The developer of Text Compare assured me that:

"The program does not save settings to disk or registry.
It can be used portable from every location."

Slightly off-topic, I'm looking for a text compare app that doesn't require the files being saved first before being able to compare the differences.

This app and TextDiff (which is listed in TPFC) both do not handle this.

Any suggestions?

I don't like it. When start, it launch service Windows Presentation Foundation Font Cache 4.0.0.0 (WPFFontCahe_v0400.exe) which didn't stop after exit and need manual terminating. And it seems don't support Unicode in files. There are very good Compare plugin for Notepad++

You're right. It launches Windows Presentation Foundation Font Cache 4.0.0.0 and it doesn't terminate on exit of the program.

I submitted a bug report to the developer about the Windows Presentation Foundation Font Cache 4.0.0.0 process.

Thanks billon. Your discovery helped me improve my testing procedure under sandbox.

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.

Apparently, this service was not running (stopped) on my test machine.
