Doesn't seem to do anything??

I've tried WinMergeFS on both Server 2K8 64-bit and Windows 7 64-bit, and have had no luck so far.


I've manually installed the 64-bit version of Dokan successfully, and then installed WinMergeFS.  My German is not very good but everything appeared to work properly :)


Running it does not appear to have any effect whatsoever (even if I run it from an elevated command prompt).  My command line and debug log file look like this:

WinMergeFS.exe -manual -driveletter n -volumeid WinMergeFS -roots C:\Install::C:\buildtmp -plugins diskspace,100,0 -logfile WinMergeFS.log -loglevel debug


INFO: Profile summary:

What could I be doing wrong?  Help!  (For what it's worth, if we can make this go... THANK YOU, this will be a lifesaver!)

sorry it took so long to answer. Been quite busy lately and haven't checked for any posts here.

I recently installed Windows 7 64bit myself and as you stated it did indeed - nothing - .

I tried some different compilation options now and now it should work.
New release can be found here:

Let me know if does for you, too.
