Using SmartDiff through TFS Pending Changes window or Team Explorer Window

Apr 7 at 2:23 PM
First let me say SmartDiff has been wonderful to work with on my SSIS packages on a solution by solution basis.

Now that I have made all my changes I want to go though all of my .dstx changes (spread across 20 solutions) and review all the changes before committing. Unfortunately when I open my Pending Changes Window in VS 2005 or my Team Explorer window in VS 2013 I am stuck with the out of the box Compare which is terrible with SSIS packages and is the reason I installed BIDS helper in the first place.

How can I review (compare) all of my changes easily without opening every solution in Visual Studio to use SmartDiff?

At the moment I don't think we have a good answer for this. We currently only hook in to the context menu for the solution explorer, so you have to have the project open to launch smart diff.

Thanks for the reply, I would love to see it in all the places the Compare is! Aside from this minor gap, SmartDiff has made this task much easier.
