Visual Studio : Counting lines of code

Had a look at a vb application to get a feeling for how much work it would take to support it.

One of the measures of complexity is "lines of code" (LoC). Yes, I know it's a crap measure but it's better than nothing and a useful guide.

Mr. Google to the rescue and (no surprise), a good answer on Stackoverflow.

So downloaded the code from here and installed it.

Warning - I had to open and close the project a few times before I could get it to "take" but I got it working and I found that it was a really useful tool.

Hasn't been updated for ages so very much in the Visual Studio 2003 / 2005 era but luckily that was the ballpark I was in.
