Sometimes downloaded files come with a md5 hash. Md5 is an algorithm which translates any string or any file into a 128 bit value. This value then can be used to verify the integrity of the downloaded file : just re-generate the md5 hashvalue with a proper utility and compare the generated and the published value. Apparently md5 is not that good, but that's beside the point. It is widely used. There are quite a few md5 checksum utilities available, but the other day I found out that this is baked into win10 as well. No need to download and install a separate utility for this purpose.
A funny roundabout way to go 'native' on different platforms is through "Nativefier" If you run Nativefier (node : Nativefier "<your site url>" ) you'll end up with a "native" executable depending on the platform you've started Nativefier on : WIndows (.exe), OSX or Linux I've tried it out on a couple of Smart Pascal projects and it works sort of ok. I noticed projects which use a timer function (w3timer) get some unexpected results and pop-up dialogs don't come up by default.
