RE: Error comparing files / Word 2013

I did some testing and found the reason:

The comparison script forces the files to open in Read-Only mode. Word 2013 no longer allows you to compare files that are Read-Only.

When I edited the script to tell it to open the files normally and I made sure that the temporary file for the old version was not marked Read-Only on disk, then the comparison worked.

I can find no documentation on whether this behavior is intentional or not on Microsoft's site. I may have a contact at Microsoft who I can ask.
