Folder history + Windiff = file not found

Post by Tri » Fri Jan 21, 2005 11:45 am

An user configures client 2.06 to use WinDiff instead of the default diff tool. He wants to Diff versions of the same file listed in the History Explorer. He has reported this error:

1- Works OK if Diff is done on the history of the individual file.

2- Error (file version X not found), if Diff is selected from the history of the folder. With the default Diff tool, this error doesn't show up.

Can you please confirm and possibly help us to fix the issue.

I believe this was a bug that was fixed in the 3.0 version of Vault, and unfortunately, there isn't a work-around in the 2.0.x versions. If the file had only the filename listed and no path, that was the cause, and it would fail to diff the selected version of the file.
