Will Winmerge compare files of 150 to 200 pages in length

I have the free version of WinMerge, and when I tried to compare two files of about 200 pages (the font size is 12) I got blacked out panels and that strange dialogue box that says: "Server Busy", then says:

"This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy. Choose 'Switch To' to activate the busy program and correct the problem."

Switch To... Retry Cancel

I'm just wondering if there is a problem because I have the free version or is this a problem with the paid version also?
I did just read online, from a non-official source, that for files the limit is 500 MB and folders are unlimited. Both my files are about 22.5 MB.

Sorry for the bother. Have downloaded the xdocdiff WinMerge Plugin [url][]
Followed the instructions about installing, and also made sure the documents I wanted to compare were not open in Word, and all is good.
So, my 200 pages were comparable using WinMerge. Yea!
