Configuring Foxit 64bit PDF ifilter

Adir Ron has posted on his blog the instructions for making the Foxit 64bit PDF ifilter work with Sharepoint 2007.

Taking from his article is the following reg hack instructions on registering the ifilter with the sharepoint search.

  1. After you install the Foxit, add a pdf extension in MOSS search settings
  2. Open regedit, locate [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office Server\12.0\Search\Setup\ContentIndexCommon\Filters\Extension\.pdf]
  3. Change the default value to {987f8d1a-26e6-4554-b007-6b20e2680632} . (You can get this handler addin value using Citeknet ifilter explorer)
  4. Cmdline: net stop osearch
  5. Cmdline: net start osearch
  6. Do a full crawl.

(PS Adir, love the MOSS club tag line on your blog.)

(PPS, To everyone else Adir Ron has some great articles on sharepoint search on his blog.)
