Find And Run Robot / weird "no disk" error
« on: February 12, 2010, 04:32 PM »
I occasionally get an error upon my first typed letter in the FARR search box:

"FindAndRunRobot.exe - No Disk

There is no disk in the drive.
Please insert a disk into drive

...and I have to close the warning window 3-4 times before FARR will continue normally.  It never happens when I'm using a FARR hotkey, just the plain 'ol break key.

Is there maybe a setting somewhere I've mistakenly turned on, or and alias I'm triggering that makes FARR think I'm trying to access a disk??

I'm on win7 if that matters...


Just curious, why does FARR sometimes say it finds more results than it shows?


Hi.  Sometimes my previous search term is cleared and sometimes its not, and I end up typing my new term on the end of the previous one.  What setting should I be looking for to fix this (so it's always cleared)



I found this topic that seems kind of related:

but I don't understand it.

Is there a simple way to specify only to search a certain folder and one of its subfolders?  I'm using FARR to search for patient files while patients are in the treatment rooms and can see what comes up, so in that senario I don't want all my little text files in different directories coming up, but I don't want to just screen out all txt files.  I'm using an autohotkey input box to get the patient's name and then sending it to FARR that way.

If I add "D:\Gaitscan\" (without quotes) in front of it, it'll find the one folder, and if I add another backslash it finds files in the subfolder but not the "parent" folder.  I tried adding "--" like the thread above was talking about, but it didn't work.

Is there a way to have FARR search this way?

Find And Run Robot / how to access FARR on VNC server?
« on: November 12, 2008, 12:22 PM »
I use VNC (RealVNC) a lot, and it would be nice to be able to access the FARR on the remote computer, but when I try it, it opens the FARR on my viewing computer.  Is there any way around this?


I tried autohotkey on the other computer

send {break}

(didn't work)

FARR Plugins and Aliases / todoTXT for dummies?
« on: September 20, 2008, 12:49 PM »
Hi, I've been trying to figure out this very promising plugin, but am not quite getting it...

when I type in "td" the whole legend page comes up, but that's all that seems to work.  If I type in "td ?," nothing happens.  Actually I can't get anything (eg. "b, ") to seem to work on it.

Is there a video of it in action somewhere, kind of like the Lifehacker/Gina Tripani (sp?) video of the todo.txt command line version?  I think having the system run by FARR would be a much better way to go, but I'm not a programmer at all and can't seem to figure this out.

Find And Run Robot / rename from FARR window
« on: August 13, 2008, 12:11 PM »
What's the best way to do this?  When I right click an item and select "Shell Context menu", the "rename" item doesn't do anything.  If I right click and select "Explore here", the folder is brought up but the individual file is not selected, which means I have to search for it all over again.

Is there something obvious I'm missing, or maybe a setting somewhere I have to change?

I could have sworn that before this update, when I clicked a link to a text file from a FARR list, it would open in Ted Notepad (that's what I have the default application set as for txt files), but today they're opening in notepad.exe.

Any suggestions?


Find And Run Robot / how to unblock FARR in Vista
« on: June 11, 2008, 04:26 PM »
Whenever I try to run FARR, UAC comes up and says "an unidentified program wants access to your computer".  In windows defender it says "not yet classified" and it is not digitally signed.

Other than turning off UAC, is there a way to get it to run on startup, i.e. any way to "unblock" FARR permanently (right now I have to start it up manually each time I reboot)

Right now my shortcut to gmail will open a new tab even if I already have it open in a tab (firefox).  Things would be faster if the shortcut could just go to the one that's already loaded.  I figured this would already be in existence, but I can't find it.
