We're looking for an installation package for the lates IBM Omnifind Yahoo Edition - which is a free version, but we cannot locate any working download links, as the product seems to have been discontinued according to:

If you know where we can find this (quite old) free version - please advice :)

    There are a number of links available by searching for IBM Omnifind Yahoo Edition, but I'm sure you've tried all the usual suspects like softonics/softpedia/wareseeker, and so forth.

    If you're looking for this old software as a curiosity, remember that nothing ever disappears from the net. It just gets harder to find. (You may even want to search the Internet Archive Wayback Machine at The Wayback Machine is down for maintenance as I write this, but should be back later.

    If you're looking for functionality, though, Omnifind Yahoo Edition was based on the Apache Lucene project, so Apache Solr might be a good replacement and better software as it is being maintained and enhanced.

    There are a number of free search engines which could be adopted to the task of enterprise search catalogs several of them.

    It's for functionalty - we need to reinstall a current setup, but cannot locate the installation files unfortunately - we've tried softonics/softpedia/wareseeker and numerous others without any luck so far.

    We where hoping someone had a copy we can have download :)
