Wow, just found this very special thread about a very special software.
I actually somehow suspected that, if at all, this would have to be found on Donationcoder
Anyway, I also had difficulties with searching for exact matches of words. Likasoft support (when they were still responding some years ago) told me that in order for this to work, I would have to create my index with "morphology processing" disabled.
I hope that helps.
Something else I never really have figured out is searching for files only under a certain path
(say, like D:\Documents\Project_ABC).
I'd be very thankful for ideas on how to do this, should it be possible.
Apart from that, I also haven't found any desktop search solution that comes remotely close to Archivarius 3000 regarding speed and ease of use. It even runs portable on my company laptop and indexes the entire network server like it's nothing. And I'm talking file numbers in the 7-figure range here.
However, should Likasoft be dead, sooner or later we'd all have to look for a replacement
Thanks for any comments guys
