FAILED and Thread Error: Access is denied (5)

Hi.

Today I was comparing some ISO's (about 600 MB) using Hasher 1.20, SHA1.
More often then not, I received FAILED.

Fired up Hasher 1.00.
It worked (the first time*).  (And yes I do <now> see that Hasher 1.00 SHA1 code is flawed.)
But then sometimes, it would get so far along, & then just hang.
At the hang, if I were to hit "Pause", an error would be generated: "Thread Error: Access is denied (5)".
the first time* - but not all the time, though it seemed more so then 1.20.


I'm going to assume that a FAILED & a "Thread Error: Access is denied (5)" are (may be) one in the same?


Anyhow, the more verbose error message in 1.00 jogged a memory.

See what I wrote here, File Comparator Residual Thread Left Open?.

Perhaps it is not an Altap Salamander issue at all, as when I dragged the same files from a Windows Explorer window (opened from Salamander) into Hasher, I still received FAILED & or hangs.


(No problems at all when using Nirsoft's HashMyFiles.)

Re: FAILED and Thread Error: Access is denied (5)

I think I remember encountering the FAILED error a few times myself on some "large" files (more than 100MB in size) previously, when trying to perform a CRC32 on it. Didn't really look into it too closely, because I have other tools that can generate and verify CRC32 checksums.

All I particularly remember about this (which was a few months ago), was that when the file was hashing, it would get partway through, then return FAILED. It was repeatable, but only to an extent.... I could try to hash again immediately afterwards to re-generate the error, but when I used a different (and successful) hashing tool, then followed up with Hasher, then it worked fine. hmm

Re: FAILED and Thread Error: Access is denied (5)

Hasher 1.00 has its problems and is very much outdated. I would strongly recommend using the latest development version of Hasher v3 which can be downloaded from here: Hasher3Alpha.zip

As it is an Alpha release, some extra options are not yet implemented but the newly redesigned hashing engine and the new hashing libraries are performing very well now.

Re: FAILED and Thread Error: Access is denied (5)

It's been a while & I've been meaning to drop back in to say thank you.
The alpha has been working just fine*.

(*Fine enough.  I no longer have issues with results being returned.  As an alpha, there could be some tweaks, but nothing I'm going to complain about.)
