Description peterinscotland 2012-12-10 15:05:54 UTC
Windows Search (64 bit) fails to search content of ODS and ODF files since upgrade to OOo 3.4 - previously it was fine.  This also applies to recent versions of LibreOffice.

In 64-bit Windows 8, the Windows Registry shows the IFilter as C:\Program Files (x86)\ 3\Basis\program\shlxthdl\ooofilt_x64.dll. The file ooofilt_x64.dll does not exist in AOO 3.4.1. It is in OOo 3.3.
Comment 2 peterinscotland 2012-12-10 18:03:31 UTC
Bill - that would certainly be a problem ! :D    

So I'm guessing the issue must be different from that in LibreOffice, which does have that file, and it gets installed.  I'm going to try the new file from the LibreOffice Beta 4 (which is a different size to that in 3.6), otherwise can you point me to a copy of the old OOo file?

Kind regards

Setting our release manager on CC

@Jürgen: look at main/shell/prj/d.lst

..\%__SRC%\bin\x64\shlxthdl.dll %_DEST%\bin%_EXT%\shlxthdl_x64.dll
..\%__SRC%\bin\x64\ooofiltproxy.dll %_DEST%\bin%_EXT%\ooofiltproxy_x64.dll
..\%__SRC%\bin\x64\ooofilt.dll %_DEST%\bin%_EXT%\ooofilt_x64.dll
..\%__SRC%\bin\x64\propertyhdl.dll %_DEST%\bin%_EXT%\propertyhdl_x64.dll

It looks like our windows builds are missing those 64 bit files.

This seems to be controlled by .IF "$(BUILD_X64)"!="" in the makefiles

It seems Win 64 bits needs 64 bits shell extensions, according to the reports.

Confirmed and assigned to Juergen.
Comment 6 jsc 2013-02-11 15:56:03 UTC
I am currently checking how to enable the 64 bit extensions, especially how to build with the express or pro edition...

We can expect that AOO 4.0 will have fixed this problem.

I have uploaded a test build under if you want to give it a try. But keep in mind it is a dev build with complete system integration for testing only.

I am looking forward to get feedback. As mentioned earlier we can expect that AOO will have fixed this problem. 

I need some further investigation to build it with the pro version of the compiler because I am currently missing a 64bit atls.lib.

for me it works quite well now, searched string found in odt as well as ods files
