Outlook 2007 keeps warning that Windows Desktop Search is not installed

We are deploying Outlook 2007.  It keeps warning the Windows Desktop Search is not installed.  I don't want to install this.  Can it be disabled?

On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Other tab.
Click Advanced Options and clear the Show prompts to enable Windows Desktop Search checkbox.

Cheers!

jrsitman,

Windows Desktop Search is an integral part of Outlook search.  Is there a reason that you do not want to install it.

If you did install WDS, and you still get the warning, create a new Outlook profile.

If no joy, reinstall Outlook.

I installed Outlook 2007 on our Citrix Server today.  The users that  are getting this warning are accessing Outlook via the Citrix.  If I install WDS on the Citrix will that solve the problem?

It should as the install of Outlook will be running from the Citrix server.   So to Outlook through Citrix, the user will have WDS installed.

WDS will take a performance hit on your server. I would suggest as a better solution, removing WDS from your terminal server and download the MS Office GPO templates http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=92d8519a-e143-4aee-8f7a-e4bbaeba13e7&displaylang=en and enable the policy "Prevent installation prompts when Windows Desktop Search component is not present"
