Where do I find OLE DB provider for windows search ?

    Question

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to develop an application to search files in Vista with the new properties system . I've seen on 2 websites that you had to use the "OLE DB provider for windows search".

    http://blogs.msdn.com/cheller/archive/2006/06/21/642220.aspx
    and
    download.microsoft.com/download/2/8/e/28e60dcc-123c-4b27-b397-1f6b2b6cb420/WindowsVistaTipsAndTricks.pdf


    I can't find any website to download it , so does anyone know if it is included in something I already have or where I can find it ?

    I already have the Windows SDK with Framework 3.0.

    Thanks for helping me.

    i don't think so. Windows Search shipped 5 years after Windows XP shipped.

     

    Perhaps you meant "Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Indexing Service", but that's not what she meant.

  • The OLE DB provider ships with Windows Vista, or with Windows Desktop Search.
