Be sure Trusted Path contains the folder you are opening

Yes, I have already configured the Trusted Paths. From the command line with the same paths it works, starting from FreeFileSync instead it does not.

Found the problem but is on FSC side.

FSC can't send AppleEvents (used by visdiff)

The allowed apps are listed under "Security & Privacy" -> Privacy -> Automation

This is for the Terminale App, but FSC doesn't allow to run AppleEvents, I think you mush ask to its developer

Apple says, the calling process (in this case FSC) must have permissions to run other processes using AppleEvents, I think FSC do not support this feature

I have found a solution that works. This is the command to use in FreeFileSync:
open -a /Applications/ --args %local_path% %local_path2%

You can close the ticket, thanks for the support :)
