I have a farm with two WFE's, two App servers and a SQL DB server. Search is hosted on the APP Servers with the query running on the WFEs.
How can I add a file type to be crawled by the Search Application? this file is fine to open using notepad etc. the Extension is .SPM.
I have seen lots of conflicting advice and am looking for something definitive.
Also I would like to be able to open these docs directly from the browser, I have IE 8 and it allows me to save it in Sharepoint, when I open it I am asked to Save or cancel.
