Searching PDF Files


New Member
I can not search pdf files using built-in Windows Search. I have Adobe Reader 9.1 installed which comes with the proper ifilter. But, when I go to indexing options it says "Registered IFilter is not found". I even downloaded and installed the standalone IFilter provided by Adobe but still Windows says it is not found.

How do I get Win7 to find and recognize this IFilter?

Never mind, I figured it out. It appears that the Abobe filters do not work on 64 bit Win. I downloaded a special 64 bit filter from Foxit.

Thanks for posting this issue! I had the same problem and now solved it.
