test.py:

#create buffers

#show results
for i in range(num_results):

	everything_dll.Everything_GetResultFullPathNameW(i,filename,260)
	everything_dll.Everything_GetResultDateModified(i,date_modified_filetime)

	print("Filename: {}\nDate Modified: {}\nSize: {} bytes\n".format(ctypes.wstring_at(filename),get_time(date_modified_filetime),file_size.value))
Please adjust C:\\EverythingSDK\\DLL\\Everything32.dll to your Everything32.dll path (please make sure to esacpe \ with \\).
