    Answer:

    Borland can recommend a tool called Compare it. This is available from

    http://www.grigsoft.com/wincmp3.htm.

    After downloading this tool, please open StarTeam and go to

    TOOLS | PERSONAL OPTIONS | FILE

    Click on Alternate Application and go to Comparison utility and browse to the compare it executable file and use this as tool to compare file contents.

    Note: This freeware tool has certain limitations, after 30 days you can not use the tool to directly edit files, but all other functionality is available after this period.

    This tool can be used to compare binary files using StarTeam 2005 and StarTeam 2005R2. However this will not be needed in StarTeam 2006 , due to the new enhancements made to the view/merge and compare tools available with this new release.To get a copy of StarTeam 2006 please go to http://www.borland.com/downloads/download_starteam.html
