  • difference between Standard and Pro

    Firstly, excellent software; very well thought out. I want to purchase BC3 as i'm not to fond of BC4's overly simplified interface. But i still can't decide if i should get the Pro or Standard version. I think i tried BC3 with the "Evaluate Pro Edition features" option ticked so i don't know if i'll be missing anything or not if i just buy the Standard version.

    Thanks. I'd like to follow up with why you might prefer BC3 to 4, but first we'll answer your question. Here is a list of our big Pro only features:
    Beyond Compare is a multi-platform utility that combines directory compare and file compare functions in one package. Use it to manage source code, keep directories in sync, compare program output, etc.

    Are you out of trial time for BC3? BC4's trial might still have time available; they have independent counters and only count down days you actually boot the application.

    BC4's interface has a few options removed by default, but they are still present and can be re-enabled. Would you be referring to any missing toolbar commands (Options dialog, Toolbars/Etc, then search and add back to Toolbar)? By and large, BC4 has the entire BC3 feature set plus many more additional features, and is generally the program we'd recommend. Are there specific features or design that are preventing you from preferring BC4? We'd be grateful for the feedback.

      Greetings. I have just successfully bought and activated BC3. I know BC4 is superior to BC3 but i always follow the rule of "if it works don't fix it or change it". I don't mind having to upgrade to BC4 again in the near future; even if it's tomorrow. This software is well worth the cost. Don't feel bad when you make software so flawless/reliable that users don't even have to want to upgrade

        Ok. If you need help configuring BC4's commands/interface to match BC3's, just shoot us an email at [email protected] or post in the forum. If you find any functionality you find may be missing, let us know and we'll help you get BC4 configured to match.
