Where is WinnDiff form the C++ v6

P: n/a
C++ V6 had a tool that displayed the difference between two files (or two
folders)
I think it was called WinDiff but am not sure.

I do see it anywhere in VB.NET. Is it there someplace?

Can I get it some place or should I try to find it on the VS6 Cd's?

Thanks

AFAIK, it's not included any more (I am missing it too, but I have VS6
installed).

Not sure about VS 2002.

You have rerun VS.NET setup. If you haven't installed C++, you must drill
down into the C++ options, it is in there. I think it installs quite a bit
of other stuff just to get that one .exe though.

Thanks to all.

I found it by re-running VS2003 setup - It's an option under C++ and called
something like Tools Win32 Platform. And many things did come with it.
I have two folders under Program files: Microsoft Visual Studio NET
and Microsoft Visual Studio NET 2003

The first contains only one directory: Common7 which only contains IDE,
which contains a bunch of .hx? files.
Is that left from VS2002 and can be deleted??
Thanks again to all that answered the WinDiff post.

You will find WinDiff on the Windows 2000/XP(?) CD-ROM in the
"Support\Tools" folder too.
