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?


4 answers

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.
