Bug: .... is not a file!

Post by Nick33 »

I'm trying to compare two html files and keep getting the following error messages logged (in C:\Users\websi\AppData\Local\Temp):
Document: "C:\Users\websi\OneDrive\Desktop\phpinfo.html" is not a file!
Document: "C:\Users\websi\OneDrive\Desktop\phpinfo local.html" is not a file!
Both files are valid: I can open them both in a text editor or a browser. They're both the same encoding.
I've just updated to v (64 bit)

Edit: just changed the files to .txt extension and ExamDiff now compares them successfully!

I suspect these files were not fully synced from One Drive to your local computer when you first attempted to compare them. ExamDiff Pro does not have any problem comparing HTML files. Try changing their extensions back to HTML and compare again.
