The best launcher ever. I've been using this for 10 years.

Yay, first official update in five years! Still my favorite launcher!

Nevermind, I was not waiting long enough for the indexing to finish. It seems a bit longer with windows 10. Last 64 bits version work fine.

Thanks freakazoid but I am already using this version and nothing seems to fix my problem.It could be an option causing this freezing behavior.

Carl - I am using Executor on Windows 10 and it's working fine for me.

I'm using Executor 0.9.9 (Build 18) (64-bit) though. You can find a link here:

See if that fixes your problems.

Is anyone using executor with windows 10? I have been a long time user and executor has always worked great for me. It was working great with windows 8 but for some reason it is slow in windows 10 64 bits.
There is sometime a delay for the indexed items to appear. Both the 32 bits and 64 bits version has the problem... Is there something I can do to make it work. Executor is quite important for me and I even consider downgrading my windows if I have to.
Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.

Best launcher ever. Puts to shame an other similar software developed and sold commercially. Super flexible, configurable, customizable and enjoyable. I really hope the developer will keep supporting this software. The setting windows UI layout could be refreshed, but you rarely have to use it anyway. THANK YOU

Lightning fast after it indexes. Indexed over 1k folders in a portable directory quickly. Interesting to see if this further develops.
