Advanced Sort Crash

Post by froggie »

Advanced sort is set to (none) - all three options
Click OK, Everything crashes

From the event log:

Code: Select all

Faulting application name: Everything64.exe, version: 1.5.0.1315, time stamp: 0x628f1008
Faulting module name: Everything64.exe, version: 1.5.0.1315, time stamp: 0x628f1008
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x0000000000122214
Faulting process id: 0x3370

Code: Select all

Faulting application name: Everything64.exe, version: 1.5.0.1315, time stamp: 0x628f1008
Faulting module name: Everything64.exe, version: 1.5.0.1315, time stamp: 0x628f1008
Exception code: 0xc000041d
Fault offset: 0x0000000000122214
Faulting process id: 0x3370
Maybe unrelated:
When advanced sort selections are made (extension and size in this case) they are processed for the current search, but if the search is changed they are not honored until advanced sort is re-selected and OK is clicked.

Thank you for the crash report froggie,

This crash will be fixed in the next alpha update.


but if the search is changed they are not honored until advanced sort is re-selected and OK is clicked.
This is currently by design.
Advanced sorting is very slow.
Resorting after each search would be impractical.

I will look into keeping the advanced sort when adding to your search.
Otherwise, when the search changes, Everything will revert to a "fast" sort.


I will also make the advanced sort case insensitive (currently it is case sensitive)

Bu it is confusing - advanced search looks like all the other menu entries, which are honored when the search changes. I set the advanced sort and then entered my search - and wondered why it wasn't working.

Perhaps there could be a note "applies only to current search" or change the OK button to "Sort Now"

Everything will reset to a fast sort when changing the search parameters.

This applies to other slow sorts (for example Date Created or Length), not just the advanced sort.

I will add back the option to always keep the sort order (although, enabling this option is not recommended due to performance concerns)

I will consider adding a note to the advanced sort dialog.
Thank you for the suggestion.

Everything 1.5.0.1316a fixes a crash when setting all advanced sort properties to none.
