RE: Windows Search fails to create catalog
I have the same problem.
Has anyone found a solution? May have to resort to Google's search.

Re: Windows Search fails to create catalog

I have exactly the same problem. If I use the control panel to try to
access index settings, all the options are grayed out. If I use the
services console, "Windows Search" is not running. If I attempt to start
it, I get an error message saying it could not create a catalog.

THen a pop-up appears saying "Could not start the Windows Search . . ..
refer to "service-specific" error code - 2147218141"

I did find a very simple procedure for "Resetting the Index" at
http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/85...h-service.html

I performed the procedure. There were no complications. All the
dialogs etc were reassuring. But the problem is still there.

I wonder if the problem is more the "catalog" rather then Windows
Search or the Index.
