Where's windiff in Visual Studio 2012RC Express?

    Question

  • I use windiff extensively in my work, but could not find it in Visual Studio 2012 RC Express. Is it included in VS2012RC commercial SKUs, or no longer available?

  • Windiff was dropped from all SKUs. Moving to tools for suggestions on replacement(s).

  • You can get it from an early version of Visual Studio or Windows SDK. Or find alternatives like this one reviewed on MSDN magazine .

  • Thank you all, I'll try WinMerge to see if it matches Windiff. I may not try devenv /diff as it's an overkill. Sometimes I am confused and wonder why Microsoft abandon extravagantly some good technologies, tools etc.

  • No good deed goes unpunished. The SDK's team's budget does not get adjusted according to the inflation of new SDK documentations, tools and samples.
