Explorer Context Menu Changed? (Compare To..)

Postby RufusVS » Tue Jan 06, 2009 4:17 pm

I noticed when I upgraded Winmerge, when right-click a file
my explorer context menu changed from the two entries:

Compare To..
Compare

To a single entry:

Winmerge

Which made it impossible for me to run a cross-window compare any more. :o :evil:
(I used to be able to select file1 with Compare To... and select file2 wth Compare,
even in a different window )

Have we lost this functionality? or am I setting it up wrong? or is there a different method
to selecting files from two different explorer windows and comparing them? :?:

Thanks.

Never Mind, found it! (Context Menu Change)

Found out how to get that behavior back. I knew it had to still be in there.

Searching through archives I discovered it had to be enabled via:

Edit/Options/System/Integration (Add to ...menu) (Enable advanced menu)

Sorry about that. :oops:

Good that you found the solution!

I'm wondering why that option got disabled.. From which version to which version did you upgrade?
