Can not open any drive from Search Everything...context menu

Post by David » Wed Mar 18, 2009 1:41 am

Unable to open c:\, d:\, e:\ etc... from the Search Everything... context menu.

This problem is caused by CommandLineToArgvW converting the trailing \ into a "

To fix the problem:
  • Click Start -> Run.
  • Enter Regedit.
  • Open HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\Search Everything...\command
  • Remove the trailing " from the (Default) value.
For example, if your (Default) value looks like:

Code: Select all

"C:\Program Files\Everything\everything.exe" -filename "%1"
Change it to:

Code: Select all

"C:\Program Files\Everything\everything.exe" -filename "%1
  • Exit Regedit.
This problem has been fixed for the next release of "Everything".
