1 Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Launch History not working as expected on: July 01, 2015, 12:09:58 AM
update:  just checked the settings again and after removing the tick in network drives, the history is learning again.  Not sure how the tick got in there, if I may have accidentally done that while looking for a solution. However the issue happened before I started fiddling and FARR had worked fine before. At least at the moment it's working again but have not yet checked on behaviour after a restart or reboot.
2 Software / Find And Run Robot / Launch History not working as expected on: June 29, 2015, 11:45:49 PM
This morning I noticed that my launch history was almost empty - just showing excel and word program files but none of my frequent individual data files.  I checked under History Options and have "add launched files" set to 12  but even after doing new launches a few times, nothing gets added. I now installed the latest version but this did not make any difference. Is there any other setting that may have changed and that I don't know about.  I do use network drive paths and have this ticked. While this caused some issues in the past (getting unticked without any good reason), one of the recent updates solved that issue.

Thanks Mouser, that's fine - I thought it's me not using Farr correctly.
4 Software / Find And Run Robot / Farr not remembering my preference on: September 07, 2014, 06:02:32 PM
I figured out that I need to untick the option of "do not add network drive paths to lauch history (they can slow search) under Program Options/Settings/Search Behaviour. I do use networked drives and don't mind waiting a second longer to get the result I am after. This works well but several times now I noticed that the launch history is cut short and only 4 results show. Once I untick this box the results slowly built up again. I can't say for sure that after every reboot of my pc this setting gets lost but it does happen every few days.  Is this a bug? ohmy
5 Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Can't work out how to get more than 4 suggestions on: July 22, 2014, 07:41:46 PM
hmmm, just did some more testing and now I have 5 files there, so 1 of the the new files "stuck". I also opened "pattern scoring" and notice that 2 files I regularly use are listed there with high scores. Would a record in here prevent them from showing up in the initial blank search?
This would indicate that giving a high score to a file or search means that once I start typing it will show up more quickly but before doing any typing it will not be considered as an option?
6 Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Can't work out how to get more than 4 suggestions on: July 22, 2014, 06:25:08 AM
you are correct of course (and why wouldn't you as this is your baby  Thmbsup) - the 4 files/programs from the screenshot show up plus another four programs that I must have unticked a long time ago because I don't want them to clutter the view.
However, why are other searches that resulted in files being clicked/chosen not added to these 4?
7 Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Can't work out how to get more than 4 suggestions on: July 22, 2014, 03:50:03 AM

thanks for your help.  My settings under Display Options is more or less the same as yours (Farr1) - I think History Options is the issue (Farr2) . My aim is to have more than 4 files show when I bring Farr to the foreground (Farr 3).
8 Software / Find And Run Robot / Can't work out how to get more than 4 suggestions on: July 22, 2014, 02:16:29 AM
Hitting the Pause/Break button brings up my Farr and it always shows 4 links. While these are frequently used files, I would like to see more (10-15). Also, these 4 files all have a score of 100. I have other files that I set to higher scores, why don't they show up? Once I enter something into the blank field, Farr does populate with more and shows also higher scores. Am I misunderstanding what should show up before you type? I played around with the settings under Launch/Search History but don't quite understand how to use History Options / Blank Searches and Ignore History Scores.

Thank you apankrat - was just wondering what I might be missing if I trial the beta first

Is there any difference between the last beta and the current release version with respect to current features or bugs?

thanks guys smiley
12 Software / Screenshot Captor / How to upgrade? on: May 21, 2014, 03:54:38 AM
just wondering if there is a recommended upgrade procedure, ie do I need to uninstall first and then do a clean install or can I go over the top?
13 Software / Find And Run Robot / which files/progs show in a blank search? on: March 11, 2014, 06:17:26 PM
I am using FaRR for several years and love it. Whenever I move to a new pc, it's one of the progs I can't do without. I realise I am not even using all of the features  Cool .
I noticed that when I press Pause/Break to open the gui and enter my search term a number of listings already pop up. I wonder how they are chosen? They all have Scores of 100, other files have higher scores but to find them I need to enter something more.  Using alias I can get to what I am searching for quickly but not as quickly as if the top 10 actually appeared as first choice in a blank pop-up. I am not sure if I forgot about some setting as it seems to me in one of my previous installations, the top 10 worked differently.

I am a bit confused as to what "cloning" means as opposed to creating an image and what the advantage would be?
15 Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: how to enter text into a text box on: November 01, 2013, 06:34:34 PM

thanks for that. I knew it had to be easy but somehow got confused between the highlighting rectangle and the text object. I don't see a cursor but no need if I know typing will just do what I need.   Works fine now - even for me  cheesy
16 Software / Screenshot Captor / how to enter text into a text box on: November 01, 2013, 01:23:13 AM
Mouser, I just installed the latest version of the program and watched your video.  I know it will take quite some time for me to get to use many of the features but I am baffled that I can't get the easy one to work for me. In your video you rush a bit through the text box feature and even watching it several times I can't quite see how I can enter text. I can create the box, move it, shrink it but where do I type the text?  I am sure it's so obvious that I will be very embarrassed but that's one function I do need. I am not referring to the "label" text but the yellow background text box.

can only confirm - have been using stickies for several years and really like it. Once or twice I had an issue and raised on the forum and got a response very quickly - it's a gem.
18 Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Comparison of the contents of 2 xls files to isolate missing records on: July 14, 2012, 07:23:54 PM
yeah, not being that tech savvy I probably underestimated the difficulty.  I thought this was more a long the lines of some formula like if value in column K is identical in sheet A & sheet B based on time stamp in column B and  column I is some code 9 (varying by up to 2 minutes) then format cell  in red -- obviously some cut an and paste is still necessary to position the relevant fields in a better way. Or if necessary a lot of information can be cut out leaving only the bare minimum of data fields.  The original idea or hope of course was to use the original files and to minimise prior handling.
19 Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Comparison of the contents of 2 xls files to isolate missing records on: July 14, 2012, 08:29:33 AM
Guys, thanks for the links and advice - I will study this more closely tomorrow.  I am not sure though if these programs will help me as it seems they pick up on minor and exact differences between files. My files are substantially different even though they relate to the same records. Only two data points can be directly compared and as I mentioned, for the time factor to be considered matching, the time has a variance of 1-2 minutes.
20 Software / Post New Requests Here / Comparison of the contents of 2 xls files to isolate missing records on: July 14, 2012, 03:43:50 AM
First, not sure if my request is suitable for here - please tell me if this is not of any general interest, too boring or too complicated.

My little feature, program or coding snack request is as follows:

I have two small xls files that contain output from different sources. While the underlying transactions are the same, I can't easily compare the files to see if any entry is only appearing in one file. I am looking for a simple procedure to compare the data in file 1 with the data in file 2 and highlight or flag or create an output file of any record that is not in both files.
Having studied the files, the only common information in both files is 1) an amount and 2) a time stamp.  Problem is that the amounts are not unique and the timestamps between file 1 and file 2 are not identical but vary by up to 1-2 minutes. So any comparison would have to be based on a) amount being identical and timestamp being within 2 minutes for the record in question.
I attach two files as samples ( some columns have been cleared or modified for privacy reasons) but these columns should be ignored anyway as they do not appear in both files. In my files two transactions are appearing only in the AOE13 File namely Order ID 40101 and 40103 - these are the files I would like to see flagged or similar. Sorry but since I can't upload xls files, I chose jpg for illustration.
21  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Agent Ransack 2010 freeware lightweight - Desktop Search on: April 10, 2010, 07:08:03 PM
I had a look at the site but find the info rather thin  ohmy

How does it work? Does it just look for the file names or can you search for text inside the files? Does it allow for search across networked drives?

I am using Copernic (the old version 1.7) which works very well for me. The later versions did not allow for networked drives or had other issues. I am curious to know if Agent Ransack improves on that but the website does not provide enough info.
22 Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: problem with on: August 15, 2009, 11:00:12 PM
Thanks Mouser - I tried again and was very patient (went away to watch TV) but by the time I came back the past launch history was shown normally. I then looked through the records within the Gui and and in the ini.file but did not see anything noteworthy. I decided to delete the records one by one (in the Gui) and the next time I rebooted, FARR was as responsive as usual. Strangely though my History was back and everything is there.  Grin
23 Software / Find And Run Robot / problem with on: August 15, 2009, 08:21:34 AM
Just upgraded to the latest version but seem to encounter problems. When I try to launch FARR the usual window opens but then it goes into "retrieving past launch history" and gets stuck. Nothing more happens. If I try to type anything, FARR becomes non-responsive and I have to kill it with taskmanager. The window btw does not have the usual X in the corner to close it either.
Any suggestions?
24 Software / Find And Run Robot / Backdoor Malware on: November 15, 2008, 07:07:25 PM
I have been using Find and Run for a few years now and think it's a great program. I am not updating each time an update comes out, my experience is sometimes when things work for you, don't mess with them.
Still, I do come back regularly to see if I am missing something and eventually will look for the upgrade.

Just wondering why the current version shows us with some alerts on Jotti or Virustotal: Backdoor.XiaoBird.42 (paranoid heuristics) (probable variant) - I assume this is a FP but is this something that could be cleared up with VBA?
25 Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: FARR2, tentatively, scheduled for monday public beta! on: October 20, 2007, 12:35:55 AM
 huh Strange - and I thought it was in public beta since the beginning of this year or even longer?  tellme
I feel I am the only one waiting for final release version Grin
