Using P4 for LabVIEW files which are essentially binary and have a proprietary diff tool. However, each file contains internal references to other dependencies as relative paths. Therefore when diffing the files, because the files are taken out of their normal place in the file structure and copied to a temp directory for the diff process, they do not open up properly because the dependencies can no longer be found.

Tortoise Git handles diffs by copying the files (with ammended file names) to the original place in the workspace and then removing them after the diff operation.

Is it possible to configure P4 to keep the files in their original paths for diffing?
