Search for Files and Folders not working

By Cyberpuppi ·
Hi,

I have the a problem with Advanced Server; Search for Files and Folders does nothing.

Indexing is not running.

I am able to search the server from another computer on the network, which is kinda strange. Any ideas?

I've posted this problem a few times on various groups; people recognize the symptom, but I haven't seen a solution yet.

Thanks!
Curt Kamichoff

Open TweakUI from the control panel.
Go to the "Desktop" tab.
Put a check "Search Results"

I did not have TweakUI installed on this Win2k Advanced Server, so just to check it out I downloaded and installed it.
Under the "Desktop" tab there was no "Search Results" to place a check.
Is there a registry setting for this?

have you (enabled) or (disabled) anything under group policy?
under doain users and computers,right click and go to pproperties of your domain,right click on (admin templates) and view and uncheck (im not sure about this) show only configured policy objects, this should allow you to see all policy`s that have been configured, check for anything thatwill prevent you from doing this search!

hope this helps.

I found the problem and corrected it. Here is the solution:

The following Registry Key missing:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace
{e17d4fc0-5564-11d1-83f2-00a0c90dc849}
