  • Fixed: Fixed some known issues.

Good improvements, but I still can’t restrict what drives to search for.
D: some_search
It always finds all entries regardless of the drive.
This is very annoying if you have backup drives with the same files and dirs as C:
The Ignore list is no option as there are not only backup files on this drive.

listary-core.exe Unable to ProcessPrng function to bcryptprimitives.dll

Windows 7 version 7601 Service Pack 1

You can use D:\ some_search to restrict the drive.

Sorry, starting from Listary V6, Windows 7 and XP are no longer supported. Some versions of Listary V6 might still run on Windows 7 and XP, but we cannot guarantee that every update will be compatible.

Thanks, that works.

I can confirm the issue too.

Maybe please also add download link for old versions in case current beta is crashing.

The only link I found is https://www.listary.net/download/beta/Listary.exe

I want to download the release just before the latest.


Listary Stable

The listary 5 is still snappier then listary 6. The listary is stable but still slower than version 5. For me, all beta versions get slower with time. Then all of a sudden, listary stops functioning (doublt Ctrl does not work). If I try to right click listary in the taskbar, it gives a black window. Finally, I have to endtask and end listary.
I have gone back to the stable version…Lots of improvement required in listary 6…No doubt the functionality is better than version 5

This issue was fixed in V

Could you specify which part is slow? Is it slow to start, slow in displaying search results, or something else?

You could try version, as a bug in version 69 might cause crashes.

The same issue still persists with
