  • BCSessions file corrupted. Continue anyway?

    BC3 3.0.15 (build 9758)
    From Telelogic's Synergy I source compare a text file that has 2 parents so that bc will open 2 text file comparison windows (/solo), 1 for each difference. The second window,depending on the timing but most of the time, will display the error 'BCSessions file corrupted. Continue anyway?'. You can continue but previous versions of BC didn't do this and can be very annoying.

    How is your Synergy client configured? We have a KB article detailing the procedure, but it does not include the /solo command:
    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.

      The synergy client is configured as follows to switch between v2 & v3. This also allows both the classic client (ccm.ini) and developers interface ( to use the same settings.
      - ccm.ini: ccm4bc.bat %file1 %file2 "%file1_label" "%file2_label" %ancestor
      - ccm4bc.bat %file1 %file2 "%file1_label" "%file2_label"
      - ccm4bc.bat: "C:\Program Files\Beyond Compare 3\BCompare.exe" %1 %2 %5 /lefttitle=%3 /righttitle=%4 /solo

      BC3 also has the default setting for command-line option to include /solo

        Try changing your ccm4bc.bat to the following:
        "C:\Program Files\Beyond Compare 3\BComp.exe" %1 %2 %5 /lefttitle=%3 /righttitle=%4
