    James, any chance of releasing the source for your homebrew 3-way folder merge solution?

    FYI - UltraCompare has a 3-way compare mode... but not a 3-way merge. To understand the difference, see this prior post.

    Hello,

    Folder Merge is something we are working on, but we do not have a timeframe to offer at this time.

    Hello,

    You would need to make sure the "Merge" option is enabled in the Options dialog -> Start-up section. It is one of the disabled sections by default.

    Does Scooter plan to add this three-way folder merge feature to BC, and if so, do you have a timeframe for its availability? I have a need now and I'm a long-time BC user from version 1, but I'm trying UltraCompare to see how it does.

    Aaron, I tried your solution but "Merge" did not show up on the Explorer context menu. I tried selection files but it would only accept two files. Do I need to restart my computer for this to take effect? Thanks.

    Thanks for the submission of a one-click approach, darkfader.

    For other users interested in adding Text Merge to their right-click context menu, BC3 does offer built-in support under the Tools menu -> Options dialog, Startup, Explorer Integration section. Our built-in Merge support requires the user to select each of the 3 files individually or all at once for the Merge.

    Another solution

    Hi. I made a simple solution of my own before I saw this thread. It's a simple cmd-script that figures out the directory for the selected file and then invokes bcomp.exe.
    You need to change the left/right/center/output directory names in the script file. You can have multiple projects too.
    You can call the script from the explorer context-menu (which BC also has btw) for a file in one of the directories.

    in last versions, when bc3folders calls bcompare to compare files visually, it opens 2 panels; One panel is not appears. In old versions of bc 3 panels opened;

    This app still works with the most current Windows version of Beyond Compare. Note that, if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows, then you will need to update the BC3Path key in the BC3Folders.exe.config file.

    Now if it would just plug into Windows Explorer like Beyond Compare does for comparing two folders.....
