After update i cannot run idea as external diff tool.

Answered

Hi, i've use IntelliJ IDEA 13.1.4 as diff tool for svn, all setup made follow that tutorial: www.jetbrains.com/help/idea/2016.2/running-intellij-idea-as-a-diff-or-merge-command-line-tool.html

For now i update my IDE to latest version IntelliJ IDEA 2016.2.4 and all broke up.

I work on win7, i update environment variable (add to PATH — C:\Program Files (x86)\JetBrains\IntelliJ IDEA 2016.2.4\bin and remove old one), but when i execute my wrapper script nothing happens, when i change environment variable back to old version, all works fine.

 

Can you suggest me how to solve it? Thank you.

Can you provide the full example of the command line you are using to show diff?

Sure, here it is:

idea merge D:\trunk\scaleform\as3\gui_lobby\src\main\as3\net\wg\gui\lobby\battleResults\data\BattleResultsVO.as.mine D:\trunk\scaleform\as3\gui_lobby\src\main\as3\net\wg\gui\lobby\battleResults\data\BattleResultsVO.as.r738494 D:\trunk\scaleform\as3\gui_lobby\src\main\as3\net\wg\gui\lobby\battleResults\data\BattleResultsVO.as.r737474

Do you run IDEA with idea.exe or idea64.exe? Are there any errors in idea.log (https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/articles/207241085)?

Probably there is some other idea binary in your PATH that is called instead.

No, there is only one path to idea binaries, but i call x86 binary instead of x64, when i change it, all works fine.
