So, I setup a new VPC with Vista SP2 and installed Visual Studio 2008 (with SP1). I wanted to install a Subversion client, more specifically Visual SVN, which usually requires a base Subversion library. In my case, I needed to install Tortoise SVN.

Searching LDAP on Windows Server

I needed to search Active Directory on one of our Windows Servers today and couldn’t remember the application used to do the searching. One of my team members reminded me about LDP.exe.
