Like xor, I also use Everything and CSearcher for my file searches.
I use Everything for one particular drive which I search frequently. I use CSearcher on my two other drives when something "goes missing". It is indeed very fast and efficient.
I'll just add a trivial point. I didn't like yet another 'magnifying glass icon' for CSearcher. I changed it to a searchlight which works well for a folder display but it reverts to the magnifyer when on the taskbar. Even Resource Hacker won't do it. Never mind! But any ideas?

New version with new feature and fixed some bugs!

Command line has improved a lot, still not finished because I plan to add more features (including restrictions and auto exporting results), but now it will allow a complete search set from command line or a ".bat" file.

As always any suggestions or comments are welcome.

Here it is:
Version 1.5.4.0 (July 5, 2017)
[fix] While searching inside files (content restriction), case insensitive was not functioning correctly missing some results
[fix] PayPal address textbox is now read-only
[new] Command line options that allow the start of an automatic search from command line loading search parameters.

So far the updated version is working great. I don't have something where I could utilize the awesome command-line features that you've added, but I appreciate you adding those.

As to suggestions, I have two rather minor UI changes for:

  • When the window is collapsed via the arrow box. It just doesn't look quite right: (image link: http://i.imgur.com/o0KAOx0.png )

  • The Options menu isn't behaving the way I'd expect, cutting off the numbers (I typed 33 here):

    Image

(I'm in Win7x64 in this if that helps).

My response lacks thorough testing as a lot of the real world work I've been doing is with proprietary formats like Office and PDF, so a lot of the searching I was able to initially test this program with have been handed off to some other tools. I will try to test it with text files whenever it comes up.

Thanks for spotting that!

I have tested a lot CSearcher in several of my computers and some coworkers I have, many of them were Windows 7x64, my computer where I code and test CSearcher is Win7x64!
I never seen that UI bug!

I'm thinking that probably you have one of this things:
- Changed windows default font?
- Changed font size?
- Changed font scaling? maybe to 125% or 150%?
- Using any 3rd party tool to interfere with Windows UI?

Sorry for the slow reply on this. You were right: Windows scaling is set to 125% and I was using Windows Classic Theme (basically looks like Windows 2000). Not using any custom fonts or 3rd party UI tool.
