Different SHA1 Checksum using Microsoft file checksum integrity verifier

Greeting all:

I downloaded the Gpg4win 2.3.0 (Released: 2015-11-25)

from https://www.gpg4win.org/download.html

I did a checksum using Microsoft file checksum integrity verifier as

C:\Users\edsw\utility>fciv.exe ..\..\Downloads\gpg4win-2.3.0.exe


// File Checksum Integrity Verifier version 2.05.


4a88f90a01b0ba8e3eb0073f7b6a4bfb ..\..\downloads\gpg4win-2.3.0.exe

The checksum is different from the one announced on the site

SHA1 checksum (for gpg4win2.3.0.exe):

I believe that nothing has been tampered with the version  gpg4win-2.3.0.exe
that I have downloaded. Is there any reason why the Microsoft file checksum
integrity verifier (fciv) will produce a different checksum?

May be the checksum announced on the https://www.gpg4win.org/download.html

has not been updated for a while???

Please comment.  Thanks in advance for your assistance with my query

Best regards,
