Now this is a really useful download for those of you who want to be able to index the content that is on a shared drives, or FAT drives. It's a free download from Microsoft.com, and after it is installed, go to the Start Menu, type "Index" and one of the results should be:
Click on "Indexing Options" and from there, you should be able to go to 'Advanced', and within the new dialog box, should be an option to add a UNC location:
Easy Peasy! :-)
Enjoy searching across your networks!
Does it programatically not display UNC results in the Start Menu search? I see network stuff if I open a search window, but if I use the Start Menu Search I don't get any results.
It certainly should display them in the start menu, as they are indexed on your local machine - that is a strange one.
Is the problem still occuring now?
FYI: this app doesn't work in 64bit Ultimate. In fact, it seems many add-ons and app don't, as if 64 bit versions of Vista are just unwanted step children.
I agree that there are a number of apps won't run on x64 Vista, but is that the problem isn't Microsoft in this case. x64 Vista has been available for a long time now, thus developers have had access to the environment for writing applications for the same length of time. It's a joint responsibility; Microsoft provide the Vista x64 platform, and the application developers work on that platform to create the apps. I think you'll see more and more x64 apps working fine going forward.
