WinDiff is the ultimate tool for comparing two versions of a text file. Its roots are as a developer tool for comparing different versions of source files to see changes before checking them into version control. It was also useful as a debugging tool to figure out which changes in a source file might have introduced a problem. WinDiff was originally available in the Windows Software Development Kit (SDK). Microsoft included it in the last several Windows resource kits. It comes with Windows XP as part of the Windows XP Support Tools. Install the tools from \Support\Tools on your Windows XP CD. Type windiff in the Run dialog box to start it. After starting WinDiff, here's how to compare two REG files with it: 1. On the File menu, click Compare Files. 2. Type the path and name of the first file, and click Open. 3. Type the path and name of the second file, and click Open. 4. On the View menu, click Expand, or double click the files in the list. After comparing the two files, you see results similar to Figure 8 2. WinDiff combines both files and highlights the differences in red and yellow. Differences are relative to the second file, which is why I had you open the second file after the first one. Deleted lines, present in the first file but not in the second, are red. Inserted lines, absent in the first file but present in the second, are yellow. White lines are the same in both files. You also see arrows that indicate whether a line is deleted or inserted. A left arrow (<!) indicates a line deleted from the second file, and a right arrow(!>) indicates a line inserted into the second file. WinDiff represents changed lines as deletions followed by insertions, as shown in Figure 8 2. Because WinDiff compares files line by line instead of character by character, you have to judge for yourself whether a deleted line followed by an inserted line represents a changed line of text. Press F8 to move to the next block of differences that WinDiff found; press F7 to move to the previous block of differences.

On the odd chance that WinDiff isn't available to you (for example, if you're not free to install the support tools on a customer's computer), you can use the comparison features of Word to compare REG files. You might also prefer using Word if you're already familiar with the word processor and don't want to install or learn how to use WinDiff. The only drawback is that using Word to compare REG files is often a slow and tedious process because it's not designed for this purpose. When using Word to compare REG files, open the second REG file first, and compare it to the first REG file. This order ensures that Word indicates insertions and deletions properly. Here's how to compare two REG files using Word: 1. On the File menu, click Open, type the path and name of the first REG file in the File Name box, and click Open. 2. If the File Conversion dialog box appears, select the encoding method that makes the text in the Preview area readable, and then click OK. You can choose between Windows (Default), MS DOS, and Other Encoding. Windows (Default) corresponds to ANSI, which is what version 4 REG files use. If the file is a version 5 REG file, select the Other Encoding option, and then click Unicode in the list. 3. On the Tools menu, click Compare And Merge Documents, type the path and name of the second REG file, and then click Merge. 4. If the File Conversion dialog box appears, select the encoding method that makes the text in the Preview area readable. Word displays the results as shown in Figure 8 3. To see the next change, click the Next button on the Reviewing toolbar. To see the previous change, click the Previous button. Word displays the results differently depending on the view: Normal view. To switch to the normal view, click Normal on the View menu. This is the view shown in Figure 8 3. By default, insertions are underlined. Deletions are crossed out. Print Layout view. To switch to Print Layout view, click Print Layout on the View menu. In this view, you see bubbles in the right column that describe the differences between the two files. This view is often the easiest to read. 185

Figure 8 3: Word is effective at comparing large REG files, but much slower than WinDiff. Tip When comparing two REG files in Word, make sure that you disable grammar and spelling checking. Word isn't likely to find many correctly spelled words in a REG file, so it burns up a lot of resources checking them. To disable both features, on the Tools menu, click Options. In the Options dialog box, click the Spelling & Grammar tab, and clear the Check Spelling As You Type and Check Grammar As You Type check boxes.
