Configure SVN to use xlCompare as a Difference Viewer application

SVN is one of the common tools for version control. You can configure it's client application - Tortoise SVN to use xlCompare as a difference viewer for Excel workbooks.

Open the Tortoise SVN settings by using right click menu in the Windows Explorer RCM | TortoiseSVN | Settings.

In the settings dialog select External Programs | Diff Viewer item.

On the Diff Viewer page, press Advanced button. Here you can assign your own difference viewer application.

Now locate Excel workbook extension you are working with - XLS, XLA, XLSM, XLSX, XLAM. If you can't find it in the list - press Add button, otherwise use Edit button.

Enter this command into External Program field:
C:\Program Files\Spreadsheet Tools\xlCompare\xlCompare.exe %base %mine

Thats all. Now save the changes and you can start using xlCompare with SVN.

Please, note: path to the Program Files folder may be different. On the 64-bit PC it looks like: C:\Program Files (x86)\. Because xlCompare itself if a 32-bit application.
