Can't run winmerge with this command - winmerge just doesn't start. Without "start" prefix winmerge starts, but it unable to find temporary file.

 !?prompt?default! - prompts user for parameter value
 !& - selected files list (quoted, space-delimited)
 Local command patterns: !^! - file name from local panel
────────────────────────────────────
 ( ) Remote command           (x) Local command
 [ ] Apply to directories     [ ] Execute recursively

I'm not quite sure what are you tring to achieve. But in case you do: "start" is not a program, it is internal command of Window shell (cmd.exe). So you must run cmd.exe to interpret it. You do it like this:
cmd.exe /c start /wait winmerge ! !^!

After save

I successfull started Winmerge with this command:
"C:\Program Files\WinMerge\WinMergeU.exe" "!^!" "!" (Local Command)

But after i save the modifications in remote file and close the WinMerge i lose the modifications.

Why?
