Preview bug?

Post by ccaprani » Mon Sep 11, 2017 6:37 am

Hi, been using Everything for years - love it - thank you!

The recent 1.4 update with preview is awesome too. However, recently I'm finding that each search seems to instance a new process of the appropriate previewing software. So I end up with lots of:
  • acrobat.exe
  • winword.exe
in the task manager. I think these are from double-clicking a document in Everything to open it. Worse, acrobat.exe seems to have an infinite loop of some description, brought on by whatever calls Everything is making to it (through COM?). As a result, fairly quickly all my cores are eaten by acrobat.exe processes spinning wildly out of control!

Final minor irritation, is the first double click (to open a file) always opens the (F2) rename box. Cue, ESC and then another double click.

Thanks for the bug report.

I'll investigate the issue, so far I'm not seeing increased instances of acrobat or winword.

Everything uses the COM to show previews.

Everything may help with the double click issue.
