Included with this release is some of my own reg entries to pre-configure a few things, added entries to the shell menu and configured ONE blank database to get you started - but it is only set to scan your C drive, so you will need to edit those settings to suit yourself post-install.
Shortcuts will be added to Program Menu\Utilities and All Users\Start Menu. The native uninstaller for this program does not so a clean uninstall, so I wrote a full inf uninstaler for it instead.
Please note, this is a stable beta release which has sorted most of the bugs in previous beta builds and I haven't found any problems with this verion.

This program saves names of all files in your hard drives to file database. After that you can locate files. Very fast.
This program works like updatedb and locate in Unix systems. Win32 based locating program also included. Program works with Windows 98/ME/NT4/2000/XP (and with Windows 95 if Internet Explorer 3 is installed).
Before you can use program you must create file database. Run updatedb.exe or updtdb32.exe if you have Windows'95 or Windows NT. You can also create database by using Locate32.
Locate has support for perl compatible regular expression and implemented using PCRE library.
