Re: Windows SWISH-E

That did the trick, so I am now able to do command line searches. 

However when I use the search page in example/index.htm the machine locks up. 

The code for query.htm doesn't seem to have errors.

Is there another example of what is required for a search somewhere?

It should work with mounted network shares and UNC paths.  Try without
using any wildcards in the folder names.  You may have trouble with
folder* and similar.

Windows so-called "POSIX API" has some very weird limitations when
dealing with network mounted shares and UNC paths.  In some cases you
must have a trailing \ and in others you must never have a trailing \.
I've tried to deal with most of those cases but wildcards weren't on my
mind.  I have no clue how a wildcard might react.
