    Default BC3 Explorer Context - readonly option?

    I've been using BC 2 for some time, and finally secured the budget to upgrade to 3. However, I really need to have the File Explorer Context comparisons be READ ONLY. In BC2, it was adding a context flag in the settings. In BC3, I can't seem to find an equivalent setting.

    I need to de-fang the explorer context menu option in order to prevent serious injury (or retrain a boatload of people).

    I couldn't find anything relevant in the help files, nor in searching the forums.

    Hopefully, it's simple. If it is, I apologize in advance!

    Hello,

    The Command line switches option is in our BC3 Tweaks dialog. Launch BC3, then go to Tweaks (Ctrl+Shift+T) and add "/ro" to the command line switches to prevent any kind of editing.

    This is stored in the Registry in HKEY_Current_User\Software\Scooter Software\Beyond Compare 3\BcShellEx\Switches.
