General Info

General information about cSFVse

This version of the the program, is supposed to be used with a ftp server..
checking uploaded files and generating progress info..

The SFV program calculate the CRC32 value of the file it´s checking
and verify´s it with the checksum written in the .sfv file..

Mathematically it can be proven that CRC32 catches all errors
below 33 bit and 99,99999998% of all errors above 32 bit.

Main Features

HOWTO: Integrate cSFVse into FlashFXP

HOWTO: Integrate cSFVse into FlashFXP
Written by: turbo|TBL

Obtaining the software:
-FlashFXP can be downloaded and legally used for 30 days.
-cSFVse is freely available from his website. What a nice guy :)


For the purposes of this howto, we use "C:\Program Files\FlashFXP" for the
FlashFXP install location, and "C:\Program Files\FlashFXP\cSFVse" for the
cSFVse install location.


1. Extract cSFVse archive to the location of your choice.

2. Create the .bat file and then insert the contents via a text editor:
Filename: sfvcheck.bat

"C:\Program Files\FlashFXP\cSFVse\cSFVd.exe" -file "%1"

***NOTE: make sure the paths reflect your own systems configuration
***NOTE: Thise whole file should only contain one (1) line

3. In your FlashFXP installation directory, locate the file 'FlashFXP.ini'
and open it in a text editor.

4. Insert the following block of text into the file 'FlashFXP.ini':
Filename: FlashFXP.ini

app="C:\Program Files\FlashFXP\sfvcheck.bat"

***NOTE: make sure the paths reflect your own systems configuration
***NOTE: Thise whole file should only contain one (4) lines

Final Notes: FlashFXP must be restarted for changes to take effect. Also,
you will most likely want to go through cSFVse's GUI and set the
applications options according to your own tastes/preferences.
