    I worked with the BC3 guys a year ago to put together the correct format for AccuRev to work with Beyond Compare 3. Here is the FAQ we have posted at our site:

    PROBLEM/ABSTRACT:
    AccuRev has several Diff/Merge tools that are listed by default in the dropdowns on the Diff/Merge tab. While it doesn't appear so, these are actually edit boxes. To change to a tool like Beyond Compare 3, please follow these guidelines.

    RESOLUTION:
    * Select Preferences from the Tools menu.
    * Switch to the Diff/Merge tab.
    * Diff: overwrite the preset with: "C:\Program Files\Beyond Compare 3\bcomp.exe" %1% %2% /lefttitle="%3%" /righttitle="%4%"
    * Merge (v3 Pro): overwrite the preset with: "C:\Program Files\Beyond Compare 3\bcomp.exe" %1% %2% %a% /mergeoutput=%o% /lefttitle="%4%" /righttitle="%5%" /centertitle="%3%"

    These settings can be extrapolated to other installed locations for your tool.

    Thanks,

      Thanks for posting the setup in detail, James.

      These steps should now match our posted instructions for AccuRev in the VCS KB article:
