  • Powershell

    Hi, i'm pretty new to powershell, let's say intermediary.
    I have a list of directories in wich i have to compare 2 folders daily.
    This list will become longer every day, so i'm trying to find a way to, in a first time, open all those ''2 subfolders'' using BC, but with a powershell script.

    In resume, when actionning this script, it will open and lunch the compare for all those ''2 subfolders'' of my list of directories.

    For the moment, i dont want it to extract the differences, this will come in a next phase, if i can create something for my first need before.
    Thank for you help!

    Did you need to launch the graphical interface on these two folders so you can review and perform manual actions? That would be with the command line:
    C:\Program Files\Beyond Compare 4\bcompare.exe "c:\folder1" "c:\folder2"

    Or did you want to generate a report, as part of an automation?
    bcompare.exe "@c:\bcscript.txt" "c:\folder1" "c:\folder2" "c:\reports\bcreport.html"

    where bcscript can contain some automated instructions, such as
    folder-report layout:side-by-side output-to:"%3" output-options:html-color "%1" "%2"
