PDF document contents are not indexed by Windows indexer

By | February 16, 2017

You may have wondered if Windows indexer can index the content of your PDF files – yes it can! In fact it should be, and if it is failing to do so it is likely you will see this in ‘advanced’ section of ‘indexing options’. The reason being that a component provided by Adobe is missing. You will see ‘Registered IFilter is not found’

How to fix it – install the missing component and rebuild your index.
