    5. In the 2-way Compare section, in the Location of Executable field, click Browse.
    6. Browse to the root directory of your Rational Rhapsody installation, for example, C:\IBM\Rhapsody, select the DiffMerge.exe file, and click Open.
    7. In the 2-Way Compare section, in the Local Compare Arguments field, enter the following text (include the quotation marks): "${file1Path}" "${file2Path}" -AliasLeft "${file1Title}" -AliasRight "${file2Title}"
    8. In the 2-Way Compare section, in the Remote Compare Arguments field, enter the following text (include the quotation marks):"${file1Path}" "${file2Path}" -AliasLeft "${file1Title}" -AliasRight "${file2Title}"
    9. In the 3-Way Conflict Compare section, fill in the Location of Executable field by pasting in the full path for DiffMerge.exe (same path that you used in the 2-way Compare section).
    10. In the 3-Way Conflict Compare section, in the Compare Arguments field, enter the following text (include the quotation marks): -xmerge "${file1Path}" "${file2Path}" -base "${ancestorFilePath}" -out "${mergeFilePath}" -AliasLeft "${file1Title}" -AliasRight "${file2Title}" -AliasBase "${ancestorFileTitle}"
    11. In the Auto-Resolve section, fill in the Location of Executable field by pasting in the full path for DiffMerge.exe (same path that you used in the 2-way Compare section).
    12. In the Auto-Resolve section, in the Auto-resolve Arguments field, enter the following text (include the quotation marks): -merge "${file1Path}" "${file2Path}" -base "${ancestorFilePath}" -out "${mergeFilePath}" -AliasLeft "${file1Title}" -AliasRight "${file2Title}"
    13. Click OK.
    Note: The settings for the diff tool to use are stored in a user's workspace, so each user will have to configure their Rational Team Concert client with these instructions.
