PDF files not being indexed in Vista
Hi
I am using Windows Vista SP1 (32 bit) and have Adobe Creative Suite 3 Master
Collection (including Arcobat Professional 8.1.2 and Reader). I believe this
includes the ifilter for searching PDFs.

However, the contents of PDF files are not indexed, only the file name is
indexed

I have tried rebuilding the index but this did not fix the problem. Indexing
service is on for the disk being indexed. All other file types are indexed
OK.

If I go to control panel select indexing options, select advanced, select
file types. The entry for PDF is grayed out but is set to Index properties
and file contents. Only the PDF file type is grayed out in the list.

However, contents are not indexed. I can only search on PDF file name. How
do I enable searching of PDF contents please?

Hi,

Seems like it should be indexing the content.
Have you tried to reinstall Adobe Creative Suite?
