Vista Search not working

Posted: 06-08-2006, 04:54 PM
My search index appears to be broken. When I attempt to modify the search
index by Control Panel -> Indexing Options, I recieve a message "Waiting for
status update..." There is no response (Modify... and Advanced... buttons are
disabled).
I get the same behavior when I run as administrator.
I am unable to perform any searches in vista.
Any ideas?

Thanks, Michael

It's been broken and not fully 100% functional in Beta 2 for some time... I
guess it's still being worked on.

Hi Michael..

This probably doesn't help.. but my computer behaves exactly the same
way....No vista search not in outlook not in vista. The index doesn't appear
to be broken. It doesn't appear to exist at all....

Hi Michael
My computer shows the exact same behavior (only in german). The index
doesn't just appear to be broken, it appears to never been built. Sorry my
post doesn't help, but i would be interested in a solution...
