    Tools>Compare by using SWx Network Monitor

    Michael Fernando

      It’s now possible to run Distributed File Conversion by Using Network Monitor; a group of computers share the processing load for conversion tasks.


      Is there a way that I could use this method to run Tools>Compare to compare two large assembly revisions directly from the WPDM vault?


      FYI: now it’s possible to browse the WPDM vault thru the file open window, which I was requesting since going from XP to Vista as we lost this capability.


      Also I assume that you are aware that by using this Tools>Compare method, it is going to rename the comparing files automatically by adding a suffix of the relevant revision “_REV**” of each file, which is a huge service.
