I’m trying to update my Timefactor finally and I can get as far as choosing the update I want to install ( 5.2.0 ), and when I click to update I get this error popup that says “Downloading update failed The update file did not download correctly; the received file has an incorrect checksum. Please try again.” I’m using the 10.9 updater on my Mac on 10.9.5. I has no idea what the heck a checksum is, so I’m at an impass.
A checksum is a number that's calculated from all of the bytes in a file. When a file is downloaded, it's a way of checking that the file downloaded correctly and no pieces got corrupted or scrambled in transmission. You've tried downloading the file a few times, and you keep getting this error? I just emailed you the file.
