Opening a ExamDiff with a hyperlink

Post by bdaoust » Tue Jul 12, 2011 6:16 am

I have an Excel spreadsheet which I would like it to contain hyperlinks that would open ExamDiff comparing two files.

Is this possible? A bonus would be that it would open the compare and save off the results. :?:

Thanks,
Brian

I'm not sure if Excel can launch external programs but if it can, there's nothing special about launching ExamDiff: you will simply have to pass two file paths and, possibly, options. However, ExamDiff can only display results; it cannot save to a file via command line (ExamDiff Pro can, and it can also generate HTML diff reports).
