Indexing PDFs with legacy Indexing Service

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation
Advertisement
I have a .NET application that uses the old legacy Indexing Service on Windows Server 2003 SP2 (32-bit). What do I need to install to make it index PDFs? I've installed XI Reader (as I understood that the iFilter was built into this now?) and I've restarted Indexing Service and done a full re-sync, but it still doesn't seem to be finding any PDFs (also tried a reboot).
Thanks

It appears that the answer was to uninstall XI and install 9.5. I believe Adobe made changes to the iFilter from 10.x onwards so that it no longer supports an old method that is used by Indexing Service. This thread was useful: http://forums.adobe.com/message/5115337#5115337
