What are the best tools for analysing the widespread effects of changes to an asp.net application

Hi,

I have to analyse a large asp.net web app which has to undergo various changes. I am trying to establish the system wide effects of proposed changes and suggest the simplest work arounds.

Is there any analysis tools (free) that could lighten the load while doing this?

Visual Studio.

You open the solution, use the Find References tool  to find other code that is using the variable/function/class that you are looking at so it gives you a clue as to how much other code may need updating. You can also use the Search in Entire Solution feature to find wherever variables/properties/functions/classes are being used.

Hmm,

I made a subconscious assumption that other experts would understand since I am looking for a third party tool that I am fully aware of the potential of basic search facilities within the VS IDE. Nevertheless, thanks for your contribution and time, its much appreciated.
