Issue Details

During installation of NXG I get the following error: 

Package signature validation failed for package 'ni-labview-nxg-2.0.0-analysis-advanced-bin'. Expected MD5 checksum '7d9726d8de6e612a74b98 6ac550f2dc' is different from actual checksum '5bd9422c4488cb52f9b10b4819b864ad' The package may be corrupted: C:\ProgramData\National Instruments\NI Package Manager\packages\ni=labview-nxg-2.0.0-advanced-bin_5.2.049154-0+f2_windows_x64.nipkg 
Please check your internet connection and try again.


The checksum error either due to a corrupted installation of NI Package manager or a corrupted download of the package itself. 

Please try the following steps.
  1.  *Navigate to  C:\\ProgramData\National Instruments\NI Package Manager\Downloads 
  2. Search for the name of the package you are having the error. 
  3. Delete the package.
  4. Try to download and  install again the package. 

*Note: The program data folder in Windows is a hidden folder.
