yeah, me too, that sucks
should have kept a copy of 10 just in case :-P
same error for me
Keep calm guys... I'm shure Tom will fix it as soon as possible
Not to be impatient or anything, your doing an awsome job Tom, but is there any reason some of us would get a runtime error with build 11, and is there any way we could fix it ourselves.
I get the same issue on start-up. The only thing I noticed is that I kept a later version of one of the OCX's during the install.
This is a great concept... I watch this thread every day.
Sorry about that, the fixed version is now on the front page. If you have any problems, clear your settings in the registry and restart.
But still one little problem:
- on opening txt-files I get the well-known "Runtime error 76 - Path not found (only in Show All window - in the search box it simply doesn't react)
- Office Files (doc, xls, ppt) don't open.
Everything else works just fine
Build #12 is on the front page
Fixed the problem with opening files, I discovered an api that facilitates opening of files for me so I don't have to extract the info from the registry (which obviously doesn't work well). And I also changed the program icon to the spotlight icon (at least one I threw together with icondeveloper)
Wohoo! What a fast bugfix
No the text files do their job - thank you veeery much Tom
that's the beauty of Visual Basic, it's usually so easy to fix problems.
I tried opening every kind of file I could search and so far had no problems
Hmm, maybe I should try to learn VB, too...
Slowly but shure this makes me curious
Which version of VB are you using for this, Tom?
Ah, that explains why we don't need the .Net framework. I've got visual studio.net but don't have a copy of VB6 on my machine, so it would be tough to pitch in. I could help out with hosting capability if needed.
I'm getting the emails under each entry as well, and the drop-down menu cuts off on the right after the right end of the Spotlight box. The Show All capability is sweet... I like where this is headed!
Looks great, but unfortunately it does this, can't think why.
EDIT: And Tom, about your sig, if you think kit kat is clever, try aero, they actually advertise the fact that their chocolate has holes in it.
I just wanted to show you how Spotlight looks on my system... again big thanks to Tom for all the hard work
This makes my Win OS X much more real-mac-like

working on that right now, it's putting mail messages in all of the groups
I am going to upload what I have, it searches mail messages and puts them into their own group. I just cant figure out how to open mail messages so it won't open them, instead it will open the containing folder
great job, tom.
my only real complaint is that i'd really like to be able to use windows picture and fax viewer to open images... it's quick and easy... but i understand, and it doesn't ruin the greatness of everything else for me really.
also, i just noticed that the "close menu when i click off" option seems to no longer work. minor annoyance though, i guess.
if clicking on another window, that window will take focus but it just sends the spotlight box to the back. if i click out of it onto the desktop, stays there.

Great work so far Tom!
BUILD #12 is real beautiful!
and i think to use the PNG image will more perfect~
Want to use TomLapp420's Spotlight, but you use Steve Grenier's Mac OS X skin for WindowBlinds (there is no Spotlight icon in the system tray) ?
Well, here's a tip. Use the "Customize Format" feature of TClock and add 10 blank spaces to the end... that moves everything over so there's a perfect amout of space for TomLapp420's Spotlight.
Okay, I am excited to try this. Downloaded google desktop search, spotlight build 12.
Copy/pasted the URL in the preferences thingy, but whatever I type in that box, I get nothing , while using Google Desktop Search gives me results.
Anything I'm doing wrong?
