Modify extension to use the Diff tool in Visual Studio rather than Visual Studio itself


Hello Hamid,

Have you looked at using the configurable user tools for your individual file comparisons?

"Tools -> Options -> Source Control -> Visual Studio Team Foundation Server -> Configure User Tools" allows you to specify 3rd party tools for compare and merge. Currently ShelvesetComparer only uses the built-in diff tool, but it would be great if it would leverage this setting so it worked with BeyondCompare and other tools.

Resolved with changeset 87388: Modified functionality to use the configured comparision tool (e.g. Beyond Compare) if it is configured by users.
