Automaticaly opens new instance Visual Studio + Merge failt

Post by KetchupM » Wed 06 Oct 2010 11:26


I'm using the latest version 2.0.10.
When I try to merge in VS2008 from one branche to another , a new instance of VS2010 automatically opens to do the merge.

After merging, a messagebox with "Accept..." appears.
When I click OK (Yes), I have to specify where to save the file?

When I accept the default location and confirm to override the existing file, a messagebox is shown in VS2008: Operation canceled...

No merge action is done and I have to do it again? (and again, ...) :(

Merge settings:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Devart\CodeCompare\CodeMerge.exe
/TF=%1 /MF=%2 /RF=%4 /BF=%3 /TT=%6 /MT=%7 /SC=TFS

1. How can I prevent from opening automaticaly a new instance of VS2010
2. How to fix the merge problem???

The reason for opening another instance of Visual Studio is that the modal merge dialog prevents comparison activation.

We cannot reproduce the merge problem. Can you provide a detailed sequence of operations with a description of tools you use?
