Sharepoint 2007 indexing pdf files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We are using SharePoint 2007 and need to index our pdf files to make them searchable.  I found an iFilter on adobes website, but it only will index up to Adobe 6.  We do have Adobe 9 installed on the server, but cannot find the driver for the iFilter.  Does anyone know if there is download for the Adobe iFilter version 9?  On their website I can only find a 64 bit version which we cannot use.

    Thank you in advance,

  • Hi Lisa,

    The 32-bit version of the iFilter for Adobe 9 is bundled with Reader.  Install Adobe Reader onto your server to obtain the filter, that's the easiest way I'm afraid.

    Take a look at more detailed steps here.
