1  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Difficulty with launching FARR when using ` key + focus on desktop. on: March 11, 2015, 03:26:28 AM
That <Alt-Space> keypress opens the System menu on most Windows applications...

I am using Alt-Space to launch FARR for years now, and I've never missed having opened the system menu. (I am using Win+arrow keys to manage window sizing and moving instead of the system menu)

There is also an alternative. You can use another Mouser tool called TapTap to invoke FARR using a double tap on Ctrl (or any other key)

I am wondering as to what are you searching for that is longer than 513 chars?
3  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: FARR V3 Discussion on: March 20, 2014, 03:41:18 AM
I noticed that FARR currently doesn't handle plugins correctly.
For example, I have installed FARR using the installer, in the default location (Program files) and now FARR doesn't seem to be able to manage plugins, unless if I run it as admin. I am on Windows 8.1.
Can the new plugin system be made (or current one fixed) so that the plugins are located somewhere in <user>\AppData, or at least in <user>\Documents\DonationCoder\FindAndRunRobot directory together with aliases?
4  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Live alias reloading on: December 20, 2013, 03:46:10 AM

I wanted to request a feature for FARR v3 that alias files can be reloaded on the fly, when I figured out that this already works perfectly in v2.
Now I can set up shared alias file between my home and work computer, and sync them automagically with Dropbox.

So I just wanted everyone to know about this feature and make sure that it stays in FARR v3 smiley

Great work Mouser  Thmbsup

Thanks, \n eliminated the second enter which is good enough.
I also wanted to reuse runcap alias, and not copy it (as a dev i like to live by the DRY principle smiley )

Is there a way to do restartsearch with /runasadmin switch?

What I want to do is execute a bat script on my machine that requires admin privileges, and also capture the output using runcap alias.
6  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Aliases calling aliases on: November 22, 2013, 04:50:13 AM
I am trying to create an alias that will execute commands in console and display output in FARR.
I am trying to reuse the builtin runcap alias for that.

I have an alias defined like this:
[copy or print]
1000>>>Flush DNS>->Flush DNS cache | restartsearch runcap ipconfig /flushdns>+>flush

With this alias I have to press enter twice to actually execute the alias, and the search string changes after the first enter. Also the alias is not working without regex pattern.
I am trying to eliminate the second enter press and the search string change. I tried using dosearch instead of restartsearch but then the alias doesn't trigger (it just changes the search string to the alias name)

Also is it possible to this but to run the alias with admin privileges? When I try /runasadmin switch it just passes it to the runcap alias that in turn passes it to the ipconfig command and that just fails.

Probably I am missing something obvious  tellme

The other major thing I am considering for FARR 3 is a revamp of the plugin engine.

While you're at it, can the new plugin system support adding results to existing FARR results. Like people are suggesting for the chrome bookmarks plugin - you search for football, and get football.txt and football.url, etc. FARR should then be responsible for scoring the items. Offcourse, this should be entirely optional, because for some plugins it doesn't make sense to mix results with regular FARR results (ie. KlipKeeper or Network connections plugin).

Btw, I like the pyhton idea with making plugins, as it should be fast enough for majority of plugin needs, but easy enough for everyone to tackle a plugin or two.
8  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: FARR V3 Discussion on: November 17, 2013, 03:05:49 PM
It shouldn't be hard to make a plugin that will open the bookmarks file on demand (plain old json file) and display the bookmarks in FARR
9  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: control panel app searches on: November 16, 2013, 02:49:35 AM
It doesn't work with FARR in normal GodMode folder because that folder is basically empty, but windows explorer interprets it in a special way an populates it with actions. When you create the shortcuts then FARR can access them.

For me just drag and drop worked for creating shortcuts, because that are special items and can't be moved or copied - windows defaults to creating shortcuts. But I suppose that alt + drag and drop can't hurt as it is the default way. smiley
10  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: control panel app searches on: November 15, 2013, 04:16:28 PM
You can always play around with GodMode folder.
The trick is to create the GodMode folder, and then create a shortcut to every item in a new location (just drag and drop to a new folder). You can remove the original GodMode folder after you create the shortcuts. Then you point FARR to that new folder and voila - you have search of all the possible actions in Control panel.
11  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: [Solved] Multiple parameters to URL? on: November 04, 2013, 08:16:50 AM
The other ones ($$2 and $$3) are also capture groups, but what is actually captured depends on your regex. What did you put in regex?

13  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / FARR settings and "hide on focus lost" option on: August 12, 2013, 03:09:00 AM
I have FARR running with Hide when focus is lost option turned on.
Only problem with that is that the FARR settings window also hides when focus is lost. Can the FARR settings window always behave like normal windows (or ignore focus changes)?
14  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: possible regex search alias bug on: May 11, 2013, 01:26:31 PM
No problem. I use regex fairly often, so this is a simple problem for me smiley

Btw, thanks for the donation  Thmbsup
15  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: possible regex search alias bug on: May 10, 2013, 11:43:40 AM
If I understand you correctly you can write a regex like this with same effect:
[copy or print]
16  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: possible regex search alias bug on: May 10, 2013, 02:25:23 AM
The problem is with the aa alias.
You are capturing the space with the search string.
So when you type in
[copy or print]
FARR captures the space as $$1. Then in turn, you pass $$1 along to the result and have
[copy or print]
dosearch C:\test\[space][space]
that triggers the other alias that matches on \s\s.

I think it is good practice not to capture the space before the parameters. There is less chance of bugs like this.
17  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Find and Run Robot - Freeze after Launch on: April 26, 2013, 08:45:39 AM
I've sometimes got hangs in FARR when secondary disk drive got turned off by windows. Maybe that's the problem with you?
18  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Find and Run Robot - Freeze after Launch on: April 26, 2013, 03:47:03 AM
Do you have a folder with lots of files in your FARR search path?
19  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: FARR v2 - Official Bug Tracking and Feature Request Thread on: April 17, 2013, 05:00:06 PM
So FARR is doing that?
I've recently gotten a laptop with windows 8 and it was driving me nuts with constantly adding a en-US culture/keyboard layout. I never tracked it down to FARR.
20  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: File is not started using the standard programm on: April 17, 2013, 04:53:07 PM
Have you tried toggling the Launch method in Settings -> Launching files?
Sometimes when FARR acts strangely like this I change the Launch method setting and it works. Although I haven't had such problems in a long time.
21  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Feedback on: November 19, 2012, 04:39:16 AM
There is a Network connections plugin that lists all your network connections. I can't find the link but I think that it can be installed through DcUpdater utility.

Alternatively you can modify your search folders settings not to use the modifier keyword for control panel shortcuts.
22  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Include Windows 7 Start Button Search Results in FARR? on: April 23, 2012, 02:46:22 PM
Off-topic but FWIW, I personally have copied the God Mouser mode shortcuts to the FindAndRunRobot\Scripts\Control Panel (cpanel) folder, so I can get those.


 Thmbsup Simple and effective. Not sure if it could be automated, so that it is included in FARR on install...
23  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: FARR and Indexing Option - Feedback Requested on: April 06, 2012, 03:25:45 AM
I think that it would be better to tap into the USN journal like Everything just to get the filenames or windows search index to get the content index also than to implement it all over again. There is a windows search plugin already but for me it consistently crashes FARR (win7 x64).

I use FARR to quickly find commonly used files and folders. If I need to search the entire disk I use Everything (with FARR alias to trigger it on double space at the end). Only time I use windows search index is to search for emails.

For me, index in FARR is not really necessary, as I rarely search the entire disk for just one file (ie. i search for multiple log files, or a group of images etc) and FARR cant' handle multiple files selection and manipulation (as far as I know).

This really seems to confuse people. If I remember correctly, those folders are placeholders needed by DcUpdater, right? Is there another way of configuring DcUpdater, at least for installation of new plugins?
