Hi,

I came across the following article

http://www.aisn.net/blog/index.php/2010/10/21/solving-the-sharepoint-foundation-2010-search-dilemma/#comments

The article states the following

"I discovered that SharePoint Foundation does not allow iFilters. Therefore, pdfs cannot be scanned and cannot be included in Search. This is going to be a major bummer for some people.
Fortunately, solutions involving SharePoint Server 2010 and SharePoint Search do exist. As you may know, both these products are not free, and there are some constraints about where and how Search can be installed.
After quite a bit of research on the “Search” dilemma, I’ve been successful in discovering the solution to the problem for SharePoint Foundation 2010 clients. It cannot be found in the SharePoint 2010 manual and it was by no means easy."

The solution is NOT provided so I don't even know if this is even real...

Anyway my question is, does anybody knows a way to Search non office documents with Sharepoint Foundation 2010 (like pdf's, jpeg, etc.)?

Thank you!
