog, and do not have to change the system setting to suit every software.

Send To menu:
Send To menu is a convenient way to add a few files into a program. For instance, if you select multiple files in the Explorer and right click, and then select the context menu item - Check in Md5Checker, Explorer will launch multiple instance of Md5Checker like this: Md5Checker file1, Md5Checker file2... But if you use the Send To menu, Explorer will launch one instance of Md5Checker and pass these files to it like this: Md5Checker file1 file2...
Using Send To menu has one weakness - cannot add lots of files at one time, because the system has a command line length limitation. But don't worry, you can always use Add command or drag-and-drop to add lots of files.

Any comments from you regarding bug reports for Md5Checker are greatly appreciated.
