from the MS page, the search v4.0 provides a better integration with enterprise search products like sharepoint.
does anybody has some information about this?
how to setup a computer to search both local and sharepoint content?
yes... it's exactly what's I'm looking for...
how to setup the desktop computer to display results from the desktop search, sahrepoint search and windows live results in the same result page?
today the only option available run the search query by opening the browser and running the search in sharepoint which is NOT an integrated search system.
I want to see all the results in 1 place only.
I don't want to index sharepoint content using the desktop search, everything is already indexed in sharepoint.
I came across your post when I was trying to figure it out...it couldn't be more easy:
Start the Microsoft Management Console:
Click Start, and then Run.
In the Open field, enter gpedit.msc and then press ENTER.
Navigate to Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Search.
Apply policies as your organization requires.
In my case I did the above from my local machine. See this link for more details: http://technet2.microsoft.com/windowsserver2008/en/library/2eab146a-8516-4b95-b73c-ca7f980ba2331033.mspx?mfr=true
