has a lot of associated bits and pieces I make a copy of the Program Files
folder in C:\Temp, install on top of the existing Program Files folder, run
the program once to make sure any setup type stuff gets done:
.... then run SynchronizeIt to compare the two folders.
Any differences it finds in text type files are spotted and you can invoke
CompareIt from within SynchronizeIt to check anything interesting.
Obvious candidates are new versions of readme files or for Notetab any clip
libraries etc that have changed. The pro version of CompareIt (for the first
30 days or until you pay for it) provides built-in facility to selectively
merge changes. Even without it, you can spot the changes and do them
manually if needed.
Both SynchronizeIt and CompareIt are available at: http://www.grigsoft.com/
Also worth getting is HTML-diff at:
for applications that provide help etc in HTML format.
Last one, since I'm on a roll :-)
I've loaded it with ALL programs I have installed and some I'm considering
getting. Most sites have some kind of change.log page - point to that and
get immediate notification any time a new version comes out. You may not
want to get them immediately but at least you'll know they exist!
