Just checked - it's all there already... My fault for having so many context menu items installed that I couldn't see the tree for the forest... Or is that the forest for the trees? If a tree falls in a forest of context menu entries, does it make a noise?

Thanks - I added the options in submenu (originally they were in main menu) and now they appear. Maybe there is a conflict with BC2 in the explorer main menu options because before I shifted BC3 explorer options to a submenu they didn't appear at all ???

I should have mentioned that when I first tried the explorer integration BC2 started up, but I went into the options and fiddled around (turned them off then back on or something), then the explorer menus opened up BC3.

I suppose that the install doesn't override the existing shell registration (this might or might not be intentional or a bug), but hitting OK in the options dialog forces the issue.

After uninstalling BC2, a lot of files were still left behind. I dropped to a cmd.exe shell to delete them (can't delete files used by active shell extensions with explorer :)), and after I nuked those last traces, it was finally BC3 that was responsible for the "Select left file for compare" etc. shell context menus :Thmbsup:

Can anybody compare BC3 to any of the powerhouses in linux? For example meld. There are others doing 3-way comparisons too.

Glad to see the BC3 discussion and discount. BC has been high on my most-useful shortlist since version 1, and BC3 Pro adds so much to older versions that it's a no-brainer must-have, especially for file management, remote and local backup, and text/source management. I also use its data (e.g. CSV) comparison module, which lags significantly behind folder and text comparison in power and friendliness but is still invaluable at times.

I was on the fence about upgrading to v3 just for the in-pane editor (even if we are only talking $15).

But combine it with the DC discount and the resultant $9 upgrade fee somehow crosses that magical mental threshold from a discretionary purchase to a must have!  :)

Many thanks to Scooter Software and DC for putting this offer together.

I bought BC3 and had a couple of questions.
Scooter Software was pleasant and efficient in its responses.
