Just to say that setting up an exception in Microsoft Security Essentials worked !!

No more freezing !

i'll keep you informed

cheers, Nico

Find And Run Robot / FARR bug ?
« on: March 27, 2012, 02:24 AM »
Hi Mouser,

on two different computers, using a portable installation on brand new ssd drives, we sometimes have a blank result list for the following regex alias :
^(https?://)?(([0-9a-z_!~*'().&=+$%-]+: )?[0-9a-z_!~*'().&=+$%-][email protected])?(([0-9]{1,3}\.){3}[0-9]{1,3}|localhost|([0-9a-z_!~*'()-]+\.)*([0-9a-z][0-9a-z-]{0,61})?[0-9a-z]\.[a-z]{2,6})(:[0-9]{1,4})?((/?)|(/[0-9a-z_!~*'().;?:@&=+$,%#-]+)+/?)$

result is : f | #filecontents C:\path_to\www.txt

it's like FARR stops working for 3-10 seconds (we can see a : does not respond in the title bar...) then everything works again fine...

it's hard to understand what happens... the status bar indicates the number of results which is correct (30 in that case...) the size of the results list seems to be calculated correctly (we use the auto-expand feature) but it is blank...

is it a problem with the regex or with filecontents ?

it seems we did not have the problem before the new installation... do you have any clue ?

adding my 2 cents to mouser's answer

you can even use the dosearch command to create an alias using the +txt MODIFIER

Alias Trigger Text : txt
Regular Expression Pattern : ^txt (.*)
Results : txt $$1 | dosearch +txt $$1

This is not just to remove the + sign you can add other modifiers like for example one to open your text files in another editor than the default one, or restrict the search to txt files with some prefix....

i changed the write access so that the FARR directory is writable by current user
and it seems to work perfectly now  :D

funny, i had the same problem today...

i overwrited the configdir.ini so that the FARR ini file is saved in the root folder of FARR

when running FARR with administrator rights it seems to work, but if i ask FARR to run with admin rights, it does not launch at startup...

maybe i could run it in portable mode ?

i switched from launchy to FARR a few years ago, and i can say it was the single best thing i've done on a computer...
get to know FARR and i promiss you'll never go back
you can do so much (i'm not talking about plugins i'm talking about core features ... filecontent, regex, dosearch, copyclip, variables, ...)
with some autohotkey scripts, you don't even know what OS you're running  :P

keep up the good work Mouser

one happy FARR user  :-*

great mouser ;)

that works !

hey mouser,
just tried the latest beta release 2.87.01

it does not resolve this issue...
maybe that's normal since it does not say so in the release note, when will that be available ?

wonderful !  :-*

i sometimes use a simple right click on the result, the i choose "shell context menu" then open

that would be wonderful !

Thanks mouser  :Thmbsup:

Hi mouser
any news regarding this issue ?

i'd would love to see a solution coming  :-*

i think that would work  :huh:

or you could add a re-cache command line option

as you prefer ;)

it is possible to have dynamic search folders by using the following trick :

you set a user variable dynamically (for instance using autohotkey : Run, C:\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot\FindAndRunRobot.exe -launch "setuservar Pixos.projet_www=SomeProject")
projet_www = C:\_web\www\SomeProject

Then you use the %uservar.Pixos.projet_www% variable as a search directory like virtual folder name (%PROGRAMFILES%, ...)
Works fine, BUT the variables are randomly refreshed, most of the time they are not.

in the options, the user variables reflects the change everytime, but most of the time FARR searches with the "previously set" folder

is this a bug ? or do you have to create a new command line command : go[searchfolders]reload ?

Cheers, Nitrix

FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: "Go" Alias SLOW!
« on: March 19, 2010, 12:20 PM »
As i said, it happened to me too
try to make firefox your default browser again (system wide)
make firefox your custom browser tool in FARR options, that works too

Fist Happy new year to all donation coder members ;)

wish #99 (i'll go down to 1  :D) :
please add a nice way to add a separator in the result window... that would make FARR more usable and customizable
i currently use the following "result" :
 __________________ | C:\_common\programs\FARR Scripts\DoNothing.ahk /STAYOPEN /ICON=icons\noicon.ico
where DoNothing.ahk does nothing

cheers, Nico

Thanks for the update !
i'm glad to see a new release !

Keep up the good work mouser  :up:

pgdn in result view will show all, and then subsequent presses will page through the multiple-pages of results?

that would be perfect

Find And Run Robot / Re: Farr strecthed idea, send key strokes
« on: May 15, 2009, 03:36 AM »
I can actually quite easily add the ability to send arbitrary keystrokes/hotkeys as well if people want, or of course a plugin could do this.

you should do it ;) but not as a plugin as a core feature
