Does frn: Function Work on XP

Does the frn: Function Work on XP?

(I'm thinking it does not.)


And while where here, frn: is "specific" to a particular volume (drive letter, if you will), in that the same frn: number may exist on different volumes, & returned results may also be affected by (limitations) is Everything's hardlink following.

Is that correct?

The frn: function only works on Vista or later as it uses OpenFileById.

The frn: function does work on XP for folders, eg:
frn:0x0005000000000005
-will always list the root NTFS folder.

Currently, frn: will only list one random hard link.

What is in development:
Support for XP for files.
Listing all hard links that match the frn.
fileid lookup support (where the sequence number is not known) eg: frn:0x5 instead of frn:0x0005000000000005
