  • Mass update of paths

    We recently moved some applications over to a new server, and now several of my folder compare paths are invalid. Is there a way to mass update these invalid paths?

    Hello,

    Editing multiple sessions at once is not supported in the graphical interface, but you could edit our BCSessions.xml directly. I suggest backing up our file first: use the Help menu -> Support dialog; Explore Settings folder link, and create a copy of BCSessions.xml. Then open and edit the paths with a Find/Replace, assuming it is a common change.

    How does this work for you?

      Perfect, that's just what I was looking for. I did back up the xml files as suggested, but for the benefit of others who might need to do this, I thought I'd post the path where I found the live files:

      %HomePath%\AppData\Roaming\Scooter Software\Beyond Compare 4

      Thanks again for the help!

        Thanks. Yes, the two locations are normally in AppData for a Normal install, or in the same directory if it is a Portable Install.

          Just FYI, %AppData% expands out to the equivalent of %HomePath%\AppData\Roaming, so "%AppData%\Scooter Software\Beyond Compare 4" works too.

            Good catch. I found that as well about 5 minutes after my last post
