hi guys,

Did anybody encounter this?

I'm testing Winmerge 2.14.0 on Windows 10 64bits
Plain text Notepad Diff compare works fine, but comparison of MS Word .docx or adobe .pdf files displays weird characters

All the discussions point to

I downloaded both plugins :
7-Zip Plugin
xdocdiff Plugin

Followed the instructions at: ... index.html

Before installing:
Install WinMerge
Select [Plugins]-[Automatic Unpacking].

1. Unzip file.
2. Copy xdoc2txt.exe and zlib.dll to WinMerge program folder. (Where WinMerge.exe is located)
3. Copy amb_xdocdiffPlugin.dll "from" sub folder "MergePlugins".

Restarted the computer
Still displaying these weird characters... is there anything else i should try?

If you know of any solution please let me know.
