I downloaded this tool today, and started inspecting unused files in my project.
However, I think that this tool does case sensitive comparison. For example, if Logo.img file is referenced as logo.img file in some aspx page, then it identifies that as an unused image, which is not true.
Can anyone please suggest if this is a case-sensitive comparison?
Yes i think it's case sensitive.
I haven't opened the project in a while, but i'm migrating it to github now. Once migrations are done, i'll update the code to make sure/verify that you can also do case-insensitive comparisons.
What do you think is better ..just plain outright case-insensitive, or adding an option to chooses sensitivity type (not sure this is actually useful on windows though) ?
To build open the .sln in the root folder, it will load both the standalone and VS extension projects.
It's probably safer to only use VS 2013, and edit the "source.extension.vsixmanifest" by hand if needed.
It works theoretically with 2010, but the installer format has changed so much since 2010 i didn't bother making it compatible.
So there are 2 solutions..
1) Download the vsix (it's a zip file ^^), extract and modify the manifest files manually, and rezip
2) Use the command line version by adding it to "external tools"
Don't know about ultimate, sorry, there's no reason it shouldn't work in there ..if someone has an idea ?
Got it running in 2015 at home now. At work though it complains about .net framework version. Also wierd since it relies on 4.5, yet at work i'm already on 4.6
I am using Visual studio 2010 and is struggling to install your tool(FindUnusedFiles.vsix).
Could you please update the tool, so that it supports VS2010 as well, so life becomes much easier.
Appreciate for swift action.

Sorry to hear you are still stuck on 2010. Unfortubnately i neither have 2010 on my pc, nor have the intention of installing it. But last time i checked, the visix format 2010 uses is completely different from 2012 and up, so i never bothered with it.
It's however very easy to integrate standalone version with any ide including 2010. You can grab it here http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/555489/Find-Unused-Files-v
