When using Winmerge it appears every file shows up as differ

Post by adamlevine » Wed Sep 05, 2018 1:55 am

I don't know how or why it's different now but running winmerge on the two files I now get 19 items including 12 folders with probably a hundred or so items inside each and 7 files like index.php, install.txt, ipn_main_handler.php etc etc that round out the main list. What do I do with that?

Does it behave different under windows? Also, how do you run winmerge on two files but the multiple different files?

I tested the original (non-forked) version 2.14.0 of WinMerge from WinMerge.

Tested with Wine 3.0.3-rc2. A 64-bit WINEPREFIX, left at the default: Windows 7 compatibility setting.

On my system I just had to add:

Code: Select all

winetricks vb6run
to get the application to work.

Are you actually comparing 2 files or really comparing 2 directories (with subdirectories enabled)?

I compared a few text files, no issues that I could see.
We'd need more information about what you are trying to do.

A Wine terminal log might also be useful. See: WineHQ FAQ: 10.1.1 How can I get a debugging log (a.k.a. terminal output)?
