Find And Run Robot / Scroll wheel not working on windows 11
« on: May 04, 2022, 10:41 AM »
I have recently migrated to windows 11 with FARR v2.233.02 and I notice that the scroll wheel does not work in FARR anymore. Is it just me?

Thanks for all the great work on FARR!

Find And Run Robot / How to Restore INI file from BackupIni directory
« on: October 12, 2021, 10:02 AM »
How can I restore or view a backup like FindAndRunRobot.ini._10_12_2021_7_32_33_AM.bak from the BackupIni?

It is not stored as a plain text file, but some binary format.

I understand. Where can I get the latest version of Fscript?

Find And Run Robot / Create FARR Python plug-in?
« on: April 15, 2021, 05:22 PM »
The documentation on this forum for using Fscript and creating a Python plug-in is very old. Has there been any progress to facilitate creating plug-ins in Python?

Find And Run Robot / Update to new FARR portable version?
« on: April 15, 2021, 04:18 PM »
I'm currently running the portable version of FARR v2.226.01 and I would like to upgrade to the portable version of FARR v2.239.01 but I don't want to lose any of my fonts and other configuration settings, plugins, aliases, etc.

How can I do this between the portable versions?

Find And Run Robot / run FindAndRunRobot from command line ?
« on: December 15, 2015, 08:40 AM »
I am trying to integrate  FindAndRunRobot with some other  scripts and I would like to do something like the following,
Code: Text [Select]
  1. c:> FindAndRunRobot  <the text that would normally go in the input box>

Is this possible?


Thanks. However, the problem with it is that it alters the presented results. What I'm trying to do is *operate* on the list of presented results using ';1' to edit the first result in the list. Likewise, ';2' would operate on the 2nd item in the list, and so on. FARR already operates on the list using Alt+1 and Ctrl+1 without altering the results shown. I'm trying to accomplish the same thing without using the Alt or Ctrl keys.

thanks again.

Is it possible using aliases (or something else) to map ';1' to do Alt+1 ? The current behaviour is to start searching for the ';1' string. What I want is that ';1' string to invoke an action, or sequence of programmable actions.

Little help?

BTW, I can do this using autohotkey, but I can't stop it from automatically attempting to search using the input string.

Thanks in advance.


x1 Pro  is more configurable, although to be fair, I evaluated this against x1 a couple of years ago. I'm not up on the new features of copernic.

Good luck!

seems very similar to FileLocaterPro which does not have a tabbed interface, but does support regular expression matching.

Just one wish:

How about a 64-bit build for Windows XP 64?


Keep up the great work

General Software Discussion / Re: Best Python IDE
« on: January 22, 2010, 06:08 PM »
Wing is the best for the simple reason that it is one of the few that allows completion while in debug mode.

it's not cheap, though. On the other hand, it has saved me on more than one occasion when no other combination of tools would work (i.e. catching intermediate Python processes fired by other processes).

Hang in there reckoner -- we all have those weeks where it seems like nothing is going right..

Thanks. Turns out that RTM can't restore tasks, even for Pro members. Since I had to start over anyway, I migrated to ToodleDo, which is not as slick, but more structured than RTM. I am finding it overall more useful since you can examine statistics on your tasks, see them on a calendar, and just generally organize them better in layers using subtasks. Also, ToodleDo support integration so it still works with FARR via the twitter plugin.

Somewhat off topic, but 100% due to my own enthusiasm, I accidentally renamed all tasks in my RTM inbox.  Somehow the Internet connection barfed along the way so I was unable to 'undo' this.  I have sent RTM support an e-mail asking them to restore my tasks.

Has anyone had them restore tasks? I don't know if this is possible or if I should just get on with my life.

I just tried this myself and it actually does work. Are you sure you enabled 'Parse task name for due date' in the FarrMilk options?

You are correct. My mistake.


I am having a tough week.:(

But the new RTM input syntax should work if the FarrMilk option 'Parse task name for due date' is enabled. If someone cares to try please tell me if it works and I'll rename the option to better reflect the new functionality.

I just tried it. Something like:

rtm a this is a new task ^sept11

Does not work although it does work in the web interface.

FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: Alias: Send Twitter updates from Farr
« on: September 08, 2009, 01:05 PM »

Its an alias not a plugin which I think the folder should go into the FARR folder group AliasGroups\Installed and if it doesn't show still restart FARR. Since it is an alias it will not show up in the plug-ins dialog.

EDIT: Also follow the instructions on the first post.

Thanks. You are right. Brain freeze on my part.

Thanks for all the hard work!

I'm having some trouble installing this. I have followed the instructions exactly, but I can't get this plug-in to come up in the plug-ins dialog within FARR.

It just doesn't seem to recognize it. On the other hand, DCupdater seems to recognize it and offer an update. However, even updating using DCupdater doesn't fix this. It is still not present in the plug-ins dialog within FARR.

Thanks in advance.

This is an awesome plug-in! thanks for all hard work.

Is it possible to apply filters such as /dueBefore:Friday, /dueWithin='5 days', etc. These are supported within the built-in search facility inside of RTM's website.

I also notice that

rtm t /thursday doesn't seem to work and that only

rtm t /today
rtm t /tomorrow

Are supported.

Thanks in advance.

Find And Run Robot / stalls during 'search history'
« on: July 09, 2008, 11:10 AM »
I have installed version v2.14.01. The problem is that when I am typing in something the window freezes showing 'searching history' in the status bar. it freezes for sometimes up to 30 seconds. I'm not sure what it's doing. It's itermittent.


thanks for your feedback.

I downloaded TodoTXT and put in in the plugins folder and refreshed the plugins. I'm having the same problem however: td is not recognized as a plugin.

I would say there's something weird with my python installation, but I did reinstall the activestate version and I did install Ruby for the first time to try the above example.

Any other ideas?


I am interested in getting this working with Python. I have followed the instructions exactly and created both a fscript.rb and in the directory

C:\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot\Plugins\FScript

that contains the  following:


However, it only recognizes the fscript.js plugin and not the ruby or python one. I got the ruby script from your example above. I uninstalled and re-installed activestate python and installed ruby, but these had not effect.

I'm getting the feeling that there is something else missing here, maybe some kind of SDK that I don't have installed. I have the NET 2.0 framework installed on my Windows XP(SP2).

Little help?
