i have a lot of files named xx-01, xx-02, xx-03, yy-01, yy-02 and so on. i often want to launch xx-01, then xx-something, then yy-something, u get the idea. I don't really need the history list as much as the history of inputed text. I gave the alias "h." with results "dosearch historys -h." to bring up the historys, and ctrl+up to retrieve the last search text, so it's not really a big issue. Mouser has made Farr so great with all the possibilities that I've officially switched over. And I wonder why i've only heard Farr until now. Sorry for that.

Thanks a lot for this again.

edit: changed faar to Farr. no offense, Mouser.

We know FARR a fine piece of software, but... have you tried to type FARR correct, or is there a malfunction in your keyboard?

Version 2.98.01 - Mar 22, 2011

  • [MinorFeature] Eliminated inefficiency when triggering search via hotkey.

thanks a million too!

[BugFix] Hotkey option to not clear search text was not being obeyed.
about this, er...i don't mean to be an ass/idiot, but how do i disable it now, lol. i have gotten used to farr showing historys on toggle because it's surprising faster instead. when i untick windows option>when using hotkey to focus window, don't clear search text, it still shows my last inputted text.

sorry for the trouble, mouser.

Minor Update:

Version 2.99.01 - June 11, 2011
  • [MinorFeature] You can now drag files onto custom toolbar button to open them with the toolbar command; as always you can still just select a result and click the toolbar button.
  • [MinorFeature] You can now use Ctrl+Backspace and Ctrl+Delete to delete previous and next words from search edit cursor position, and ctrl+left/right arrows to move cursor by words; i still don't know why people use this feature but users demanded it.
  • [MinorChange] Changed wording of result context menu items for adding scoring rules.
  • [BugFix] Fixed problem where FARR window would sometimes slightly change size after multiple executions.

Also I released a new plugin: fprocs (lists running processes and provides alt+tab, process termination, and switchto-instead-of-run functionality).

I'm trying to create an alias to launch 2 applications.  Is that possible?  Here's a screenshot (I want typing "devMode" to launch my IDE and my favorite text editor, Notepad++).  The following doesn't work.  Only the IDE gets launched.  Notepad++ doesn't start:

In FARR, when you have multiple items, they act like a menu when you type in the alias name -- letting you choose which to launch.

If you want to launch both you could hit Ctrl+Alt+Enter (i think).

Alternatively, you could but both items on one line, separated by ;;;
(in which case you probably want to use the | facility to give it a label, for example "Launch Both | C:\expresslink;;;C:\notepad.exe).

@mouser: Not sure what I may have done here, but for a while now, I have been getting these FARR-related error message on boot-up (FARR is auto-started) and on restarting FARR, though FARR itself seems to load and function OK despite the error messages, after hitting ESC through all the error messages:

There's always one of these error messages first:
Quote
---------------------------
FindAndRunRobot.exe - System Error
---------------------------
The program can't start because SALRTL.DLL is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.
(Windows Search shows there are 0 copies of SALRTL.DLL on the disk.)

- and then there are several of these error messages:
Quote
---------------------------
Advanced Options: FindAndRunRobot.exe - System Error
---------------------------
The program can't start because BASS.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.
(Yet ,Windows Search shows there are 5 copies of bass.dll on the disk.)

The update for FARR did not make it go away, and I have just now re-installed FARR, and that did not make it go away either.
I don't want to blindly uninstall FARR and risk losing all my settings, and I figure I should be able to point-and-shoot the problem - if I knew what might have caused it. (I'm going looking for SALRTL.DLL after posting this.)

Any ideas?

Hm, maybe it's time to teach the webpage to read the current versioninfo from version.xml? There have been more reports of this 'issue'.

@mouser: FARR v2.99.01 needs SALRTL.DLL

What version is required please? Are you able to tell me?

Also, where could I download the correct version from?
(Thanks.)

what is SALRTL.DLL?

i think you are associating farr with some files it has nothing to do with.

It's a DLL that comes with and is used by the Altap Salamander file manager.

Ah you know what.. if you have the salamander dll in the farr plugins folder for some reason, FARR is going to try to load it as if it was a farr plugin, which could cause an error if one salamander dll is trying to load another, etc..

New release:

Version 2.102.01 - Oct 3, 2011
  • [BugFix]  Document files that started with . were not being launched properly.
  • [Feature] New option for specifying a custom portable document opener which will be used to launch documents (works well with Portable Extension Warlock).
  • [Feature] Added command sendkeys to allow alias results to simulate keypresses (alternative to paste); for syntax see here.
  • [MinorFeature] You can now use % variables and environmental variables in \ICON entries for alias results.
  • [MinorFeature] Version # now shown in tray icon hint.
  • [MinorFeature] Added option to prevent FARR from saving settings except when closing Options dialog -- useful ONLY for users on network share or similar scenario.
  • [MinorFeature] Added option to close after toolbar button launch.
  • [MinorFeature] Added new value plugins can retrieve, "userdatadir", which points to writeable directory where plugins should store any (uniquely named) configuration files.
  • [BugFix] The %MYRECENTDOCS% macro was not being expanded.

The bug with a leading dot in filenames (not processed correctly) is indeed fixed smiley

Using % variables in an .alias file still leads to an incorrect icon for all entries inside that group.

E.g.:
D:\Users\Highend\Tools\FindAndRunRobot\AliasGroups\MyCustom\highend_start[1].alias
D:\Users\Highend\Tools\FindAndRunRobot\AliasGroups\MyCustom\highend_start[1].ico

The .alias file contains e.g.:
            OpenVPN | D:\Users\%USERNAME%\Tools\OpenVPN\_OpenVPN.exe
            AdMuncher | D:\Users\%USERNAME%\Tools\AdMuncher\AdMunch.exe
            Clipboard | D:\Users\%USERNAME%\Tools\CHS\ClipboardHelpAndSpell.exe

The icon for the alias group after typing in ".s" is correct but all three entries show the same icon smiley

The only way to fix it seems to replace the variable with the real folder name or adding an /ICON entry for each one.

Can you have a look at it again, mouser or is it (now) working as intended and you want the user to add an icon for each entry?

  • [MinorFeature] Version # now shown in tray icon hint.
I think there might be a minor issue with this. When you ask Windows to always show or hide a notification area icon, it appears to do this by matching the text in the tooltip. So if you include the version number in the tooltip, and a user chooses to always show or hide the FARR icon, the next time FARR is updated, Windows will revert to the default hide when inactive setting because the name no longer matches.

Whether this is true only for the first line of the hint or in general, I am not sure. But I think this is part of the reason so few applications have version numbers (other than possibly the major) in the notification tooltip.
