Re: ExamDiff Pro 9.0 don't recognize changed files

I'm not sure that it's file timestamp. I suspect that it's MS Windows API mesasge WS_FILE_SYSTEM_CHANGED (or something like this) which is sent to all running Win32+ applications when something is written to disk (at least, to local disk), regardless of directory entry which holds timestamps.

Re: ExamDiff Pro 9.0 don't recognize changed files

Then you are lucky, because you get the correct picture at least after you re-compare. In my corporate network, even after recomparing several times, I sometimes still see the old picture, so I have to relaunch the viewing S/W (ExamDiff Pro in our case). This is probably because of some over-caching...

Re: ExamDiff Pro 9.0 don't recognize changed files

Could it be that at least one of the compared files (or both) is/are located on network drives?

Re: suppress merge window for 3-file diff?

OK, thanks for considering addition of 3 files comparison. But maybe it would be worth to mention that adding 3 files comparison will only align EDP with some competitors (from the point of view of this specific feature). However, N files comparison will put EDP in front of them. I did not perform m...

Re: suppress merge window for 3-file diff?

Hello. If I understand correctly, the original post was about just comparing three files, probably without any relation to a merge operation. If we look on it this way, then: - Maybe this has been already implemented? Taking into account that 3-way merge already exists, this seems to be pretty close...

And in addition, this forum is pre-moderated. So even in case of security breach into a regular user account, the potentially malicious post won't be published (and such dilution is actually happening).

"Ignore Linebreak styles" to custom toolbar

Hello. I would like to be able to toggle option "Ignore Linebreak styles" via customized toolbar. In my work I often have to compare files that came from Unix and Windows, and one of the main differences is line feed format. Currently I have to go to Options menu, then to "Text Compare" menu, then t...

Re: Comparing sensitive data

In case of working with sensitive data, users may concern about malicious restoring those temporary files after deletion. In such specific cases users may want to replace "deletion of temporary files on exit" by "wiping temporary files on exit", which means that the deletion will be preceded by over...

No, I was installing 32-bits installer in 32-bits Windows over 32-bits old version.

Installation directory is default instead of previous

Hello. Today I installed EDP Pro v6 over v4.5.2.2. My v4.5.2.2 was installed in D:\Program Files\... I downloaded v6 and launched the installer without uninstalling v4.5.2.2. I expected the installer of v6 to prompt me the old directory when I tried to install v6, but instead it suggested me to inst...

Re: Difference files have a space between each letter

Maybe the files are in Unicode? How do you know that these files actually don't have spaces?

Anyway, in the meantime ;-) I keep using

I use this and other methods of comparing. But "modern" people want something like EDP.

Re: Pure binary comparison (byte by byte). All bytes

Colleague just asked me to show difference in binary files (using simple byte-to-byte view), and appeared that I still can't do it in ExamDiff Pro v4.5. I voted for it in wish list, but this fact did not help my colleague. Is it implemented in v5 (I don't have it yet)? Or is it going to be implement...
