boot deleter bad checksum

Post by whitequill » Tue May 03, 2011 5:58 pm

I have downloaded boot deleter, and I have found the no matter where I get it the hash is bad.

This is generated from QuckiHash

Hi whitequill,

the Boot Deleter download comes as a .zip file; the hashes you're seeing on the site are for that zip. It appears you're checking the hash of the executable within the zip.

If you use QuickiHash to check the zip file, it should display hashes that are like the one on the site. EG. this is what is being displayed here while I check the hashes:

Filename: BootDeleter.zip

Hope this helps!

Thank you for that correction, I was hoping it would explain an error I'm getting when I press "Integrate with shell"
Run-time error '26001':

Failed to set registry value Key: '-214783648',Section:
'*\shell\bootdeleter',Key" " to value: 'Boot Deleter'
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate.

This seems to be an error with permissions.

You could try running Boot Deleter with admin privileges by right-clicking on the executable and selecting Run as administrator and then trying to integrate with the shell. From that point onwards, you can run Boot Deleter as normal without any admin privileges.

If this doesn't work, this may be due to UAC. You may need to temporarily disable Windows' UAC (from the User Accounts area) to get Boot Deleter integrated.

Alternatively, you can drop and drag files directly onto the application icon if you'd prefer not to have to jump through these security hoops.

Yep! that was it.
Run as Administrator, worked.

I wish there was more, drag and drop functionality in Windows.
Is there something you could do to make this function more obvious?

There are some features missing in Boot Deleter, such as drag & drop as you've mentioned. Unfortunately BD is written in a language I no-longer use.

You can create a desktop shortcut to Boot Deleter.exe and drop icons directly onto that shortcut. The advantage of using it this way is that BD only runs temporarily and when required.

Not sure I know what you mean; could you elaborate?
