40% discount on Beyond Compare
Well done!

I hope it works out to everyone's satisfaction, users and vendor.

It's not something I really need but at that price I'll buy a copy anyway.
I'm happy and the vendor has a modest sale that might have been a zero.
If enough people climb aboard...

Again, thanks for your effort.

This is good. :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

I'll download it now to see if I'll use it.

Our massive review of version 2 is here: http://www.donationc...pareTools/index.html

I'm a *HUGE* fan of BeyondCompare -- i use it constantly, and LOVE it.

Also: Everyone should try the free open source WinMerge and (if you have lots of bucks) Araxis Merge, the other two main competitors mentioned in that review.

I recently upgraded from BC2 to BC3 standard. I have sent them an email asking if I can use the DC discount and I will then upgrade from standard to professional.

Any chance the DC discount can be used together with the upgrade discount?

Not that it'll affect my decision to buy, but the version I want (dual-system pro) is so expensive that every bit of discount helps.

My guess is that you can use either the upgrade discount or the DC discount, but not both.  I'll verify with Scooter Software.

Just applied the upgrade and DC discounts to the Pro version and it worked fine. Both discounts are listed on the receipt. Great.

Hey - thanks to Carl for arranging the discount, to mwang for suggesting that both discounts might be stackable and Carol for verifying that!

An upgrade to BC3 Pro for $21 is a nice deal.

A HUGE Thank You to Scooter who gave me a super extra special Codyrific deal to upgrade my upgrade from Standard to Professional.  :Thmbsup: I look forward to trying out BC3 Pro's 3-way merge capabilities.

Can you use BC2 sessions in BC3 or will I lose my sessions?
4) BC2 sessions and most settings can be imported into BC3.

to specify:
BC3 doesn't "replace" BC2, because BC3 installs to \Beyond Compare 3\
so you will just have to export from BC2, when BC3 is installed.

Hm, with the discount, pro version seems to be quite managable fund-wise... might just go for it, 3-way merge sounds like a cute thing to have when there's multiple developers on a project.

Well, I bought BC3 using the discount.

Why wouldn't I follow the recommendations of the smart people here?

FWIW, I'm more than pleased and I've barely scratched the surface of it.

So, thanks for the comments and for the discount  :Thmbsup:

I still have version 2 installed. Anyone know if there is a plugin for version 3 to add the same shell features as version 2 ?

I was wondering much the same thing... I unintalled v.2 before upgrading and expected the shell features to be installed. Nope, and I can't find an option anywhere, either! So, er, I'd be interested in the answer as well...

i know the betas of beyond compare 3 had shell extension context menu just like v2 (even on winx64!) so maybe its just in options somewhere.. or am i not understanding what you are asking for.

Hm, I registered+installed BC3, but the shell extensions are for BC2. Both in 64bit explorer and 32bit explorer^2... going to uninstall BC2 and have a look-see if this can be fixed.

Are you talking about the explorer context menu getting the "Select left side to compare..." and "Compare to xyz" items?

If so, go in the BC3 Options panel in the Startup category.  There's an "Explorer integration" area in the bottom half.
