Autodesk ADMS 2009 Re-Index Error The iFilter foor this file extension could not be loaded ...

We just completed an Autodesk Inventor Suite 2008 to 2009 upgrade after migrating their existing Vault contents off of the workstation.

The original Vault setup on the workstation:
 + Windows XP Pro x86
 + ADMS 2008
 + SQL 2005 Express (Dbs @ 2GB+ = maxed)
 + AIS 2008 fully installed.

The full story can be found on our blog post here with the actual process at the bottom:

So, we now have a full SQL 2008 Standard for Small Business resident vault.

However, we have the following problem when trying to run the Re-Index process on the Vault Db:
 "14 NPT.ipt.dwf .dwf The iFilter for this file extension could not be loaded. Verify that this iFilter is properly registered."

Please see attached.

The process gets hung up at the 2% mark with 1505 files processed.

Go to autodesk's site and search on the term "vault advanced configuration guide" and also "ifilter". There's lots of good info there.  If you're on subscriptio, log an issue with their support web site.

Also try googling on the term ifilter. It's not an autodesk thing, it's a microsoft indexing service thing that vault uses.

I did a pretty thorough search of their site with very little results on this specific issue.

The client outright purchased the product. No support without jumping onto the Autodesk fall-back support.

I figured someone might know here first. :)

No answer found. Too specialized.
