  • Problem with BC4 and external conversion

    I have a VBScript File (*.vbs) in my Beyond Compare 4 install folder, that is used in for conversion in a self-defined file format.

    The "Conversion" tab for my file format looks as follows:
    - External program (Unicode filenames)
    - Loading: cmd /c DicomDump.vbs %s %t
    - Disable editing

    If I want to use my file format, I get a "Conversion Error".
    The reason is, that BC4 doesn't find my *.vbs file, although it is contained in my Beyond Compare 4 install folder.
    In Beyond Compare 3, exactly the same rule works as expected!!!

    Is there a way to make BC4 automatically find the *.vbs file, without specifying the full path to the script in the file format Dialog?

    The Helpers\ folder in BC3 was located in the Install directory, but this lead to difficulty installing plug-ins, since that would need Administrator Access for the Program Files default install directory.

    BC4 moved this location to the user's %AppData%\Scooter Software\Beyond Compare 4\Helpers\. If you place your file here, it should work with the relative path name Helpers\VBScript.vbs
