    Thanks for posting. I've got a few questions to help narrow down what might be going on:

    First, you will want to configure the command line to use BComp.exe instead of BCompare.exe.

    Does the Diff command work and call BC3 from AccuRev? If not, please try calling "C:\Program Files (x86)\Beyond Compare 3\BCompare.exe" from the Windows Command prompt; does this work?

    Do you have Beyond Compare 3 Pro? You can verify if you have Std or Pro in the Help menu -> About dialog of BC3. Pro is required for the Text Merge session type. You can trial Pro if you have Std, here:

      I'm seeing the same thing when using Merge. Diff works fine.

      To avoid the message, just don't say No when BC asks if you want to save the merged output. If you want to cancel the merge, AccuRev gives that opportunity after you tell BC Yes.

        I was finally able to setup a trial of AccuRev 5.7 with BC 3.3.5 and did not encounter this error when merging with BComp.exe. Has AccuRev since released an update that helped resolve this issue? I followed the same setup steps as listed on our website (link above) for Windows.

          Turns out it wasn't an issue after all for me. I was not doing any merges yet, only executing merge to get a look at the output. Once you close the output, if you don't do a save of the merge, AccuRev will report some sort of error message. It can be ignored - no harm done.

          After getting the chance to actually do some merges and save the results, it works perfectly - returns cleanly to AccuRev which then prompts me if I want to 'keep' my merged output.
