es.exe doesn't work with Everything 1.4 Command Line Options

Post by slbb » Thu Jun 25, 2020 3:44 pm

I have installed ES command line interface (version 1.1.0.18) and Everything Portable (version 1.4.1.969 x64) on windows 10 via Scoop.
The Everything.exe works well with console commands, it shows the GUI and displays the results correctly.
But the es.exe only works well with options:
-r, -i, -w, -p, -n, -s, -h (or --help)

Other options listed on the website http://www.voidtools.com/support/everyt ... interface/
like
-size, -dm, -sort <option>
, etc. don't work for me. Everytime I run es.exe with these options, even I just copy and paste the examples from the support website, it just shows the help-list of es.exe without any search results.
I wonder if I used it the wrong way.
My English is bad. Hope that you can understand what I say.

ES uses the Everything search syntax.

Try these commands in order. At which number do things go wrong?
  1. es.exe -version
  2. es.exe -get-everything-version
  3. es.exe -get-total-size
  4. es.exe -get-result-count
  5. es.exe -n 10 "%windir%"
  6. es.exe -n 10 "%windir%" -name -size
  7. es.exe -n 10 "%windir%" -name -path-column -size
  8. es.exe -n 10 ext:exe -nam[/code]e -path-column -size
  9. es.exe everything.ini -name -path-column -size

Thank you for your reply.
I tried your commands but it didn't work.
After that I find out the problem is I'm using the wrong version of es.exe.
The exact download url of ES on voidtools website is https://www.voidtools.com/ES-1.1.0.18.zip
But the ES I installed by Scoop is download from https://www.voidtools.com/es.zip which is missing the cli.c file. And also the es.exe is smaller.
Maybe the mainfest info of ES from Scoop is outdated. I solve the problem by downloading the currect version.
Thank you any way. ;)
