    Hello,

    Our recommended setup for Git for Windows is here:
    http://www.scootersoftware.com/suppo...vcs#gitwindows

    Git uses a keyword "bc3" (even for bc4) that detects and builds in support for BC4. If you switch to "bc3" and restart (to be sure the new settings are applied), I'd expect commands like difftool to begin working.

    I tried to respond to a relevant thread about this subject but it doesn't look like I'm able to post there. I can use BC4 as a mergetool but not the difftool

    To give you all relevant information

    Downloaded and installed from https://git-scm.com/downloads
    using Git Bash exclusively, but when installed did the second option (install git for windows command line) if that matters.
    In windows 10 64 pro

    when running "git difftool file" it shows the default output of git diff (all in bash). there is no error. When running "git mergetool file" beyond compare launches as it should. Below is my setup.

    $ git --version
    git version 2.12.0.windows.1

    [merge]
    tool = bc
    [mergetool "bc"]
    path = c:/program files/beyond compare 4/bcomp.exe
    [diff]
    tool = bc
    [difftool "bc"]
    path = c:/program files/beyond compare 4/bcomp.exe


    The only other additional thing being used is git LFS.
Working...
