Integrating DiffDog with SmartSVN

If you are using SmartSVN ( as Subversion client, you can add DiffDog as file comparison tool, in addition to the built-in comparison tool. The configuration instructions below apply for SmartSVN 8.5, but they are likely to be similar for other versions.



To set DiffDog as the comparison tool:

1.Run SmartSVN.
2.On the Edit menu, click Preferences.
3.Under Tools, click File Compare.
4.Click Add, and select External diff tool.
5.Next to File Pattern, enter a pattern that matches file types that you wish to compare with DiffDog, for example *.xml.
6.Next to Command, enter the path to the DiffDog executable, for example C:/Program Files/Altova/DiffDog2019/DiffDog.exe.


Note:If you are using DiffDog 32-bit on a 64-bit operating system, adjust the path so that it points to C:/Program Files (x86) instead of C:/Program Files.


7.Next to Arguments, enter ${leftFile} ${rightFile}.
