Is it necessary to initialize ET after each Windows startup? If yes (it seems so): can the script handle this for me?

ET should be started with Windows:
Open main Everything.exe window > Tools > Options > General > Start Everything on system startup

OK.

I noted when I set ET to "run as administrator" then XY needs to be run as administrator as well, else the script does not work.

Yes, after every system startup/reboot ET must be "reinitialized". The script could do this, but it would add a great delay upon first run (starting service and scanning all the MFT is not instant). Having it loaded by Windows itself upon startup is the better choice imo, and that's exactly what I do.
Don, I don't know if you work as admin or not. In either case you shouldn't face the problem you describe. Only the "scanning" part (the service) of ET needs to run as admin. The GUI should be run with the same privileges of the rest of your applications.
In fact, in Startup I have two batch files:

Code: Select all

C:\path\everything.exe -svc
and

Code: Select all

C:\path\everything.exe -startup
The first one will trigger UAC (I'm on a limited account), the second one not. Then whatever file I search and run is executed with the privileges of my account, because ET GUI itself is at a limited privilege level. Here http://forum.voidtools.com/viewtopic.ph ... 72c80c5a9b you can find more info. Please let me know if you manage to work with ET and XY without any strange privilege discrepancy.

Oh good! I added a link to the forum of ET which should explain a bit better the structure of the whole thing.
Maybe people are scared by the beta tag...

I only briefly gave it a try before getting distracted by their SDK but was wondering why everything Everything was needing to be run as admin to work.

Reading that post you linked to made me realize that the portable version won't install the service which explains my issues.

Now I'm looking forward to playing with this, but time, not that it's beta, is the limiting factor. ;)

I finally get time to try out the script! This script is great! Thanks a lot! I also started using FileLocator so that script by highend and your script are now permanent on my script to use list! Thank you very much for these scripts. They're just wonderful and especially to heavy Everything users! :appl:

EDIT: Now if only Es.exe somehow supports the use of Everything's ETP server. Or HTTP server...

I'm working on a script to turn regular days in 72-hour days (48 isn't enough), but XYplorer apparently doesn't support it. Should I report it as a :bug: ? :mrgreen:

Thank you! Regarding the web interfaces you should ask David. I can't help very much in such field because I use ET locally only.

Doable, but due to the possible use of invalid characters the name might be different from the actual query. For example, if you have ", how should they be escaped?

EDIT: no, for a very simple reason. The search results would contain the paper folder itself. This until Don makes XY natively support PF encoded in UTF-8 without BOM.

What's so bad about it?

In Everything I could exclude the Paper folder, then it wouldn't appear anymore.

It breaks simplicity. Exclusion wouldn't be elegant. There's another solution, but it adds intermediate steps which slow down the execution. You just need to wait till Don fixes that (PF phase 2).

Plus, there's always the problem of escaping certain characters like *, / and " (and more). I could replace them with underscores, but then the name of the PF would lose part of its meaning. Same if I simply removed them. The only thing in the List that can show any characters are the Tags columns (and with Tags I mean the canonical Tags, the Extended Tags and the Comment).
