Command line option for IPC support

Postby jams » Sun May 21, 2017 7:54 pm

What command line option should I use to to start everything with IPC support (no need for UI) ?
I don't understand the difference between "client-service","service", "svc" and "startup" options.

Thanks for any clarification.

Everything.exe -startup

To hide the Everything system tray icon:
  • Right click the Everything system tray icon and click Options.
  • Click the UI tab.
  • Uncheck Show tray icon.
  • Click OK.

To exit Everything when you are done using IPC:
  • Everything.exe -exit

-client-svc / client service
    This parameter is used to invoke the client service. The client service is for starting Everything on a server without logging in, ie: running the Everything client as a service.

-svc / Everything service
    This parameter is used to invoke the Everything service. The Everything service is used to index NTFS volumes, need by the Everything client when running as a standard user.

-startup
    This parameter is used when running Everything on system startup. It prevents any Everything UI window from being shown.
    Everything will still show in the system tray unless disabled (see above).
