1.0.3.0 is available.

Since now when there is no thumbnails, "No preview" row will be hidden by default. This feature is now connected with "Show empty/error nodes" option., so the only way to see it again is checking it.

There is also the possibility to see files icons too.
When there is no thumbnail, icon will be shown. This procedure will also resize row's height when needed.

OK. 1.0.3.1 with two changes ;)

Ehhh.... I was careless and forgot about enabling panels after drag'n'drop so 1.0.3.2 had to be published.

Please take a look on WWW and you will find that:
1. TC is not required,
2. simple "step by step how to" if written down there (even with movie).
I agree that mention should be made in the first post that TC isn't required.  I had to dig deep to find out if this works without TC.  I think you'd have more users.

Isn't it possible to create a registry key to use Comparer via the context menu?  Something like
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Comparer\Command]
""drive:\path\Comparer.exe" %1 %2"

I'm not familiar with the formatting and you can't google search "%1".

If this was directly accessible from Explorer it would always be one of the first things I installed.  It should be built-in as default.  Thanks for sharing.

"TC issue" is described in Requirements :)

I've been also trying to make Comparer work from Explorer's context menu but registry tricks are not working for multiple files. Comparer is loaded for each file separately. I spent two days investigating this problem back in December and the only thing I could make is to make Comparer use only single instance. In this case it was OK. Unfortunately: I don't want that this way because I would like to have the possibility to have as many Comparers opened as I like.

There might be the way: shell extensions. If someone is wiling to write one for my app I will gladly distribute it together with one package. True is I've tried to write it in C# by my own but it appeared to be too much for me to achieve :(

I will gladly welcome anyone who is willing to create Explorer's menu extension for Comparer.

There's an even easier solution that works brilliantly. 
Create a shortcut to comparer in your SendTo folder, now select any 2 files in explorer, right click, SendTo->Comparer.

You're right. I forgot that one.

Well, no wonder about that. I don't even remember have I ever used "Send To" ;)

Comparer 1.0.6.0  and ComparerCmd 0.0.6.0 are out.

The main change is replacing internal plugins handling engine with external DLL (wdx_proxy) written by Franck8244.
Thanks to this step few more plugins work with my tool.

I have also uploaded Extended pack which contains:
- Comparer and ComparerCmd tools,
- Office 2007 plugin - for viewing MS Office 2007 files properties,
- SVGwdx plugin - for viewing SVG images properties,
- xPDFSearch plugin - for PDF files properties (by Lefteous).

1.0.10.0 is out!

I've updated SourceGrid control to 4.21 version. I hope this will fix rare exception with double click on separators.
