On my recommendation, a friend installed Pythonxy which includes Winmerge 2.12.4.2. He is a licensed Beyond Compare user and the Winmerge install overrode portions of the Beyond Compare install in the Registry so that Windows Explorer no longer recognized Beyond Compare in the right-click file management menu. The BC settings worked again after WinMerge was uninstalled and the computer rebooted.

Feature request that the installer detect an existing Beyond Compare installation and either allow both options to coexist in the Windows Explorer menu or to ask the user if they want WinMerge to replace BC as the default file comparison utility.
