Hello All,
I've written a simple standalone, that is, downloadable setup comparer program for
GPL that I would like to post here with SRMZ's OK. It is a zipped file of approximately 1.2MB.

An excerpt from the ReadMe:

I am a novice programmer and this program should be used with that in mind, no
warranty implied. However, the program does no writing to disk except to its own
ini file. You cannot update setups with this program. It's only capable of reading
the contents of your setups and doesn't try to differentiate mods, years, or
data validity but does verify that what it is reading is a GPL setup file.  

Installation:
To install it, unpack the zip file into a working folder, then copy that content
into a folder of your choice. There is an icon included to be used after you create
a shortcut to the .exe file. R-Click the shortcut, properties, then change icon to
SetUpComp.ico.

Read the full readme for a usage explanation before attempting to use it.

Thanks to Bob Simpson for trying it on his PC before I posted it here.

Waylon

This looks really great. How does it work?
Maybe post the readme?
Does it work on all/most OS?

John, I edited my original post with just a small excerpt from the ReadMe
        but enough so you can see what it does.  It is a JustBASIC windows
        program but I'm not sure if it will run on all variations of that. I run
        XP sp3 and have a Vista laptop that the smaller screened version
        works on.
