    Hello,

    I installed the trial of the latest version and found I could type into the dropdown:
    Code:
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Beyond Compare 3\BComp.exe" %1% %2%
    The %variables% already include quotes, according to the documentation, and I found that on a 64bit OS I needed to explicitly state that it was in the x86 version of Program Files. I also needed quotes around from C:\ to .exe.

    With this I could get Diffs working. Does your version support this?

    You guys should contact them making a request for them to add the preset for their Diff for BC3 and Merge for BC3 Pro.

    I just sent them an email about it as well.

    I updated our version control page with instructions for AccuRev.

    The instructions were tested as working with AccuRev 4.7.4.

    Default Win7

    I imagine some of your users are on Windows 7.

    You may wish to test these paths for Windows 7 and update your "Using Beyond Compare with Version Control Systems" page. Win7 has a slightly different path.

    Windows7 Diff: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Beyond Compare 3\BComp.exe" %1% %2%
    Windows7 Merge: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Beyond Compare 3\BComp.exe" %1% %2%

    The "C:\program files (x86)" is specific to 64-bit Windows, not to Windows 7. 32-bit Windows 7 still uses "c:\program files". I'll add a note to the version control page.

    I worked with the BC3 guys a year ago to put together the correct format for AccuRev to work with Beyond Compare 3. Here is the FAQ we have posted at our site:

    PROBLEM/ABSTRACT:
    AccuRev has several Diff/Merge tools that are listed by default in the dropdowns on the Diff/Merge tab. While it doesn't appear so, these are actually edit boxes. To change to a tool like Beyond Compare 3, please follow these guidelines.

    RESOLUTION:
    * Select Preferences from the Tools menu.
    * Switch to the Diff/Merge tab.
    * Diff: overwrite the preset with: "C:\Program Files\Beyond Compare 3\bcomp.exe" %1% %2% /lefttitle="%3%" /righttitle="%4%"
    * Merge (v3 Pro): overwrite the preset with: "C:\Program Files\Beyond Compare 3\bcomp.exe" %1% %2% %a% /mergeoutput=%o% /lefttitle="%4%" /righttitle="%5%" /centertitle="%3%"

    These settings can be extrapolated to other installed locations for your tool.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for posting the setup in detail, James.

    These steps should now match our posted instructions for AccuRev in the VCS KB article:
