I think what he means is that he wants to merge changes done on the
trunk to his branch. Yet he's running the App TortoiseMerge and
opening files.

I don't think he's even gotten to the point where he'll have conflicts
or not as he's never really doing a merge to begin with, he's just
opening the the files from the branch and trunk in TortoiseMerge.

Dan, if you want to merge changes from the trunk to your branch, the
correct thing to do would be to select the TortoiseSVN->Merge menu in
explorer for the file/folder you want to merge. You don't want to run
the TortoiseMerge app and open the files. TortoiseMerge app is
specifically for hand-merging when you have conflicts. Please read the
help on merging:
