Adobe filter on SQL 2005 X64

I'm trying to get the Adobe filer to work on a SQL 2005 x64, but I can't get
it to work.

I have downloaded the bits from
tried to follow the guide as much as I can:-) What I don't understand is why
I would need to install Windows desktop Search on the server but I even
tried that. Exept for the instructions in the page I have run:

EXEC sp_fulltext_service 'load_os_resources',1
EXEC sp_fulltext_service 'verify_signature', 0

Restarted SQL + MSFTESQL

EXEC sp_fulltext_service 'verify_signature', 1
EXEC sp_fulltext_service 'load_os_resources',0

When I run select * from sys.fulltext_document_types I can see that it has
pdf in the list but it is still not indexing. If I look in the log I get the

2008-05-09 15:20:53.76 spid15s The component 'PDFFilter64.dll' reported
error while indexing. Component path 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader

2008-05-09 15:20:53.76 spid15s Error '0x80004005' occurred during
full-text index population for table or indexed view '[XXXXX].[dbo].[XX]'
(table or indexed view ID '514100872', database ID '26'), full-text key
value 0x0000022C. Attempt will be made to reindex it.

Any help would be nice!

Thats' a generic permission denied error message. Does that help you at all?

I know that - but I don't know what I have done wrong or how I can fix
it:-( Aslo, I'm not sure if it will work, I haven't heard anyone doing what
I'm doing.

Any other sugestions?

Hello Bjn,

I don't think this will work with SQL Server.

Try this instead
