  2. Change the filename BCompare to BCompare.bak in Contents/MacOS
  3. Open Terminal, go to the dir : cd /Applications/Beyond\ Compare.app/Contents/MacOS
  4. Issue these commands: touch BCompare, and chmod -R 755 BCompare
  5. Open BCompare with Text Editor.
  6. Insert this script:
#!/bin/bash
rm "/Users/$(whoami)/Library/Application Support/Beyond Compare/registry.dat"
"`dirname "$0"`"/BCompare.bak $@

Finally, open Beyond Compare again to whether if it runs in Evaluation Mode.

It's not okay to do that.

I would like to add that the program is a bit underdeveloped.
