CLI for 1.5?

Post by TokyoMike » Tue Jan 11, 2022 3:21 am

Hi There - I use a launcher called Ueli that leverages the es.exe file to allow me to do Everything searches in their UI. This is not working with the old CLI and 1.5 of Everything. Probably obvious, but I wanted to check and see if you believe it "should" work, or we are still waiting for a new es.exe?

Thanks!

Everything 1.5 is still in alpha.

Everything 1.5 alpha runs in a separate named instance to avoid conflicting with an existing stable Everything 1.4 install.


If you are not using Everything 1.4, please try disabling the Everything 1.5 instance:
  • In Everything, from the File menu, click Exit.
  • Run Notepad as an administrator.
  • In Notepad, open your Everything.ini in the same location as your Everything.exe
  • Change the following line:
    alpha_instance=1
    to:
    alpha_instance=0
  • Save changes and restart Everything.
-or-

Please try the ES -instance command line option:

ES.exe -instance 1.5a
