Select the Batch Files. You can select single files or search entire directories using the Add File... and Add Directory... buttons.
Note: Be sure to exclude the <MasterFiles> directory, as merging this directory would corrupt most of the Master Files in this directory.

Note: The Batch Type Differ will not display all type conflicts like the normal Type Differ
Select Finish to close out of the Batch Type Differ.
<TestStand Large Applications Development> refers to the installation directory of the toolkit. The default location is <Program Files>\National Instruments\TestStand Large Applications Development.
If you have just one file with a type conflict you can use the Type Differ instead of the Batch Type Differ and then you can see the conflicts if you are curious. There are also help files installed to the start menu for each of the Type Differs.
