PDF ifilter for x64

There has been a bit of an issue with a full x64 MOSS farm, mainly due to the lack of ifilters for x64, the obvious (and also, importantly, tested and supported) workaround being the use 32bit for the Index server and x64 elsewhere.

 

The most common third party ifilter needed by clients (in my experience) is for PDF documents, Adobe were very slow to respond and deliver an x64 ifilter (in fact they still haven't) but now have a publishing work around to running v8.1 ifilter on x64, see this:

there is no mention of the threading issue that existed previously, hopefully this is resolved now but our testing may highlight this as still existing, will post if this is the case...

The SUGUK session (Tuesday 12th) went well! Big Smile

Hopefully everyone found the session informative, the feedback forms show very positive feedback (attendees: feel free to post your thoughts here). If you missed the session it may be repeated (if there is demand) at future events.

Thanks to all who attended, especially those who travelled a distance to listen to me, I hope you found it beneficial and enjoyed our hospitality... For those who were after the deck, it's available below:
