What is the Lite version of Everything?

Post by void » Thu Jul 30, 2020 1:59 am

The Lite version of Everything is the same as the normal multilingual version of Everything, except it has some features removed:
The Command line interface / ES will not work with the Lite version.
The SDK will not work with the Lite version.
Windows accessibility features and screen readers will not work with the Lite version.
Recent change indexing is disabled by default.

Connecting to an ETP server is still supported in the Lite version. Only the hosting of an ETP/FTP/HTTP server is removed.
Command line options are still supported. These are the commands you can pass to Everything.exe.

The Lite version is free. (same as the normal version)

The Lite version uses the MIT license (same as the normal version):

Could you please add a sentence or two on motivation for this new version?

Thanks!

There has been malware going around that is using Everything to create a profile of your system via IPC.

The Lite version of Everything is locked down to prevent this type of attack.

Hi void,
thank you for a reduced Everything version without server functionality!
However... why is in the Enterprise version still the option "Tools -> Connect to ETP Server" if this feature has been removed?
Also in the "Help" menu you can find "Command Line Options" althouth it is not supported in the Enterprise version anymore.
In the installation directory there is the "Everything.ini" file with "allow_http_server=1" and "allow_etp_server=1 - does this make sense?
Regards,
Byobu

Connecting to an ETP server is still supported in the Lite version.
You cannot create an ETP server in the Lite version.

Command line options are still supported.
These are the commands you can pass to Everything.exe.
The Command line options are different to the command line interface.
command line interface support is removed in the Lite version.

The ini options "allow_http_server" and "allow_etp_server" still exist and are ignored by the Lite version.

Renamed the 'Enterprise' version to the 'Lite' version.

Although this 'Lite' version is targeted at enterprise use..

An Enterprise version usually implies more features and usually costs something.
A Lite version should imply a lighter version.

I think it would be better to clarify these points in the first post (why "es.exe" is not mentioned?!) and add explanations at download page at the website as well ("which version should I use?")

Thanks for your feedback Stamimail.

I've updated the first post.

The ini options "allow_http_server" and "allow_etp_server" have been removed from the Lite version in 1.4.1.988 to avoid confusion.
The msi installer may add these settings, but running Everything will remove them.
and add explanations at download page at the website as well ("which version should I use?")
This was done for the en-US pages. I'm still working out what the Lite version is.
I've filled in the Download Lite Installer localization strings with basic translations and I've added what the Lite version is in English to all localized "which version should I use?" pages .
