&lt;p&gt;If the checksum matches the sha256 checksum above, then your local file is undamaged.
There is also a command line sha256 tool for Microsoft Windows, which can be downloaded
&lt;a href=&#34;http://www.labtestproject.com/files/win/sha256sum/sha256sum.exe&#34;&gt;here.&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Once you&amp;rsquo;ve downloaded the file above, you can proceed to the &lt;a href=&#34;https://desktop.aims.ac.za/getting-started&#34;&gt;Getting Started&lt;/a&gt; section that will guide you through the installation process.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;We&amp;rsquo;ll get the latest release updated on mirrors ASAP.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;!--
Mirrors are sites that keep a copy of our download location so that local users can download it much faster. Choosing a mirror closest to you should result in the fastest download times.

If you have bandwidth to spare and would like to host a copy of AIMS Desktop, you can sync via `
rsync://desktop.aims.ac.za/aims-desktop-iso/` and  &lt;a href=&#34;mailto:help@aims.ac.za&#34;&gt;email us&lt;/a&gt; a link and we&#39;ll add it to this page.
