brimstone,

I take it you're talking about the LOGECHO.COM in Horst Schaeffer's freeware batch file enhancer collection PBATS?



That I am. It allows much better control over the time and date format compared to the %TIME% AND %DATE% variables.

Not sure what you mean, but I've attached a screenshot of my custom alias.

Actually, I figured out a solution without having a separate batch file.

znote1 $$1 | D:\Logfile\LOGECHO.COM $W $M/$D/$Y $h:$m - $$1>>logfile.txt

LOGECHO is a simple DOS program that lets me have more control over the date and time outputs.

So typing "znote1 Hello World!" into FARR results in:

Thu 04/03/08 23:52 - Hello World!

being added to logfile.txt in the same directory as LOGECHO.

You could also do the same using the parameters from my original post, except use cmd.exe instead of LOGECHO.

While I like the addnote and viewnote features of FARR2, I prefer more condensed information in my log files. I'm sure this is easy to do, but I can't seem to find out how to do it.

I've got a batch file in a directory that does exactly like addnote. I want to be able to run it and pass text to it from FARR.

echo %DATE% %TIME% Hello There!>>logfile.txt

How would I set it up in FARR to pass the text between %TIME% and >> ("Hello There!" in this case) to a batch file?

I found the solution, but not sure exactly how some of the shortcuts got screwed up.

The registry fixed worked perfectly. Still not sure why, though. I've never had any issues with viruses or spyware on this system.

Thanks for the help, Mouser

It's strange, but some shortcuts work great with FARR, while others continue to start up as text files. After unchecking the box, most resolve to the correct executable.

Using both xplorer2 and windows explorer, the LNK files open great. But the ones that don't resolve (they just point to the LNK in the start menu), continue to open up in Notepad.

Wierd...I'll continue to look and see if it's a local problem.

New FARR user here. I used it about 2 days and then decided FARR alone was worth my $20 donation.  thumbs up  Kiss

This may have already been answered, but I couldn't find anything via searching. For some reason, most of my start menu shortcuts (*.lnk files) load up as a text file.  The LNKs work fine, as I can launch the application by simply double-clicking on the *.lnk within my file manager.

Any ideas? I'm sure it's probably something simple I've missed.

[EDIT] I've tried both FARR v1.13 and the latest v2 Beta. Both exhibit the same problems.
