      Hi there,
      I tried the compare function of ProR and compared to reqif-files as described in the youtube video. (https://youtu.be/-XSc4sqi0gg)
      Unfortunately when doing so, I was told that there were no differences detected between the files although there are in fact several distinctions, that I can also identify when looking at the reqifs by myself.
      What could I have possibly been doing wrong? I suspect that the installation of ProR or RMF did not work properly as I was facing problems with the proxy server authentication during installation. Could this be it?
      Thank you in advance and best regards
      Michael

      Hi Michael,

      Sorry to hear that you have problems.

      I don’t think so… I assume that you’re using the free version or ReqIF Studio, right? If ReqIF Studio works, then the basic comparison should work as well.

      Here is a simple test: The big, lower pane has a dropdown on the top left (it should be set to “Model Compare (No Containment Feature”). You can switch to “Text Compare”. This will give you a diff of the raw XML. This should help you to see whether you are really compare what you’re thinking you’re comparing.

      Are you interested in commercial support? Then let’s have a quick call (gern auf Deutsch): https://calendly.com/formalmind/jastram

      And last: If you need to do frequent ReqIF compares, then you probably want to use Binom instead: https://www.reqif.academy/software/binom/ . To use Binom, you need the Corporate Subscription: https://www.reqif.academy/join/corporate/

      Best – Michael
