Doesn't the green download button to the right of the "Buy RapidPro!" advertisement work for you?

Great that you support this effort. Can you put existing and future releases on your unofficial WinMerge releases page? I think it is good place as long as WinMerge 2011 isn't official, and I'd like to have one official place for unofficial releases. I'll update links in this topic to point to your page later on.

H2O/H2O2 isn't published elsewhere. Related files are in folder Src/Common.

I'm gathering ideas for that. But it won't happen very soon unless someone helps with it.

Well, that's my impression. I think Kimmo gave kind of a semi-definite answer to that question by confirming that he is not considering to restart maintenance of it. The focus is clearly on WinMerge 3.

It is not dead or alive by my "maintenance". It is dead or alive by people contributing i.e. doing the work. If there are interested people working on it, submitting patches and discussing about development then other maintenance happens too.

WinMerge 2.x situation is complex (IMO dead end for new development, for reasons discussed in other threads). WinMerge 3 was an effort trying to get WinMerge alive and active developed again. But not much has happened.

Thanks for WinMerge2011

I am using win7-64bit, and can't make the shell integration to work !

I have tried setting it by:

a. Checking the box of the 7z.exe installer
b. Checking respective shell intergration options from within Winmerge
c. Registry entries had refs to ShellExtensionU.dll so I have changed that to ShellExtensionX64.dll manually

At any of the above steps I couldn't get it to work.

Any clues of how to solve this ?

Not really. Unfortunately I have no way to debug 64 bit issues. Beware that there is different registry for 64 bit. If you see refs to ShellExtensionU.dll then you probably look at 32 bit registry.

http://www.tech-archive.net/Archive/Development/microsoft.public.win32.programmer.kernel/2008-10/msg00038.html might provide further insight.

Update
I have seen this work in a VirtualBox with Windows 7 Enterprise 90-day Trial 64-bit installed, after manually registering ShellExtensionX64.dll with regsvr32.exe. I have also learned that .hta files execute in 32-bit by default, which is why the setup.hta fails at this task.

Extensible "Compare As" menu

Postby jtuc » Tue Nov 01, 2011 11:26 am

The MediaInfo example is inspired by http://winmerge.org/support/3017974.

Menu extensions are configured the ini way:
Code: Select all
[Locale]
CodePage = 1252

[CompareAs.Menu]
MediaInfo = script:\FileTransforms\MediaInfo.wsc
Lines Sorted = script:\FileTransforms\LinesSorted.wsc


The MediaInfo.wsc looks like this:
Code: Select all
<scriptlet>

<implements type='automation'>
   <method name='OpenTextFile'/>
   <property name='ShowConsole'/>
</implements>

<script language='vbs'>
Option Explicit

Const ShowConsole = 0

Dim WshShell
Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

Function OpenTextFile(path)
   With WshShell.Exec("%SystemDrive%\MediaInfo\MediaInfo.exe """ & path & """")
      Set OpenTextFile = .StdOut
   End With
End Function
</script>
</scriptlet>

Scripts are not limited to invoking external tools, but can as well implement their own content processing logic.

Open dialog with "Compare As" option

Postby jtuc » Sun Nov 06, 2011 12:44 pm

New Compare As > Archive option also gives users explicit control on whether to treat a binary file as an archive.
