file find - searching .EXE archives

Postby yerrbjr » Fri Jul 02, 2010 9:48 am

In file finder, when "Search Inside Archives" is checked, I'd like to be able to exclude self-extracting files (.EXE extension).
This would considerably speed up my most common searches.

(this request was made previously in email; I'm posting it here to make sure it doesn't get lost )

In file finder, when "Search Inside Archives" is checked, I'd like to be able to exclude self-extracting files (.EXE extension).

I have actually implemented this in the latest V12 Preview which can be downloaded from:

http://www.fileviewer.com/Beta.html

The Advanced tab of the File Finder now has an option at the bottom to Search the following extensions ...

This contains a list of archive extensions that V will search. If you don't want to search EXE files, simply remove EXE from the list.

Regards,
Charles.
