Compatibility with Windows 8

Post by geniuspaus » Sat Jul 21, 2012 8:27 am

After testing out windows 8, everything still beats Win8's own search tool. But there are random bugs like files can't drag n drop, database wouldn't update anymore, etc.


PS: I'm using Everything-

(I've never used 8, so only guessing...)

> files can't drag n drop

Could that be because Everything is running with Admin privileges, while you are running with less (Limited or whatever it may be called)?

> database wouldn't update anymore

Possibly similar reason?
Where is Everything "installed" (Program Files or something like that)? Where is its database (somewhere under %APPDATA%)?
What if you were to "instal" (put) it & its database somewhere else, a place of your choosing?
