Help with install problem

Post by RTenebruso » Mon Jan 08, 2007 12:45 pm

I installed V3. Have XP SP2

Now AFR crashes with nearly every search. When no crash, it will not find all instances; e.g. will find "ERR" in 14 out of 84 files. Even then, very slow.

Previous version worked great!

Help. I desperately need this to work today or this evening.

Which types of files do you search for? Maybe you have to stitch off Preview odule. It may significantly increase search speed. Go to main menu - Action - File - Options - Preview - and uncheck "Make Preview" option. Maybe you can send us ( a sample file and your default.cfg file.

Normally version 3.0 is as fast as previous versions.
Kind regards,

Thank you.

Before I heard from you, I uninstalled V3 and then had same problem with V 2.3. I then uninstalled that and manually removed any remaining references to AFR from Reigistry.

I then reinstalled V3. It worked great, as it had before.

Only after reading your reply tonigh, did I get up the courage to try V3 again. I installed it. It appears to work wonderfully.

I do not know what I did to fix it; I guess I got lucky.

Thank you, again.
