Search for appcmd.exe on Windows 2008 does not work

Post by jedi001 » Wed Aug 19, 2009 2:01 am

I typed in appcmd.exe in Everything (v 1.2.1.371) but i do not get the correct path of c:\windows\inetsrv\appcmd.exe. It found appcmd.exe in location c:\windows\winsxs\....

The same thing happened when i searched for powershell.exe. Anyone else have this issue? Everything search is unable to find some files or should i say all the instances of a file in windows 2008.

These files are hard links (not physical files).

Only the first instance of the file is shown in "Everything".

For a very useful tool for hardlinks please check:
