  • Using bcompare as git diff tool in cygwin

    Beyond Compare 4.1.9
    git version 2.16.2

    I updated my git config with the commands below.

    Code:
    git config --global diff.tool bc3
    git config --global difftool.bc3.trustExitCode true
    Code:
    git difftool -y HEAD~ HEAD test.c
    I get the following error.

    The diff tool bc3 is not available as 'bcompare'

    I found out the problem. I needed to set the config option below.

    Code:
    git config --global difftool.bc3.cmd ""c:/program files/beyond compare 4/bcomp.exe" "$LOCAL" "$REMOTE""

      Hello,

      Generally, the first documentation is what would work, but the method you are using is the older style used (manual definition):

      All BC 4.x updates are free for 4.x users. Also, depending on if you are using Git or GitHub can vary:
