FARR gets stuck/hung - please help
« on: September 29, 2023, 12:25 AM »
Hi,

If a folder contains shortcuts to network folders, that are offline/disconnected, then FARR gets stuck. And I have to force exit and restart  :(
Any way to fix this issue, please?

I'm already setting FARR to not resolve shortcuts, but it might still be trying to do so?

Edit: This behavior does not occur on other Launchers: Executor, Ueli, Keypirinha

I don't know the cause of the issue you're experiencing. Let's see if @mouser sees this thread.

As a temporary workaround, if you don't have a lot of such network folder shortcuts, you could try to restrict them from search results. You could also temporarily set up a FARR alias to list and launch the targets of such shortcuts.

Thanks. Yes, I'm having to exclude those right now, using the 'Exclude subdirectories' option under 'Search Directories':

Even if I navigate to that path directly, using TAB, it gets hung/stuck :(
So, I've excluded for now. Hopefully can be fixed - would really be thankful  :up:
