Re: Indexing pdf and doc

Searching on Google, I found: "It can find catdoc.exe, but this is the error it returns when it can't find the document to parse." And when I tried using wvWare.exe instead, I get the error: No such file '@\' (whatever that means). The actual doc file names have no spaces and are only alphanumeric (no underscore or punctuation marks).

Not where I'd put the quotes, but if it works that's great.

Why is it saying "Catdoc" without any .exe or showing the full path you say is in your FileFilter command.  Seems like that might be a clue.
