This page explains how to configure Visual Studio Team System to use OOP-DIFF instead of the default merge tool. One of the OOP-DIFF External Diff tool buttons are configured to call the VS merge tool, so you can always revert to that when needed. Currently OOP-DIFF only supports *.vb, *.cs, *.txt so you will need to use another tool for other file types.

Click the Visual Studio menu: Tools / Options.

Expand the  Source Control nod

Select Visual Studio Team Foundation

Click Configure User Tools

VS options dialog

Select the compare operation list item and then click the Modify button.
