custom action doesn't work, but work with command line

I add a customer action to compare 2 commits with Beyond compare. it works in one PC with sourcetree version

Now I want to do same thing in my new PC with sourcetree version, The output is:

git difftool --dir-diff --tool=sourcetree 12a402ff418973ab64579a210f3b96fe446c1ca1 1e4888c75b58f4d7bc4d6fe3484426f40b99171f

Completed with errors, see above.

If I run same command in Terminal of sourcetree on this new PC, it works fine.

Compare single file with "External Diff" from GUI also works fine.

You need to change your parameters to the below to open the differences in beyond compare.

git difftool --dir-diff --tool=bc3 12a402ff418973ab64579a210f3b96fe446c1ca1 1e4888c75b58f4d7bc4d6fe3484426f40b99171f

If it doesn't work, try changing the script option as the full path
