Summary0000697: Cannot use PMDiff as an external diff program with svn 1.7.21 (2015-08-10)
DescriptionCannot run PMDiff as an external 'svn diff' program. kdiff3 works.
Steps To ReproduceLocal svn server (svn://localhost). The file ASSOEDIT.TXT is in the working copy and has been modified.
Running
[d:\prevas\testsvnmapp]svn diff ASSOEDIT.TXT --diff-cmd D:/util/pmdiff/pmdiff.exe
Index: ASSOEDIT.TXT
===================================================================
svn: E000010: Error waiting for process 'D:/util/pmdiff/pmdiff.exe': No children

PMDiff never starts. kdiff3 will start properly:
[d:\prevas\testsvnmapp]svn diff ASSOEDIT.TXT --diff-cmd d:/apps/kdiff3/kdiff3.exe
Index: ASSOEDIT.TXT
===================================================================
svn: E000010: Error waiting for process 'd:/apps/kdiff3/kdiff3.exe': No children

The message is the same but kdiff3 starts and displays the files. Neither program is in the PATH, and both run perfectly from the command line. The error is in itself not severe since I have an alternative, but it could indicate some other problem.
Additional InformationI will gladly run any test you require.
