Hi Appeon Team, 
as i said the problem is arbitrary. It seems to happen whenever i restart the computer and then open the workspace.
As i can't upgrade to PB2019 R2 or R3 right now i can give you a response if the bug still exists when i can upgrade.

Best regards

Hi Fredirich;

   I could not replicate your issue using the Native SCC in the latest PB 2019 R2 build 2358 release (see attached). If you are on a lower build of PB 2019, please update and try the native SCC feature again.

Regards ... Chris

*Phenomenon:
The visual Diff utility is missing the path arbitrarily

*Reproduce Steps:
1. Arbitrarily Powerbuilder decides it has no visual diff utility path so diffs with the source control are not possible.
2. when opening the PBNative Command Options the path is empty (Picture1)
3. When pressing Browse it preselects the correct folder in which the visual diff tool is based in.
4.1 Upon selecting the path, pressing cancel instead of OK and then reopening the PBNative Command Options the path is still written there with the addendum "%s %s" it needs.
4.2. Upon pressing OK the Button Apply in the Source Control tabpg is not enabled
