Windows Search 4.0 problems
Posted on 2008-10-23
After reinstalling Windows Search 4.0 for a user on an XP system, this message is displayed after each query: "Windows Search isn't running. To start it, click START, then ALL PROGAMS, Windows Search."
The application logs show this error: Event ID 1006
"The Windows Search Service has failed to created the new system catalog. Internal error <7,0x80071126>. "
The service is set to automatic, but it not started. If you start the service, it stops itself.
I have uninstalled win search 4, installed 3 (which worked, but the client wants 4), then installed 4--same problem. I've also uninstalled 4 and reinstalled it--same problem. Now, after uninstalling 4, I can not install 3 again. After the installer runs it says "Install could not be completed"
Thanks in advance for all your help!
