    Hello raman,

    looking an the command line reference was a good starting point, but for generating reports in an automated way you should take a look at the Scripting Reference in the BC-Helpfile (F1) or in the online help ( ).

    Using a script you will no longer need that taskkill command.
    The command you should use for a file-compare-report is named "FILE-REPORT".

    Hope this helps ...

      Thanks, Christoph.

      More specifically, file-report is the script command to generate the auto-detected report (data if files open in the data-compare, text if in the text-compare, etc.) If you would like to force a specific report type, you'll want to use the specific command, such as data-report.

      The Help file also has a section "Using Beyond Compare" -> "Automating with Script" which you will probably find useful.
