  • Is there any site from Microsoft to introduce FAST ESP 5.3.x. When I search for Enterprise Search Platform on Microsoft site, it always leads me to FAST Search Sever for Sharepoint 2010...

  • Hi Sean,

    The documentation for ESP 5.3 can be found on MSConnect at  If you have an ID there, you can login, click on the Fast connection, click downloads on the left, and and in the items per page section, select All.  Using your browser, search for the esp 5.3 base release software (example: esp_5_3_win32 ), or any of the service packs SP1 through SP4 (example esp_5_3_sp1_win32, esp_5_3_sp2_win32, esp_5_3_sp3_win32, esp_5_3_sp4_win32).  Clicking on the link in MSConnect for any of these will show a list of files, including a file, which contains all the guides available for download.  Download the for the SP4 service pack for the latest guides. 

    If you cannot logon to MSConnect, you can request access with the Fast Customer Service team at and they will send you an invite.  Let me know if you have any questions.
