Everything HTTP Server gives 404 error when trying to download some already opened files

Postby kubinec12 » Fri May 05, 2017 3:00 pm

Hello.

I'm using Everything 1.4.1.867b and windows 7 x64.
I run Everything http server, downloads allowed. I access server, say, from the same computer via Firefox and download files. When trying to download some types of files opened in 3rd party program I get 404 error. These files types are (besides others) MS Office files and sqlite files. Some other types of files: pictures, plain text are downloaded normal. And when I try to copy opened MS Office or sqlite files by using Windows explorer it does it well.

As downloading opened files is important for me there are some questions:
1. Why Everything http server cannot give me that files while Windows explorer can access them easily?
2. How to circumvent this?

Thanks in advance for assistance and sorry for my poor English.

Thanks for the bug report.

Everything was failing to open files already opened for writing.

Fixed in Everything 871b.
