Outlook 2007 Instant Search Not Working

Since an automatic update to Windows 10, the instant search feature in my Outlook 2007 does not work properly. In the Search Options window in Outlook, the "Index messages in these data files" window is blank. Any ideas of how to get the indexing corrected? I have rebuilt the Windows Index and run scanpst to correct the mail file.

Office (Outlook) '2007 is no longer supported and as such is no longer tested on W10. Any update can cause any '2007 function to no longer be operative. Even if someone knows of how to word around the current problem, it or any other function may fail with the next W10 update.

Hello,

Many Outlook users have faced the similar issue when their MS Windows got upgraded automatically. According to my research, there are two solutions to fix the issue.
1. Since Indexing works on Office 2010, 2016, and Office 365, Upgrade your MS Office.
2. Uninstall Office 2007 and Reinstall it again.

Note: Before performing the second step, you should take the backup of Outlook PST data files, contacts, journals, tasks etc. to use them later safely.

Now follow the steps in the answered forum given below. It provides a practical solution to fix “Outlook 2007 Index Messages in these data files: Empty / Blank in Windows 10 OS”.
