First of all please don't even think about sending a 224MB file to a
public mailing list.

Secondly I think you misunderstand Stefan. He is not offering to do
the merge for you. The only tools that can merge TestComplete files is
TestComplete itself as nothing else will understand the file format.
So you have to work out how to do the merge. Maybe you could try
contacting TestComplete support as it is a commercial product, or
maybe they have a forum?

What Stefan is offering, once you have worked out how to do the merge,
is the ability to link that back into TortoiseSVN to mark files as
resolved or conflicted depending on the merge result.

Also, please don't top-post. It makes it much harder to follow the
flow of the conversation.
