I am currently using v2.00.82 ALPHA but seem unable to download the latest alpha version using the normal link - has this changed?
yes, it has changed to a *top secret* location.. ;) PM mouser for the new location..

just an fyi - with armando's help, the latest versions (2.00.108) seem to be not hanging any more, but what's even better is farr comes up faster now, and try as i might i cannot get it to miss any initial keystrokes after hitting the break key.  for those who suffered from this in the past, it's no small thing to have it (apparently) fixed. yipee  :D

Very stable here too. And, mouser, I've been trying to fool farr too, sending keystrokes at the speed of light... But farr is quicker than me.
Congratulations!  :)

I am using FARR 2.00.104 and it also works very reliably now. I haven't noticed any startup issues. And,  :Thmbsup:, it is very fast. Bravo, Mouser!

I am using 2.00.108 and it has been very solid for me (although I am not 'stretching the envelope').  I LOVE this program.  The calculator is very cool as well.

Hi Mouser!

Glad to inform you that I find the latest version v2.00.108 to be very stable and
have not had any problems so far. Touch wood!  :)

JeffC - By the way, what is this Calculator you are referring to? A separate program
or is it a feature in FARR that I haven't discovered? :)

Thanks

I am a little curious why mouser wouldn't simply put a link at the top of the this thread so that people can easily download it without PM. Anyone know the reason?

That's true. The only trouble for me is that I PMed and wait for quite a while, no response. Looks like mouser processes the request manually :)

FARR is going public in July, and all this secret URL stuff will come to an end.
The real reason not to post it is to avoid it getting picked up on software listing sites -- i'd rather keep the userbase for v2 to people on this forum until i'm sure i'm not going to be making any new changes that could be hard to update.

I am new to FFAR and I apologize if this is a really dumb question (I have searched the forums to no avail). I am running FFAR 2.00.108 on a Win2000 SP4 system, and I cannot see the column headers!

I get a FFAR window like this:

FFAR-Search.jpg


And no matter what setting or skin I use, I always get a column-less display. Here are my current options:

What am I doing wrong??

well that's a bug, no other way to explain it.  but one i've not seen before.
there is an option to hide the column headers but it's clear from the options that you don't have that option enabled.

if you exit the program completely and the restart it, do you still have the same problem?
i'm very interested in figure out what might cause this.

Hi cosgrovedc!

Welcome to DC.

In the display mode you're using, there's no way to show the columns, as that information is under the name of the app.
You probably are looking for this option in the display tab:

ooops!!!
jgpaiva is right, in large icon slide mode, there are no headers.  i shall add code to gray out headers option when it is checked.

ps.
jgpaiva hasn't anyone told you it's rude to correct the author of a program and show you know it better than he does  :mad:

good question..
you can't really provide parameters on the fly for any program.. though i could add a special modifier that would let you do that (not a bad idea).

i think they key insight though is that there are not going to be too many programs you actually need to provide arguments for i dont think, and you are well advise to create an alias for such programs.

to do this, just go to the aliases and create a new one, and provide a regular expression pattern for the program that looks something like:
myappnickname (.*)
and for the results, add this to the end of the launch string:
$$1


now you can launch this program with the arguments you wish by typing
myappnickname commandline arguments

BUG ALERT BUG ALERT!

If max files to keep in launch history is 0 and the Add launched files to launch history is still checked it will throw a bug when you try to launch.  My suggestion for possible fix...if launch history gets changed to 0 or less uncheck the add launched files to launch history and make that box show a default number.

Edit: It is 2.00.108 also.

What version are you running diz? Do you remember what you were doing when the crash occurred?
