  • git diff.tool script doesn't seem to work

    So I used the command line scripts to configure BC4 with git and received no errors, but when I run `git difftool myfile.txt` it prompts me to open bc4 and I say yes. But when BC4 opens, both sides of the diff are empty and no file names are in the file drop-downs. No errors.

    I'm testing in the following scenario:
    - Create a file; commit it
    - Modify the file; commit it
    - Attempt to compare the file `git difftool HEAD^ -- myfile.txt
    - `Launch 'bc4' [Y/n]: y
    - Beyond Compare opens, both sides are blank. no filenames loaded

    However, if I use TortoiseGit and right click the file and select "Diff with previous version", the Tortoise git diff tool comes up with a proper diff.

    Any ideas?

    It looks like Git support may have recently changed. If you follow our BC3 instructions, continue to use the "bc3" keyword, and give it the path to BC4, how does this work for you?

    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.
