Hi,
I am planning to build a document management system, and wonder if there is a component that can be included in my program and helps me to search for a keyword inside a pdf file.

In a Windows system, in indexing, in File Types, PDF must be set for content searching. In addition, I use the Foxit iFilter.

So these settings must be set for all your users' machines.
