How do I configure Beyond Compare 2 (BC2.exe) for External Diff?

I tried using the advice from here, but there's no Windows command line I can use.

For SourceTree it says this:


From the Beyond Compare menu, Install Command Line Tools.  Then:
Visual Diff Tool: Other
Diff Command:/usr/local/bin/bcomp
Parameters:-ro $LOCAL $REMOTE
Merge Tool: Other
Merge Command:/usr/local/bin/bcomp


I also tried to use as the Diff Command "C:\Program Files\Beyond Compare 2\BC2.exe" (with double quotes), but I am not getting Beyond Compare 2 to launch to show the comparison.

Does the Toos > Option > Diff work for you?
