Seems that external diff launch doesn't work on 3.08, is it a bug?


I have just updated my SourceTree (Windows) to 3.08 and if I set my cursor on a file (in Log/History tab) and press Control + D for launching the external diff tool it seems that is not launched correctly.
It sounds like a bug, but probably I am performing some wrong operation. Could you verify?

On the release it run.

Thanks and best regards

This seems to be working for me, trying KDiff and System Default options, using semanticmerge, are you using custom seettings?

Hi Michael,

thank you for your answer.

I have deleted the "app-3.0.6" folder installed during the previous update and now the 3.0.8 version works correctly. I use WinMerge with the default settings.

Thank you again for your prompt answer and best regards.
