Thanks again, Mouser - FARR easily gets my vote as the greatest time saver/utility program ever.  (Of course, I'd place Vimperator for FF second, so you know I'm strange...)

Version 2.87.01 beta - April 25, 2010
  • [MinorFeature] appcapappendmemo now auto scrolls to bottom of memo.
  • [MinorFeature] new alias launch string to explicitly go to end of memo  (gomemobottom)
  • [MinorFeature] modified text in alias dialog to make clear alias name was also trigger text
  • [MinorFeature] attempt to remove some blinking from memo mode when text doesn't change.
  • [BugFix] attempt to extend max length of environmental variable replacement in things like search directories
  • [Feature] you can now refer to the currently selected result (or first result) using a variable replacement (%CURRENTRESULTNB%); especially useful for triggering actions via hotkey.
  • [Feature] you can now recursively include file contents with the #filecontents alias string.
  • [Feature] improved and documented the use of * for alias pattern to always match search against contents.
  • [Feature] added -exitifnotrunning commandline option and clarified help on others.
  • [Feature] added error on commandline args that aren't understood.
  • [Feature] now checks the return value from plugin Initialize function; if false is returned, the plugin is not loaded.  This could break plugins that have been returning false from the Initialization function in the past with no effect.

Well, I'm not sure what's happening now.
Having just rebooted my laptop, I get this error:
Quote
---------------------------
Find and Run Robot
---------------------------
ATTENTION: Because it appeared to crash on the last run, the following plugin has been disabled:
C:\UTIL\Windows utilities\FindAndRunRobot\Plugins\Gmail Tasks\FScript.dll

NOTE: The plugin will attempt to be loaded on the next run of the program,
 so to prevent this from happening in the future, please remove or
 update this plugin and report the problem on the www.DonationCoder.com forum.
---------------------------
OK   
---------------------------

Then I get:
Quote
---------------------------
Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
---------------------------
Runtime Error!

Program: ...IL\Windows utilities\FindAndRunRobot\FindAndRunRobot.exe

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.
---------------------------
OK   
---------------------------
FARR then crashes.
So I removed Gmail Tasks from the equation, and next time another plugin is found to be faulty.
And then FARR just crashes again (same pattern) every time I restart it.
When I restore Gmail Tasks, it's the guilty party again.
Help! I have become addicted to using FARR and now I can't get my fix!

It's like launchy but better!

I am having a very hard time trying to understand what an earth the linked Italian staircase producing company has to do with Launchy! Nothing, I guess!

@mouser: OK, following on from my post above, I have just established that FARR crashes on startup if any one of these plugins are in the FARR directory:
  • Gmail Tasks
  • GooglePlus
  • TimeZone

So, I have removed them, and now FARR starts up fine.
I have no idea why these plugins should suddenly seem to start to cause offence.

Thanks for the report Ian.. I think these are all fscript based plugins.. do you have any other plugins that use fscript.dll that work?
There have been some incompatibility issues with older versions of the fscript.dll and other plugins.

@mouser: In answer to your question:
Quote
...do you have any other plugins that use fscript.dll that work?

I presume all the plugins work (I don't know that any have stopped working). There just seem to be three that cause FARR to crash on startup.
Offhand, I don't know which of the plugins use fscript.dll, but here is a list of the folders in my Plugins folder:
  • Clipboard Help+Spell
  • Clock
  • ExternalSearch
  • FARRAltTab
  • FarrFox
  • FARRGoogleSuggest
  • FarrMilk
  • FarrMostRecentlyUsed
  • FarrUninstall
  • FCalc
  • Gcal_quicadd
  • Google_Translate
  • hamnotes
  • KlipKeeper
  • NWConnect
  • PrinterList
  • ProcessKill
  • ProcessTamer
  • ScreenshotCaptor
  • SendMessage
  • ServiceCtrl
  • Uninstalled Plugins
  • URLSnooper

The Uninstalled Plugins folder is where I have put the following plugins that cause FARR to crash on startup (they are in ZIPped folders.):
  • Gmail Tasks
  • GooglePlus
  • TimeZone

AFAIU, the following are fscript-based (and I'm fairly certain the others are not):

Any ideas? I use 2.87.03 without any issues (though goodlePlus does act strange at the moment)???

Is it possible using aliases (or something else) to map ';1' to do Alt+1 ? The current behaviour is to start searching for the ';1' string. What I want is that ';1' string to invoke an action, or sequence of programmable actions.

Little help?

BTW, I can do this using autohotkey, but I can't stop it from automatically attempting to search using the input string.

Thanks in advance.

reckoner, you can create an alias for that (option > lists > aliases/groups > myaliases > right click and create new.

In the "regular expression" box, add this:
^;1$

In the "Results" box add actions you want executed when you type ";1" (see FARR helpfile for details on commands).
Example:
.| dolaunch htmlviewurl http://www.fifa.com/ ;;;setsize 300,600,300,600

(This would display the webpage fifa.com in the FARR window immediately when you type ";1")

Thanks. However, the problem with it is that it alters the presented results. What I'm trying to do is *operate* on the list of presented results using ';1' to edit the first result in the list. Likewise, ';2' would operate on the 2nd item in the list, and so on. FARR already operates on the list using Alt+1 and Ctrl+1 without altering the results shown. I'm trying to accomplish the same thing without using the Alt or Ctrl keys.

thanks again.

New update with big improvement to the speed at which FARR displays/wakesup from minimized state:

Version 2.90.01 - Aug 18, 2010
  • [MajorFeature] Faster wakeup display from minimized state (see also the StayInMemoryLonger option on General Options tab)
  • [Feature] Alias matches now show instantly even when keypress delay option is enabled.
  • [BugFix] When you do not have "stop on exact alias match" checked and an alias was matched, it could show large numbers of results.
  • [Feature] New install of farr now adds the search directory %PROGRAMFILES64% which will search in the win64 specific program files directory (not just the Program Files (x86) directory); older users should add this directory manually.
  • [BugFix] When launch results had an argument that ended in \ it could mess up launching of them
  • [BugFix] When the option to show FARR in taskbar when active was set, there was an additional delay before FARR could start accepting characters after unminimizing.
  • [MinorFeature] Added text in options tabs reminding people to right-click to add/edit/delete items.
  • [MinorFeature] Added version of appcapappendmemo that doesn't scroll to bottom of memo.

Did the -show command line argument get removed?

I'm getting a message:
FARR 2nd INSTANCE COMMANDLINE ARG ERROR. Not understood commandline argument: -show

Hi Mouser,

My CNET download tracker app just told me there's a 2.90.02 version of FARR out, so I dl'ed it and installed it without visiting the site first, and it does indeed say that's the version, but the version history in the Help file only shows versions through 2.90.01.  Any idea how I got a version that's later than the one here?  Did they somehow get hold of one they shouldn't have?

Thanks,

Alias

its impossible for any other site to get a version more recent than the one on dc.  they all originate from DC.

what happens is that i sometimes release a "silent" update, which means i might make a tiny change and increment the 3rd component of the version number, but not announce it because the change is so slight.

Thanks, Mouser - I knew you're the "grand poobah" of FaRR, so I was concerned that somebody might've been "manipulating" your stuff...

I was wondering about that. I noticed it on Softpedia.
They have been pretty good to deal with but I noticed on my stuff if I don't up the version number even if I send 'em an update notice, they won't post it. The other thing that gets old is messing around the pad files. I just make a comment in one of my postings that I have this new software and hope they post it.  I'm getting lazy. :)
