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: http://www-01.ibm.com/software/data/enterprise-search/omnifind-yahoo/

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 http://web.archive.org/web/20090202105142/http://www-01.ibm.com/software/data/enterprise-search/omnifind-yahoo/) 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
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Free_search_engine_software catalogs several of them.

Hi Amick

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 :)

Heureka ! - I've found a version on Softonic anyway - earlier today it would start downloading, but it looks like its going through now :)
