just to add what others have said earlier.. for my Win7 64-bit, i used this guide to launch Farr and Everything (version 1.2.1.451a) in admin mode without UAC prompt and TinyEv just works! :)

it is easy for a plugin to tell farr how many results to show max and overide the farr default -- maybe a nice option to add to the next version of the plugin.

Bumping for solution to this. Everything is search tool, and limiting it to just 10 semi-randomly chosen results is just pointless.

i think it would be better if the script would start up everything as I dont want it running in the background previously as it uses 18mb

How do I use regex in FARR with Everything?

I know Everything is hooked into FARR because I use the alias "ev" and typing in a search query results in a lot of matches.

From the first post, it says to use the $ to start the regex. I type in "ev $findandrunrobotsetup" and I get the match for my original FARR installer.

But when I typed in "ev $findand*setup", nothing comes up. I expect the wildcard to display me the original installer.

$findand*setup

Your "regex" is wrong.

$findand.*setup

is what you need. It'll find findandsetup and all other combinations of findand <everything> setup.

Hi,
Is there any way to launch the main Everything GUI (with the search term I've already typed into FARR)? Or to see the next "page" of results?

Eric

P.S. Thanks for the mirror, Robyer.

Original download is offline, but akx was nice enough to host the source code and precompiled version at github:

Hi Buffet, see the post 3 up above yours for the new download links.  I'll fix the first post to have the correct links too.

Just reporting that the FARR plugin Farr_TinyEv v0.9.5 works fine with the current latest versions of FARR and Everything, and with both running as "portable".    :Thmbsup:

This is:
  • under Win10-64 Pro.
  • with FARR set to run as Administrator, which seems to help it run best/quickest.
  • having frigged a DCUpdater redirect file for Farr_TinyEv, so that DCUpdater includes it in its status report cataloguing the installed Plugins.

When running a search query in 'everything' which results in more than 50 results, and then running the same exact search query in FARR+TinyEV with "ev " in front of it, gives the same outcome except for the amount of search results always being limited to a maximum of 50 results. This in itself is a problem, because I need all matching results, not just the 50 'best' results.

Though the real problem I'm having right now with this limitation is this: When I use the "content:" query feature of 'everything' in FARR+TinyEV to search through file contents, it always returns 0 results, when 'everything' actually does find results for this exact search query (without "ev " in the query of course). I did some trial and error on this in FARR+TinyEV and found that when I keep on artificially adding extra search terms before I write the "content:" keyword, such that the total amount of search results gets reduced to 49 or less, first, and then I append the extra 'content:"<searchword(s)>"', then I get all the same results in FARR+TinyEV as I get in 'everything'.

In reality of course I don't know which files contain the contents I'm looking for, so I have no way of reducing the search results to below 50 first to make the 'content:' search query work properly. Except of course if one would search through all files in batches of 50 files, but let's not call that a solution. I also tried changing the TinyEV parameters in its .ini file to all allowed values, but to no avail. Same with pretty much every setting I tried changing in FARR, but the search results just keep on getting capped to a maximum of 50 results, which I believe is the source of the issue of the "content:" keyword not returning any results when there should be matches.

Could anyone think of a solution, a workaround or an alternative to this ?
The original creator also posted his Source code.. maybe it could be as 'easy' as changing that value to a very high number and recompiling ?
Thanks.

Great help received from the creator of the plugin akx about the issue!

The GIT project was updated now with a msvc_compile.bat file which allowed me to successfully build the .dll with the MSVC Command Line. Couldn't get passed the "IPC Service not running" status-line error in FARR, when compiling with Visual Studio before..
And this line can be adjusted to allow for more search results to get passed through from Everything to FARR TinyEV.
Already a great leap forward, though TinyEV still returns "No results" after a couple of seconds when Everything actually has to work on the querry for a lot longer.. Hopefully another update to come to also allow for long/slow content searches to get passed through to FARR TinyEV. :Thmbsup:
