I think it isn't a bug. As a .NET program, Text Compare likely uses Windows Presentation Foundation. Is makes sense that Windows Presentation Foundation Font Cache starts when a WPF program is launched.


You are correct. I received a reply from the developer who stated:

Quote:
The behavior is the way WPF is designed by Microsoft. Please can you look at the below link from MSDN. (bottom of the page)

<Link: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb613584.aspx> https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb613584.aspx

Please let me know if you have further question.

Kind regards,

Configure Font Cache Service to Reduce Start-up Time

The WPF Font Cache service shares font data between WPF applications. The first WPF application you run starts this service if the service is not already running. If you are using Windows Vista, you can set the "Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) Font Cache 3.0.0.0" service from "Manual" (the default) to "Automatic (Delayed Start)" to reduce the initial start-up time of WPF applications.

A new version of Text Compare- 1.0.2.2. Now it uses an INI file to save its settings.

Third naysayer vote.
I'd rather stick with good ole faithful TextDiff

from NaySayer to YeaSayer:

TextCompare 1.0.2.2 released 27-MAY-2015

With the addition of recent features
- command line support
- ini file to save settings
- window state retained in settings
- synchronized scrolling

and further considering TP109's above clarification about "Widows Presentation Foundation Cache" process,
and after testing afresh TC most recent version

I'm back in TextCompare "YeaSayer" camp... ;-)
(TC small 106KB footprint vs TextDiff 860KB is also a welcome bonus...)

Text Compare got a favourable review at Softpedia- it was awarded a rating of 4.0/5 by Alexandra Sava. Usually these reviews are shallow so I don't pay great attention to them.

No longer available from the original website. Their blog dated August 26, 2017 says:

The below listed tools are no longer available as download on this website.

AD BulkCreator
TextCompare
ComboBox ApplicationLauncher

As of today, all information about these 3 tools is also no longer available on this website.


It's still available from Softpedia, though: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Office-too ... pare.shtml

I wonder why they dropped association.

Thanks for pointing that out, olliebean. I updated the entry and messaged the author (edit: billon already took care of the edit).

He got back to me:

The tools combobox application launcher/textcompare are a sort of testapplications, and I think better quality alternatives are available for free.
Because of that I will not upload it to github. In the case of combobox application launcher I have some future idea's but I have to plan this to work on it.

The tool pinghurry is still available and will be updated when I have time for new features.
