Revoking applications using revoke.exe - hash/base64 calc RRS feed

  • Question

  • The SDK comes with a tool called revoke.exe which produces the base64 hash for a cab, exe or cert file.

    I want to do the same but code it myself. As far as I am aware its a SHA1 hash of the cab, exe or cer file, based 64'd. But if I do the same the hash I get is different. So revoke must be doing something else.

    Does anybody know what it is doing different?

  • I don't think the detailed specification for revoke.exe is publicly available. It would be hard to guess the implementation details.
