Mouser, I tried 2.238.01 beta portable in Virtualbox Win10 again now.
I confirm that this works:
- variables %FARRWINLEFT% %FARRWINTOP% %FARRWINWIDTH% %FARRWINHEIGHT% in results
- adding ICON="web.ico" or /ICON=web.ico to show a custom icon
I ran into issues with the quotes in filepaths and parameters. Will post details and tests in the specific forum post about that issue

New version uploaded which hopefully fixes the problem; my recent code changes to better handle quoted arguements was stripping quotes when using the explore here option with a custom exe.

Something is broken with the latest version, some of my aliases have stopped working as intended.

So I have an alias like this:
1000>>>Search with Everything>->dolaunch C:\Program Files\Everything\Everything.exe -search "$$1">+>(.*)\s\s$

When I trigger the alias, I get the everything command line options window, instead of the search results. It behaves like I executed just "Everything.exe -search", so the quotes and the $$1 is missing.
I have other examples but this is the simplest one.
It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious.

skajfes, can you redownload the new version and see if it fixes it? (i think it should).
The problem was that I recently rewrote my parsing of commandline arguments to respect double quoted arguments and it seems in the process i messed up the handling of multiple arguments (it was sending them in reverse order).  Should be fixed now.

Sorry, I kind of missed the beta version so I didn't test it before.

Thanks for reporting the problem so quickly -- at least you saved me some (further) embarrassment!

Website not updated properly yet, it seems.

Further now, Win10 is also getting paranoid on "FindAndRunRobotSetup.exe" installer !

So I have an alias like this:
1000>>>Search with Everything>->dolaunch C:\Program Files\Everything\Everything.exe -search "$$1">+>(.*)\s\s$

How is this working? Do you get the results in FARR? That would mean indexing on FARR exists!!!!

No indexing in FARR. The alias is triggered by appending two spaces the end of a search string. The alias opens everything.exe with the search query from FARR.

I use it when searching for things in FARR, if it doesn't provide a result, just append two spaces, same query is then searched in Everything

Ok! Looks a good idea still, will give it a try someday... or hopefully mouser gets inspired and implement indexing that would be handy at least for a 1st stage search ;)

Launch file, Keep FARR opened and Continue searching! - "ctrl+dbl click" launches the file and keeps FARR opened but it should also keep populating results insead of stopping further search!

@mouser, maybe a good idea to be included on the next version? ;)

Minor beta release:

Version 2.250.00 - Mar 8, 2020
  • [BugFix] Using #filecontents with empty file caused FARR to lock the file so it could not be written outside of FARR; thanks Nod5!
  • [Feature] You can now specify %search% in custom toolbar buttons to send the contents of the search edit box to a tool.

For me the beta did not fix the 'Explore here' problem - the path still gets truncated (I am using Directory Opus as the explorer).

Can you elaborate a little on what's happening and what should be happening?

Sorry for the late response! I forgot about this topic...

The 'Explore here' menu item from the right-click menu on a searched item lists the correct path, but when used, it gets truncated, e.g. 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Gaming\freepiebeta\' sends me to the folder 'C:\Program' in Directory Opus. The menu item 'Copy target path' provides the correct path to the item. My version is v2.250.0.

Are you using a custom file explorer on the "External Tools and Plugins" options tab?
If so try double quoting the $$1, like:

Great, Jabberwock, it's the exact question I'm going to ask :)

Btw mouser, is there anyway I can change the font of FARR?
