Title: Windows SE26 vsdiff does not work with start /wait
Post by: ebbe on November 09, 2021, 02:58:26 pm
Hi

I just discovered the hard way that the SE26 Windows version of vsdiff.exe returns immediately to the command line when called as follows:

Code: [Select]
start /wait vsdiff.exe
The Windows SE25 version of vsdiff.exe does not return until it is closed by the user - and this is the expected behavior.

I will be looking into this.

Sorry for the slow reply on this.  What I get isn't what I would expect, but I get the same in 25.0.2.

Have you tried running vsdiff.exe without start?  It should wait, and that is what I'm seeing 26.0.0.

The difference is V25, VSDiff.exe would launch VS.exe, and VSDiff.exe stays running.

In V26, VSDiff.exe launches VS.exe, then VSDiff.exe terminates right away - so there is no way for a script or anything to wait for the real VSDiff to end.

Clark fixed this for 26.0.1.
