in verifying that this package's contents are trustworthy. has a sha256 checksum specified in the `tools\ChocolateyInstall.ps1` file which downloads the NimbleText zip.

To calculate the checksum for yourself -- you can use the chocolatey package "checksum"

Install it, if needed, with: `choco install checksum`

Manually download the zip file for yourself from

And then calculate its checksum with:

	checksum -t sha256 -f "" checksum is: "84C655E76538A845F409E1206925D31FDE8968D18B15394F25CD1E8A05F302F7"

It is a commandline helper that lets a .exe gui file act like a console app. It can be expected to have this checksum:



# Install script for NimbleText
# checks the checkSum of the zip file after downloading.

$package = 'NimbleText'

$drop = "$(Split-Path -parent $MyInvocation.MyCommand.Definition)"
$checkSum = "84C655E76538A845F409E1206925D31FDE8968D18B15394F25CD1E8A05F302F7"

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
