Hello I am trying to get Meld to work as the external merge tool on a Windows system. I was using p4Merge but personally do not like it as much as Meld. However when I try to launch the external merge tool the Meld external gui will not come up. It seems like it is trying to work because I can see the BASE/BACKUP/LOCAL/REMOTE file backups get created in my directory. Any idea why the gui will not actually come up?
I have Merge Tool: Custom
Diff Command: c:\Program Files\Meld\meld\meld.exe
Arguments: $LOCAL $REMOTE $MERGED
If I go to command prompt and go to the path of Meld which is in the Diff command above and type meld "filelocation1" "filelocation2" "filelocation3" It works just fine.
Try adding the location of meld.exe to your PATH (e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Meld), then in Diff Command just enter meld instead of the full path. See here: https://gist.github.com/chinhodado/6fc37def3e12ea09f785
It works for me.
