Check the settings for the diff tool:
Settings dialog->External Programs->Diff Viewer
If you don't have it set to "TortoiseMerge" but "External", make sure
it's configured correctly. Also click the "Advanced..." button and check
the diff tools for specific file extensions (you can try "Restore
defaults" there).

If that doesn't help:
* what file type did you run the "diff with previous version"?
* file or folder?
* does the file/folder even have a previous version?
