Hello,

Is folder diff options are available only for registered customers?
I am trying to diff folders using command line
sgdm -d=D:\Result.txt "D:\Temp\Folder1" "D:\Temp\Folder2" , it returns the Exit status is 0 even though there are diff files in each folder.

Thanks in advance!

The DiffMerge tool is fully functional even if not registered. I tested with a couple folders here as well just to make sure it's working properly.

What happens if you diff two other folders?

Try changing directories to D:\temp, and put the result file there as well, and then use the full path to sgdm. It would look like:

"C:\Program Files\SourceGear\Common\DiffMerge\sgdm.exe" -d=Result.txt Folder1 Folder2

Does that work?

Thanks Beth, Does the folder search supports any file format ? Does it have the ability to identify dlls too ?

I think it should work for any file format on the Folder Diff. It won't for the file diff, because the file diff can't deal with binary files, but at the folder level it should be fine.

Thanks Beth for the prompt reply.

Let us sat Folder A : D:\Temp1\Test1\Helloworld.dll
Folder B : D\Temp1\Test1\hollaworld.dll

diff is not outputting the dll , It was able handle .txt files

File only in left:
Doesn't give the Helloworld.dll

Then it's probably in the filter list for folders. Go to Tools - Options - Folder Windows - Folder Filters. You can remove the DLL from the file suffix filters.

I don't think so. I think you'll need to run the program to change the settings, and then the settings will be saved for future Diffs.
