Checking an MD5 checksum on a Mac:

 

  • In Finder, browse to /Applications/Utilities.
  • Double-click on the Terminal icon. A Terminal window will appear.
  • In the Terminal window, type: "md5 " (md5 followed by a space).
  • Drag the downloaded file from the Finder into the Terminal window.
  • Click in the Terminal window, press the Return key, and compare the checksum displayed to the screen to the one on VMware's download page.
