My Code Compare is not working, no colouring, etc..

Post by warcious » Sun 15 Jan 2017 01:59

Hello Code Compare Forum,

My Code Compare stopped working and I do not know the reason why. The colouring is missing, and it is not comparing the code accurately. What could be the reason? I am attaching my screenshots.
What I do is I pick one of my files in my project and then compare it using code compare with a different file I have on my desktop before accepting the changes.

Your help is highly appreciated!

It seems that you replaced spaces with tabs, and all rows became different. To make Code Compare find matches, enable the Detect Similar Lines option.
