Description gbpacheco 2008-12-01 01:12:46 UTC
I have many text files in ODT format and I search their content through the
Windows Explorer Search (using the "A word or phrase in the file" textbox). I
have Windows XP SP3.

After the installation of 3.0.0, the search for content in ODF files in Windows
Explorer doesn't work. In the 2.4.1 version, this search works fine.

In my search, the only approximate reference about this question was found here:

As I understand, the ooofiltproxy.dll is responsible for the identification of
ODF files but the path is wrong in the Windows Register, correct? This problem
will be solved in 3.0.1?

what has been replaced (without having been wiped from HD) by "Ooo 3.0.0 (DE)
Multilingual version German UI WIN XP: [OOO300m9 (Build9358)]". Additionally I
have installed "Ooo 3.1 Multilingual version German UI WIN XP: [DEV300m36 (Build
When I try to find a word of the document contents with WIN Explorer search, the
words will only be found in the PDF exports I have from my documents, but not
within the OOo documents.

Even with the fix of issue 96218 in cws native209 the search won't work.
@ tm: Please have a look and assigne to the related developer.

this issue really deserves fixing.
i think it should be considered at least P2 and i suggest to add it to the 
3.0.1 stoppers metaissue.

The search doesn't succeed if the file is within the "My Documents" folder.

This is a different issue -> #i104084
