I have an ascii file that I am unable to have windows 7 search the content in. The file extension of the file is .ls which is simply a text file that the machine creates. I have associated ls with notepad thinking that would help, but it has not. So I have also added the ls extension to the indexing option as well as have all check boxes and radio buttons selected to search the content of that particular file, as well as all files.
If I rename the file to .txt, I can search the content. So what are windows 7 limitations of searching the content of files? I would have thought that as long as windows is able to view the file, it could search them. There are no odd characters are anything different between the .ls file and the .txt file. I simply renamed it... not even doing a save as so its truly an ascii text file.
