  • Don't want 3way merge

    when i run "C:\Program Files (x86)\Beyond Compare 4\BCompare.exe" "..." "..."
    bcompare opens a 3 way merge session with the central folder "error opening folder"
    is there some work around so i can get a simple - 2way - folder compare session to open instead?

    Are you using the exact text "..." or a specific folder path?

    The most likely scenario is you need to include "quotes" around each folder path. Any spaces in the folder path would be delimiters otherwise.
    If literally "...", this type of text is literally passed into the folder path and would be invalid.

      Hello And thank you for your great software!
      no actually it's a regular path in between does quotation marks, which i circumvented thinking it would be irrelevant but i'll paste you the exact code snippet i'm calling with my bat script

      "C:\Program Files (x86)\Beyond Compare 4\BCompare.exe" "C:\Music\dupes\C Users Christoffer Ddrive Music slsk c - 2003 - in stahlgewittern (5cd) (192) c - 2003 - in stahlgewittern (cd1) (192)" "C:\Music\dupes\C Users Christoffer Ddrive Music slsk Various Artists - in stahlgewittern #3 [2003] stahlgewittern i+ii - 5cd"

        Are you also able to copy/paste that path into Windows Explorer? You should be able to use any path that loads fine in Explorer also in the graphical interface's base folder, and then also on the command line if you have "quotes" around each path.
