I'm getting an error when trying to compare two versions of a file. I'm
not actually trying to use an external editor. I was assuming it would use
the internal one.

"External compare was failed.
Cannot run program "C:/Program": CreateProcess error=2, The system cannot
find the file specified"

I guess it can't find the executable compare editor. Can it be set to use
the default eclipse compare editor?

more info
***************************

Just as test, if I install tortoiseSVN it finds the tortoise compare
editor.

org.eclipse.team.svn.core.operation.local.RunExternalCompare Operation$ExternalCompareOperationHelper.execute(RunExternal CompareOperation.java:218)

Caused by: java.io.IOException: CreateProcess error=2, The system cannot
find the file specified

The same just happened to me.
It seems that with the last update a new configuration appeared in the
preferences (Team->SVN->Diff Viewer) and the default values for the File
Associations tabs reflect a particular configuration (may be the one of
the developer) that requires TortoiseSVN.

I just unchecked the two file associtation active and the problem
disappeared.

Hello,

By mistake, build contained part of new functionality(related to external
compare editor). Please, update to latest version, it's fixed now
