oxygen.exe or diffFiles.exe parameters for file comparison

Wed Feb 21, 2018 4:15 pm

is it possible to set parameters to oxygen.exe (or oxygen.bat) or diffFiles.exe file, that will cause the same window with Diff Files program to open and show differences between two files?

I run diffFiles.exe from external application with path to compared files separated by space as a parameter (diffFiles.exe D:\test1.xml D:\test2.xml), which works fine. But each time I start this process, new instance of Diff Files application is created.

I want to find solution which works similar to oXygen Diff Directories: if I click on files to compare them, the same Diff Files' window receives focus and compared files are replaced by selected one.

Is this possible?

Thanks in advance

It is not possible to have a single instance for Diff Files or Diff Directories. We have an issue on our issue tracker regarding this. I will add your comment on the issue and I will increase its priority. We will notify you when this will be implemented.
