    Default Add to PATH on install?

    Feature request: Have the installer add C:\Program Files\Beyond Compare to the path for the user or for all users, as appropriate. Calling bcomp from the command line is one of life's finer pleasures.

    Thanks.

    Kevin,

    Thanks for the suggestion. Adding Beyond Compare to the Windows path during installation is on our wish list for a future release.

    Please implement "add BC to path" as an option.

    Please make this optional. I don't want all my installed apps to add themselves to the PATH which I carefully maintain and want to be as lean as possible to avoid conflicts and slowness.

    Pete,

    Thanks for the suggestion. If we add it to BC's installer, we will probably add a check box, just like the option to include the Windows Explorer shell extension during installation.
