Nitpick is a tool that helps to find such problems.
Environment: Stand-alone tool for use with Visual Studio resource files
Nitpick is a viewer for Windows dialog templates. It reads the dialog templates in a Windows resource (.rc) file and displays item outlines and item attributes. It can search the resource file for page names, item names, and item text. It can navigate from a displayed item to its defining entry in the resource file, and back. Nitpick can also perform a number of inspections intended to find common layout errors and problems.

Nitpick updated September 19th to address issues raised by three early users:
- Nitpick now accepts and displays generic CONTROLs, which is what the Visual Studio dialog editor creates for Active-X controls.
- Nitpick now accepts and displays COMBOBOXEX controls.
- If a file path is specified on Nitpick's invocation command line, Nitpick loads and displays the file when it starts.
