In the past I installed MP8 on Solid Edge ST9, but I had to rollback to MP7 to have Fast Search working again.
Now I have installed MP9 but it has the same misfunction of MP8: fast search does not work and SE properties are not shown in windows explorer.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You have turned on the update packages for the programs?
And I think "Fast Search" is not working correctling due to MP9 but probably due to a Microsoft Update.
Go through the "Obsticles of Fast Search" (see aother post) and check wether or not the SEPropertyHandler.dll is registered correctly
This happens very often due to operating system issues rather more than SE MPs
I already followed that article when I installed MP8 without solving the problem: actually the issue was related to the MP itself, and it was enough to rollback to MP7 to solve it, without any other operation.
What do you mean to turn on the update package? I was trying the same exact procedure that I followed when I unistalled MP8.
BTW, I think that if Solid Edge designers decide to base a so important function on a so weak Windows feature, thay are to blame too, imho.
I discussed this thread with development and GTAC today. We are not aware of any problem with Fast Search in ST9 MP9. The reported ST9 MP8 Fast Search issue was fixed and verified as fixed in ST9 MP9.
Please contact your partner to report this issue, so we can work to get this resolved for you.
Solid Edge Release Manager.
as I thought and mentioned it:
"Again it was the registration of SEPropertyHandler.dll"
This is the most often happend issue in connection with the FastSearch
Need urgently repaired!
I have to thank you for the right suggestion. I was sure that this "re-registering" was already included in the MP script.
We too have seen this issue and have had to create a self installed patch for our users to register this when it occurs. Definitely needs fixed!
