Hi Enrico,

seems to be working fine here.

One idea: wouldn't it be good to package the grep binary to the installer
(and if possible somehow set the preferences to the location where it was
installed) so find in files works out of the box? Right now the message you
get when trying to use find in files is:

 search_find_in_files: spawn_with_callbacks() failed: CreateProcess()
failed: The system cannot find the file specified.

which isn't the most user-friendly message and I guess many people will
interpret it as "find in files doesn't work on Windows".
