Use Beyond Compare as the external difference utility

Hi all,

Any idea of whether it is possible to use Beyond Compare v2 as the external difference utility in Source Tree?

It's possible ... (SRCTREE-WIN)

Within SourceTree - open Menu Tools->Options ... under Tab "Diff" select "Beyond Compare" as "External Diff Tool"

To use it, select the external diff -Button ...

At least it was possible as I configured it (prae 1.3. Version) - haven't verified configuration on latest SRCTree

Does this work with beyond compare v2? (I don't have BC v2, and don't want to hose my BC 4 config, so can't test).

I currently use BC3 ... not tested with BC4beta

I'm using SourceTree v1.6.3.0 and BeyondCompare 4.0 Beta build 18746. Selecting "Beyond Compare" as the option for Diff | External Diff Tool in SourceTree works correctly with BC 4 Beta.
