# 0Adding searching of PDF file contents from Windows search

Win­dows 7 (and Vista) include a search sys­tem that can search not just file names, but the con­tents of files.  Microsoft Office doc­u­ments are all sup­por­ted by default, how­ever PDF files are not.  Adobe provide a plu­gin which is included with Adobe Read­er 9 (and new­er) which enables this func­tion­al­ity.  How­ever a 64bit plu­gin is not included.  Adobe now provide ver­sion 9 of their iFil­ter for x64 64bit sys­tems which is freely downloadable
