Winmerge 2.12.4.0 Unicode in Windows 7 does not update the file's 'Modified' date on either the local file or the compared server file. User has necessary access permissions to both files. Updating either file in Notepad/Notepad++ results in updated 'Modified' date.

    Steve,

    please check documentation "Options and configuration, 2. General page, 2.7. Preserve file time in file compare":

    Disabled (default): If you save changes to a file in WinMerge, the timestamp of the file is updated.

    Enabled: If you save changes to a file in WinMerge, the timestamp of the file is not changed in your file system.

    Perhaps you just checked this option?

    Regards
    Oliver
