    windows search 4.0

    Hello, running windows 7 enterprise 32 bit with outlook 2010.

    Within outlook there is an option to "upgrade" your search which sends you to a windows search 4.0 page for vista sp1.

    I cant seem to find one for windows 7 , am I going mad? :P

    Hey Cider, my old machine is running Windows 7 enterprise 32 bit with office 2010 (inc Outlook 2010)

    Isn't the Windows Search 4.0 by default on 7 :S "or for some weird reason yours isn't? p.s. provide with more information or anything else I do help just ask I see Microcrap have bugs already in 2010. I am kind of lazy just leave it to autmatically update.

    Oh sometimes I love the Search but it's annoying at hell, when complains about non-index locations. Just find my files god dam you!!!

    office 2010 is still beta yes?

    prob wait till it comes out of beta and there should be a win7 search.

    Also did any1 else spot that the default "Avator" icon for contacts has a similar silouhette as bill gates mug shot from when he was arrested in the 70's? those ms boys are up to no good again.

    article about it :> http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/new...tlook-2010.ars

    HYBRID did you mean beta or beta (better) because I don't know I must have been using 2010 for 6 months. I don't use beta's ain't allowed because I am on corporate network.

    Unless Cider is your version beta or RTM?

    I'm running win 7 64-bit professional and can use windows desktop search for email when I press the Windows Key and F or From search box in explorer. You can limit the search scope to email by entering kind:email. I'm still running Office 2007 which is limited to outlook search. I use the call to windows desktop search often to find mails since I find outlook search to be very poor. I wish it was integrated better.

    Cheers,
