  • Tortoise svn failing to diff

    I configured tortoise svn to work with BC4 and since then it gives me the error "Could not start external diff program"
    I applied the next configuration to tortoise


    Select Settings from Explorer's TortoiseSVN submenu.
    Switch to the Diff Viewer tab.
    Change the radio buttons from TortoiseMerge to External.
    In the path edits, enter:
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Beyond Compare 4\BComp.exe" %base %mine /title1=%bname /title2=%yname /leftreadonly

    To use Beyond Compare for image comparisons either replace the file C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin\TortoiseIDiff.exe with a copy of BComp.exe, or click the Advanced button on the Diff Viewer tab and add each image type's extension with the same command line as above.

    And this

    2-way Merge
    Use the same steps as above, but use the command line:
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Beyond Compare 4\BComp.exe" %mine %theirs /savetarget=%merged

    Someone can help me configuring this?

    Thank you

    It looks like you are missing the first quote "character in the file path. If you add this, does it get this diff working for you?
