I downloaded Armory from here and the checksum file from here using the links from the main installation page. I downloaded the Win64 .msi installer.

From there, I used a Cygwin prompt and fciv to verify the download. I didn't feel like downloading keys, etc., so I just looked at the checksum in the .txt.asc file, and compared the first few characters to the fciv output. As you can see, there's a mismatch.

How should I proceed? Is it safe to install anyway, probably because I'm doing something wrong?

Looks like a SHA256 hash. Try fciv -sha256 or sha256sum.
