Windows Search Stopped Working in FileCenter

A recent Windows update negatively impacted FileCenter's Windows Search integration. The common symptom is an error stating that the selected location can't be searched, but you may see other errors as well.

The Fix

We have adjusted FileCenter to handle the glitch. Our latest service release has the fix. Please install it right over the top of your current version:

Who Qualifies for the Update?

Current FileCenter 10 users qualify for the update. Anyone who purchased FileCenter 9 within the last 12 months also qualifies, though you'll need a new FileCenter 10 key (contact Sales for your key).

The fix is not available for FileCenter 9 and older, since these have been retired. It is only available for the current version. This point accentuates the importance of keeping FileCenter current through Maintenance. Your computer environment is a maze of delicate software connections and integrations which often get affected by updates. We put a lot of effort into keeping FileCenter current with the endless changes, but we can only do that for the current version.

To get Maintenance or upgrade to FileCenter 10, please Contact Sales.
