When you work on a project with similar files, visually inspecting the files to locate the differences can be difficult. Use the NI Compare Tool to compare the files and quickly locate different content.

Complete the following steps to select two files to compare with the NI Compare Tool:

  1. Ensure you have a project open and locate two files you want to compare on the Project Files tab. You can compare files with the .gvi, .gmrd, or .gcdl extension.
