9.10. Enabling Text Search in 64-bit versions of Windows

In order to enable a 64-bit version of Windows to search for text in PDF files, there are a few additional steps to take.  You will need to download and install Adobe's PDF iFilter for 64-bit version of Windows.

To get started, visit: http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=5542 to download and install the Adobe iFilter.


Once you have installed the Adobe iFilter, open your Control Panel and go to "Indexing Options".


Click "Advanced" at the bottom and then select the "File Types" tab.



Scroll down to "pdf" under "Extensions" and it should now say "PDF Filter".
