please help with 2.8 build!
« on: November 20, 2009, 07:46:56 PM »
The latest version of FARR is giving me problems.  It will only execute directories by not shortcuts or executables so i cannot launch my programs anymore.  The window disappears when i hit enter as if it is about to execute the program but nothing happens.  This is the FIRST time i've had a problem with FARR :(

PS:  I am using winxp SP3 with litestep shell replacement.

There is also some kind of memory leak as i've seen FARR using over 40MB of RAM!
