    Comparing ini files across multiple folders.

    I wanted to gather some information on which PC's have SIMS.net installed around the school in anticipation of replacing our sims server.

    I put this in the staff logon script:

    if exist "C:\Windows\sims.ini" mkdir \\servername\sharename\pcaudit\sims\%computername%
    if exist "C:\Windows\sims.ini" copy "C:\Windows\sims.ini" \\servername\sharename\pcaudit\sims\%computername% \sims.ini"
    if exist "C:\Program Files (x86)\SIMS\SIMS .net\connect.ini" copy "C:\Program Files (x86)\SIMS\SIMS .net\connect.ini" "\\servername\sharename\pcaudit\sims\%computername %\connect.ini"
    if exist "C:\Program Files\SIMS\SIMS .net\connect.ini" copy "C:\Program Files\SIMS\SIMS .net\connect.ini" "\\servername\sharename\pcaudit\sims\%computername %\connect.ini"

    I now have many subfolders under the \sims folder named as the various computers with sims on and in each folder are two files.

    Is there a non-manual way to compare these ini files ?

    Thanks.

    Depends what you actually want to compare. If it's just size vs size etc (which should show changes in settings, unless it's really small changes) you could just do a script to file compare.

    If it's line for line etc there are some programs that will do this like WinMerge
