New desktop search plugins

by Matt 21. December 2006 18:56

Microsoft have recently released a bunch of plugins for Windows Desktop Search. And these support WDS 2.x on XP, 3.x on XP and WDS on Vista, which is a bit nifty.

From Brandon Paddock's blog:

Today we released updated Add-ins for Windows Desktop Search.  Most notable among the changes is that they now support Windows Vista.  This includes the UNC Protocol Handler which allows you to index remote network shares (without using Offline Files).

Add-in for Files on Microsoft Networks (UNC and mapped drives)

Add-in for Internet Explorer history

Add-in for .msg files

Add-in for Lotus Notes

I'm not going to use the .msg or Lotus Notes versions, but the network share one looks interesting, and I'll definitely give the IE history one a go. I'll let you know if it turns out useful (I'll have to update my list of programs what I run).

And it appears that Adobe Reader 8 includes a PDF filter that works on Vista (or WDS 3 on XP). Unfortunately, it looks like you can only get it bundled with the reader software, and I'm not sure I'm ready to trust Adobe to have built something that isn't bloated and overweight, especially when you see how lightweight FoxIt Reader is. And I'm not a big PDF user. Maybe I'll give it a go. Install it. Take one for the team.

Between me and my husband we've owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I've settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
