    Default Serena Dimensions 9.x supported?

    I have only been able to find PVCS 8.0 integration support with Beyond Compare. Has anyone implemented this integration with Serena Dimensions 9.x?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    We don't have PVCS ourselves, the version 8 integration was user contributed.

    If anyone out there does have PVCS 9 integration working and they would like to share their instructions, please send an email to support@scootersoftware.com and we'll add it to our version control instructions.

    I was playing around with it a little and i was able to get Beyond Compare to diff files but i was hoping to get it to work in place of the Dimensions Merge tool so that it would be able to compare Directories not just files.

    Please let me know if anyone has tested/implemented this.

    thank you

    This seems to be an old thread, but the problem is still valid to us :-)

    I just made a simple wrapper to see what Dimensions 9.1 gives when comparing 1) two versions, or a 2) version to a file:

    1) Command line:
    C:\Apps\Serena\ChangeMan\Dimensions\9.1\\prog\pvcs merge.exe -NoSplash C:\Temp\ptaa822.tmp

    And then in the ptaa822.tmp file:

    AUTOMERGE=ON
    TEMPDIR=C:\Temp\
    SHOWTARGET=OFF
    INTERACTIVE=BROWSE
    SHOWFRAMEANCESTOR=ON
    INCLUDEFRAMEANCESTOR=ON
    ANCESTOR="C:\Temp\ptaa820.tmp","C:\source\Foo.cpp; foo#11.16 - Ancestor"
    DERIVATIVES="C:\Temp\ptaa821.tmp","C:\source\Foo.c pp;foo#11.15 - Derivative"

    2) Command line:
    C:\Apps\Serena\ChangeMan\Dimensions\9.1\\prog\pvcs merge.exe -NoSplash C:\Temp\ptaa825.tmp

    And then in the ptaa825.tmp file:

    AUTOMERGE=ON
    TEMPDIR=C:\Temp\
    SHOWTARGET=OFF
    INTERACTIVE=BROWSE
    SHOWFRAMEANCESTOR=ON
    INCLUDEFRAMEANCESTOR=ON
    ANCESTOR="C:\Temp\ptaa823.tmp","C:\source\Foo.cpp; foo#11.16 - Ancestor"
    DERIVATIVES="C:\Temp\ptaa824.tmp","C:\source\Foo.c pp - Derivative"

    With this information, could it be possible to update the Dimensions 8.0 wrapper?

    Thanks for the post. I will contact the author of the PVCS wrapper to find out if he has an update.
