@FanJ -- Nice deal Thanks!!! From time to time, this file integrity checker has helped me spot problems long before any other security app. It needs to be used everyday or two -- otherwise, the read-outs can get lengthy.
For those interested and for your info:
Version 7.03.0002 (17 March 2019) was build with Visual Studio 2017.
The changelog doesn't mention it.
The changelog for the initial version of version 7 (1 May 2016) did mention at that time that it was build with Visual Studio 2015.
Changelog can be found at https://www.adinf.com/en/faq/changelog.php
There have been made some info changes on the site related to Visual Studio and the Universal C Runtime download (if a person needs it).
The Changelog at https://www.adinf.com/en/faq/changelog.php
The (latest item at this moment) v7.03.0002 03/17/2019
If you click on it, you see now added:
FAQ item # 18 "Why does not ADinf32 start and complains that some DLLs are absent?" has been changed.
https://adinf.com/en/faq/ go there to # 18
It says now:
The ADinf site is now indeed telling that Visual Studio 2017 was used for the latest version.
It gives a new download link for the Universal C Runtime (if a person needs it).
And it gives a link to the article ("Microsoft ends Visual C++ Redistributable Chaos") from Martin Brinkmann at gHacks.
FAQ item # 19 has been changed too (same as FAQ # 18 was changed).
A new version of ADinf32, 8.00.0002, has been released.

Wow! Thank you, Kent
I didn't expect this to happen, wow !!
In the meanwhile there is more news:
Version 8.00.0004 - 6 May 2021
And it is now freeware.
At the moment I don't know yet whether the Pro version (which I have) is also free for personal use.
From the registration page at their website...
"License is still required for corporate usage and for Pro version"
Hello @FanJ ,
You are most welcome my friend ...
I also use the Pro version. My license has expired so I can confirm that the current free version is not Pro. I do not know what the plans are for the Pro version at the moment but there is no option to purchase it any longer.
A new version of ADinf32, 8.01.0003, has been released.

Thank you my dear friend!
I think that I didn't notice this "Incorrect ADinf32 termination "; but of course I could be wrong.
Will at some later moment upgrade, but not now.
You are most welcome ...
I did not notice the "Incorrect ADinf32 termination" either as ADinf32 seemed to run with no issues here.
I have already done the uninstall of the previous ADinf32 version and installed the new v8.01.
I think that there is something wrong with the Pro version. I might be wrong (of course I can be wrong), but I have sent an email to Dmitry about it. Let's wait.
Working with Dmitry. There might be a new version coming. Let's wait.
Let me tell some more.
The issue must have been started after the recent changes. Is it serious? No, I don't think so. But it is an issue. It affects the Pro version.
What is the difference between the Pro and non-Pro version?
The Pro version can use the LAN64 algorithm; the non-Pro version has CRC48 as strongest algorithm. It's up to the user to choose which one to use.
Here is a screenshot from my very old overview.
So, you can assign different checksum algorithms to different file types as you can see in that screenshot.
How did I discover the issue?
Well, I wanted to add another file type (let's say with extension .xyz ) and assign it the LAN64 algorithm. I could not; only CRC48 as strongest one. Then you know something is wrong.
After the recent changes I had gotten a Pro key.
It looks like there is something wrong with the Pro key system.
Although I was told that it would be fixed in a new version, I actualy don't know if and when that will happen.
