Hi!

Every time I try to go into the filetypes in the Advanced option dialog WDS crashes on me. I get up a box saying "RUNDLL An exception occurred while trying to run "shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL "srchadmin.dll"".
I used to have WDS 2.5 with some extra IFilters but I removed all that before I installed the beta.

Thanks.
Matt

Matt,

It seems that a few people have run into this problem. I'm going to discuss this with the team to see if we can come up with any solution ideas.

Thanks,

I think I found a possible explanation to this. I tried to install IE7 but it wouldn't let me so I checked the log and it said something about some file extensions it wanted to change but couldn't so I checked my registry and by some unknown reason I had several keys that I couldn't do anything with. The permissions on these had change and I couldn't change anything about them, neither the permission nor anything else. I tried to set myself as owner but that wouldn't work so I reinstalled windows and now WDS3.0 works as it should and I can see the file extensions and it doesn't crash. Why I didn't have permission to these keys I have no idea. I don't know if this is the exact case for everyone but it could perhaps be a hint.

I'm having the same probleme here. Some keys are locked. Any ideas on how to change this without having to reinstall Windows My PC is almost new, I just got it a month ago with OEM WinXP Home installed. Then if I reinstall it would have the same problem. I guess.
Any ideas anyone
Thank you

Hm, I think Microsoft could have mentioned this known problem in the surrounding docs like the download page... I have ten-thousands of files indexed and I need to search in those on a daily basis. First, I didn't like that WDS 3.0 deleted all indexes instead of migrating those (this was not mentioned anywhere). But even worse, I cannot rebuild the indexes due to this bug since I'm unable to tell WDS what files to index.

I especially like Microsoft recent user-friendly efforts but this one is not among those any more.

It looks like this happens with the RTW (final) version of WDS 3.0 as well.

It happened on 2 different PCs here at work that had WDS 2.65 installed. On my PC which did not have any version of WDS installed, this was not a problem, although that could be a coincidence.
