The log file will state which of the two files is older and note that latexdiff finished processing. Once that last statement is in the log file you can typeset the new .tex file to see the differences marked.

The internal script invokes the latexdiff program which uses the encodings available in Perl. Latexdiff looks for a line like
or assumes utf8 encoding if that doesn't exist (ASCII is a sub-set of utf8 and MacRoman). While Perl does understand MacRoman encoding it doesn't understand the `applemac` notation used by the inputenc package so can't process the file.
Are you including non-ascii text in your document (e.g., directly entering accented characters)? If not, then you can remove the inputenc line from your file(s).
