Search Utility that doesn't install


M

Mark

Hi

I'm looking for a freeware search program which I can place on a CDr
without having to install it to the hard drive. The CD contains
hundreds of DOCs and PDFs in numerous folders and sub folders.

When I use this CD on my work Computer, I want to be able to type in a
word and get a list of all the DOCs with that word in their title.

TIA
Cheers Mark

You don't like Winkey + F (Windows find)? Don't even have to put it on the
CD...

Windows Find is not my prefered choice. The other computer I use at
work runs a locked down version of Win2000 with no obvious way to use
search other than Winkey + F. (It isn't on the menu either). Although
I know how to get to search, other users may not. Hence my search for
recommendations on search utilities.

Hi Mark, I don't know if this one fits all your needs: it is a stand alone,
no registry entries, its folder will be about 1 MB (it requires however the
VB5 runtime files, likely already present in the system).

TrackerV3 is an Advanced File System Explorer. It comes with a Windows
Explorer-like interface but has a far broader scope: you get much more
information and you get it all on the fly, plus variously enhanced
functionality and ease of use, extended file find, reporting features,
instant preview of image, audio, and video files, and a general file viewer
for ASCII and binary files.

Standalone exe file, no install, about 80kb d/l; not sure if it will
run off a CD...

this is strange because i tried
Find->Details->Date Modified After
1/1/04 and also 1/1/2004
and when i click "Find Now" the date changes to 1/1/80

so, it does not allow dates after 31-12-1999 (at least in my computer).
Maybe some regional/date setting issue.

Nor in mine. Moreover, it is not exactly "stand alone" as it adds numerous
registry entries under "software" for "mijenix".

It appears to be part of a larger program named PowerDesk. Perhaps with
that installed too the date would work as it is supposed to...don't know,
not going to find out.
