Tools to check file presence and integrity after installation



  • I have different versions of different programs, that require different sets of files/resources. Knowing a list, I would like to check after the installation of a software, that all the corresponding files are present in some folders. This list would be an XML file, or a .properties or whatever. Checking the file integrity, with a checksum for example, would also be awesome.

    Is there an existing tool for that ?



  • Simple C# app would help to solve most of the things you have mentioned

    • Read from input XML, file name and the expected path and report results for file existence
    • Same Approach - Read folders / programs that need to be checked for their existence
    • Other custom needs that you have mentioned - file integrity, with a checksum can also be achieved

    I would prefer writing these utilities as it is a great way to learn coding / as well customized for your need
