Search component doesn't work - displays [FrontPage Search Component] message
Posted on 2003-10-23
I'm having a problem getting the FrontPage search component to work on a newly configured Windows 2003 Server that is running IIS 6.0. The install was configured as an application server with only the FrontPage server extensions option selected (no .net)
When you view the page you get the following message: [FrontPage Search Component] and the component does not display (no box to type in search criteria).
No matter what I try, I can not get the FP search component to work. I tried other FP components such as a counter and it works. I do have indexing running on the server. I am able to query the windows catalog and I do get results back.
I have done the following:
1) Recalculated hyperlinks
2) Checked server health and repaired any problems
3) Recalculated the web
I have gone as far as uninstalling the app server and reconfiguring it. No matter what I do, I can not get the search feature to work. I have the same functionality working on a Win2k server running IIS 5.0 and I haven't had any problems with it.
Any solutions would be greatly appreciated!
