Search Server 2010 Express - Query string with characters like - or & return an error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    we are using Search Server 2010 Express search.asmx webservice for searching trough files and other data for our web application.

    Search is working fine and we get the results back we want only when a user types something like 'test-test' or 'test&test' the search crashes. It returns the error:


    What can I do about this? Executing this query trough the Sharepoint search page works fine. Do we need to filter these characters or encode them or something?


    Thanks for your help!
