Luckily the NTFS file system can cope with tens of millions of files on a volume reasonably well, so 10k shouldn't be too much of an issue for it. smile

Thump

"file:///C:/Windows/winsxs/"

or whatever the path is into your browser. Then right click, view source and you might have the number of lines. If not, paste the source to a text editor with line numbers.

Yes it's that simple. tongue

I just dropped thew text (without the leading"1 " into the URL box in Firefox and upcame the listing. View Source then showed me the raw lines and line count.

Mind you the line count is just 3 more than the number of filers in WINSXS, these seem to just be the three 'housekeeping' lines.

OIC. So the word "browser" in OP needs to be replaced by"FF" as following YOUR v. clear instructions does not work in IE.

Looks like it. In IE dropping
file:///C:/Windows/winsxs/
into the URL opens a Windows Explorer window showing WINSXS, exactly the same as opening it directly in Windows Explorer.

As it doesn't open it in the actual browser window, the view source feature doesn't help.

Sorry my bad

Yes you are right It appears the

does indeed fail to work with IE: I originaly tested using SnWare Iron which is a Chrome based browser but FF or other suitable browser should suffice
