  • disable Auto-Start / Auto-Start only with cmdline parameter?

    I would like Beyond Compare to

    1.) disable auto-start (but load last directories into the entry fields ready to refresh

    2.) I want to auto-start folder comparison but only if I pass a session name through cmdline parameter e.g.

    bcompare.exe ->autostartsession=mylogarchive

    How can I achieve these scenarios in detail?

    Thank you
    Peter

    Hello,

    By auto-start, I assume you are referring to automatically starting the scan as set in the Session Settings, correct?

    You can disable this in the default session settings on the Home scree -> Edit session defaults, and in the Handling tab disable: Automatically scan subfolders in background or disable the comparisons in the Comparison tab.

    When you save a session, be sure to re-enable the Scan options and Comparison options you want to use. Loading that session by name will then have that behavior saved.
