  • "Fatal Scripting Error: Unable to create report" for large compares


    Hi Team,


    I ran extract comparison on a Folder which has 2 sub folders Extract1 and Extract2. Totally the 2 folders have 21023 files and 58 folders.




    The script ran for 18 hours, 49 minutes and then failed with error "Fatal Scripting Error: Unable to create report"




    The size of my generated report folder is:




    So things were in progress but ended with the error. Is it to do with time(around 19 hours) or scan size(14GB) being too big?

    Also when I run the same script for a smaller number of files I don't get the error and I got a great report too.

    Below are my windows details for reference:




    My Beyond Compare version details:



    Attaching my settings folder as requested and below are my script details:

    My Beyond Compare Script:

    option stop-on-error
    log verbose "%1"
    criteria rules-based timezone:ignore
    load "%2" "%3"
    expand all
    select all
    folder-report layout:side-by-side options:include-file-links title:"Extracts Compare HTML Report" output-to:"%4" output-options:html-color

    My Powershell Script:

    $BeyondCompareExeLoc = "C:\Program Files\Beyond Compare 4";
    $BeyondCompareScriptLoc = "C:\Users\nitin\Desktop\MyBeyondCompareScript" ;
    $LogFileNameLocation = "C:\Users\nitin\Desktop\Beyond Compare\Reports\Log.txt";
    $HtmlReportNameLocation = "C:\Users\nitin\Desktop\Beyond Compare\Reports\FolderReport.html";
    $LeftFolderNameLocation = "\\sharedfolder\Output\Extract1";
    $RightFolderNameLocation = " \\sharedfolder\Output\Extract2";
    cd $BeyondCompareExeLoc;
    .\BCompare.exe "@$BeyondCompareScriptLoc" "$LogFileNameLocation" "$LeftFolderNameLocation" "$RightFolderNameLocation" "$HtmlReportNameLocation" /closescript;


    Please let me know if you need any other details. Looking forward to hearing back from your team.

    You also corresponded with us about this issue by email, here's a copy of my email response:

    ​​​​​​Yes, this is probably too large for Beyond Compare to create an HTML report.

    Workarounds:
    1) Split the comparison/report up into smaller pieces.

    2) Output an HTML report, but don't use the 'include-file-links' option.

    folder-report layout:side-by-side title:"Extracts Compare HTML Report" output-to:"%4" output-options:html-color

    3) Output the report to plain text (.txt) instead of HTML.

    folder-report layout:side-by-side title:"Extracts Compare HTML Report" output-to:"%4"

    and in your powershell script:
    $HtmlReportNameLocation = "C:\Users\nverma\Desktop\Beyond Compare\Reports\FolderReport.txt";
