Everything v1.4.1.1004 Updated

billon on 19 Jan 2021
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 19 Jan 2021
  • Suggested by Drutt

Everything is a powerful search tool that locates files and folders by file name instantly, and includes an FTP and Web server interface. It also can search files by their contents. Unlike Windows search, Everything initially displays all files and folders on your computer. You simply type in part of the desired file name to limit what files and folders are displayed instantly. The more you type, the more specific the list becomes.

Note that the instant-search capability only works on NTFS/ReFS-formatted drives and only uses file and folder names in a file index. The program can separately catalog non-NTFS/ReFS and network servers for searching on a schedule.

In case it does not remembers sort order, you have to edit 2 lines in Everything.ini:

sort=Type
always_keep_sort=1

17.0.1 Beta is now in Download section of web site.

Slimjet is not portable to any useful degree. Don't even try it. I lost all of my extensions and (all?) settings, browsing session. (Bookmarks, history remained...)

I didn't even move it I just reinstalled Windows, then started it from the same place (same path) and it erased all that stuff... (I checked in the backup that the extension files are there...)

nima_amin on 2020-05-21 22:12

The problem avada describes still persists in version 26. I used Slimjet portable on my Windows 7 PC with no problems. In February I moved to a new PC with Windows 10, copied Slimjet from the old PC on a USB stick, and from there to the new PC , started it and all extensions and settings were gone. Only the profiles and bookmarks were kept.

Flashpeak's "support forum" unfortunatel doesn't give any support but keeps claiming if you copy the user folder from one version into the other it would work. Lie! Behaviour is the same as that described by avada and me above.

To make things worse: in version 26 it is no longer possible to print content as PDF using PDF-printers such as e.g. Adobe Acrobat or PDF Creator! Flashpeak claims to have no plans to fix that bug.

Some recent plugins for IrfanView 4.54-32bit no longer work under XP,
specifically WebP.dll 4.54-32bit...:-(

IrfanView's developer Irfan Skiljan kindly suggested a workaround for the broken webP.dll Plugin under Win XP :

IrfanView 4.54
+ webP.dll 4.51 Plugin (Link date 20/02/2018; Size 204,288 bytes)
+ Win XP
= eternal bliss...;-)

Cornflower on 2020-10-22 10:31

Many plugins were also updated in this version, so IrfanView recommends updating them if you update IrfanView itself.

Solved: the download on the portable freeware site does not include a file "todolist.exe.manifest" that is required to run on XP. If you have an existing earlier version of todolist, it will have a file "todolist.exe.xp.manifest". Dan the developer advises to rename that to "todolist.exe.manifest". Seems to work.

IanFromBarrie on 2017-01-27 22:54

The download contains the "todolist.exe.xp.manifest" file, and renaming that to "todolist.exe.manifest" works

@IanFromBarrie

Thanks for that info. I was wondering why it wasn't working with XP. Renaming todolist.exe.xp.manifest to todolist.exe.manifest worked.

Currently the 32-bit version actually points to the 64-bit version (sourceforge).
The correct download link for the 32-bit version is:
https://managedway.dl.sourceforge.net/project/smplayer/SMPlayer/20.6.0/smplayer-20.6.0-win32.exe
