+h3I get exitcode 2 from diff3 on Windows a name=diff3-diff/a/h3
+
+p
+This happens when you diff utilities are not installed on the C: drive.
br
+For example: br
+your diff utilities are in D:/cygwin/bin. The work around is:
+/p
+pre
+mkdir -p C:/cygwin/bin
+cp D:/cygwin/bin/diff*.exe C:/cygwin/bin
+/pre
+p
+Despite the Registry and/or the config file showing the D: drive,
+when diff3.exe tries to launch diff.exe the drive letter is ignored, and C:
(the system drive) is used.
