IFilter Tiff

  Asked By: Viral    Date: Nov 12    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1652

I've enabled the IFilter for Tiff files and for sometime everything worked
properly but shortly after it stoped working, that is when I search for a
word within a tif file using SPS seach nothing is returned ( I know that
the word I'm searching for is contained in at least one tif document saved
in my Sharepoint workspace).
I tried the following things, according to microsoft:
* added the default content access account to the local Administrators group
on the server SPS is installed on
* modified the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Contentindex so that
move Mspfilt.dll at the end of the list
* reset the index
every time, after making change, I restarted Microsoft Search service and
in the registry key
2B9}\InprocServer32 the entry "ThreadingModel" is set to "Apartment" and not
to "Both".
The search in SPS is otherwise working correctly.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

I also have been having a similar
fight with the OCR capabilities of the tif  iFilter. I had the same
symptoms as yourself - it started working  (OCR'd about 3 files) then
stopped - although the error log was clear (apart from a time  out)
and the Content source claimed to be 100% indexed.

So I increaseed the Timeout setting on the workspace  to 4000ms and
after that didn't work I edited the registry key  for the max file
size to index (MSPaper setting - refer to SPS Help for location) to
4000 (changed from 1000) and after restarting MSSearch services it
all worked fine (even though none of my documents are over 400k in
size). I have since set  the update to Automatic based on
Notifications and hope that I never need to index the data again
(just in case)
