msg registered IFilter not found RRS feed

  • Question

  • Running W10 & Office 365

    I have a few files that are msg type - these are not being indexed by WDS. On the Indexing Options File Types the msg box is ticked and Registered Ifilter is not found.

    I have downloaded, from a Microsoft site the msg Ifilter and installed which reported a success. The indexing option still report the same message. I have ran scanpst - re-index WDS, un-installed msg Ifilter, re-booted, Ran CCleaner on the registry, re-installed the Ifilter AND still i have the same problem.

    Please any new ideas.

  • Hello,

    The MSDN, TechNet and Expression Library Feedback forum is to "Help improve the Library Experience in MSDN, TechNet and Expression by providing feedback on features, bugs, look and feel or by just providing suggestions". This is not a support forum.

    I'd ask in the Windows 10 IT Pro forums.
