[FIXED] Outlook ext:msg | View - Preview | Everything 1.4 <-> 1.5

Post by tuska »

Hi,

In Everything 1.4.1.1011  (x64) I can get previews for files with file extension .MSG.
In Everything 1.5.0.1269a (x64) this is not possible.

Could you please check/adapt this?
Thank you!

Thank you for the bug report tuska,

I'll have a fix for you to test in the next alpha update.

The issue is most likely caused by Everything 1.5 using an INPROC_SERVER for the preview handler. (when the handler is x86)

I have completely rewritten the preview pane for Everything 1.5.0.1270a.

Please let me know if you can view .msg previews with this version.

As I have no Outlook installation I searched for a free msg preview handler
and found this one:

Works fine here under Windows 10 with Everything 1.5.0.1270a (x64)
The installer registers the new preview handler automatically.

Thank you very much for your endeavours! :)

The preview for Outlook files (*.msg) works with Everything 1.5.0.1270a (x64) and (x86),
even if the total path is >259 characters.

Nice find!

Throughout the forum are a lot of file previewers mentioned. Would it be useful to create a separate topic where all these previewers ccan be listed?

Yes, this would be useful.
It may also contain references to tools which manage or display preview handlers.

Everything 1.5.0.1271a improves the preview pane some more..

Not relevant to this thread, but I just wanted to make a note somewhere.

No more beeps when using the Alt key from the preview pane.
Everything will now remember the focus in the preview pane when alt tabbing.
Images no longer want the tab key press.
