  • Suggestion: Rename "Version Compare"

    Just a small suggestion: From the name "Version Compare" it is not really obvious what that mode does. Also the tooltip in the homescreen "Visually compare version files to find differences." does not offer much of a clue. What are version files? The Help provides a tiny bit more info: "A Version Compare session compares version info in a pair of executable files." Oh, so it's just for .exe files? Shouldn't at least the tooltip mention that?

    Anyway, just my two cents. I'm sure it's difficult to come up with the perfect balance between technical jargon and friendly looking UI.

    Thanks for the feedback. It includes .exe and .dll primarily. but our full/default list includes:
    *.386;*.bcp;*.bpl;*.dll;*.drv;*.exe;*.ocx;*.scr;*. sys;*.vxd

    You can also create additional Version formats or add to this extension list. We do rename sessions from time to time, such as Data Compare -> Table Compare. We wouldn't change any naming conventions for a minor release, but might revisit them for BC5 (which is quite a ways off).
