Description (last modified by Christopher Lenz)

I have installed the gnu diff tools, version - 2.8.1-3 I have apache 2.0.49 windows xp all the latest patches etc. I have the added the location of the diff tools installation to the path variable Diff tools works fine from the command line. svn diff works fine from the command line (as well as from tortoise svn)

Eveything seems to running just fine with trac, except for the diff view. This is probably just a config error, but I've looked at the mailing list and faq and tried all the suggested fixes. So I'll risk getting flamed, as long as someone sends me fix for the issue.

I had this, or similar, problem, until I used the printenv.pl cgi-example and noticed that the PATH variable hadn't been updated in apache, so trac couln't find diff.exe. Restart of the apache service didn't help. Had to reboot to get apache to notice that PATH had changed.

No risk for flamage. :)

I'm however unable to reproduce this on ms windows. Let me know if you got it working and found the problem. :-)

I'm having this same problem. When I run Apache from the command line, it locates diff.exe fine. When I run it as a service, it has trouble. I've tried copying diff.exe into the apache bin and modules directory, no luck. Any ideas?
