Tortoise SVN Settings for Beyond Compare 3

This is for future reference for me – for some reason this is a huge pain in the ass for me to find whenever I need it.

Here is the official documentation on how to integrate BC3 with TortoiseSVN.

Here are my settings (on 64 bit machine):

Diff Viewer

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Beyond Compare 3\BComp.exe" %base %mine /title1=%bname /title2=%yname /leftreadonly

Put the SAME THING for both “comparing different revisions of files” and “comparing different revisions of properties”.

Merge Tool

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Beyond Compare 3\BComp.exe" %mine %theirs %base %merged /title1=%yname /title2=%tname /title3=%bname /title4=%mname

    @A person: I don't see how this could work for anyone - the backslashes are missing in the path. I guess some dodgy blogging software has stripped them out. Anyway with the backslashes included it works for me - thanks :-)
