Micorsoft Desktop search and MOSS

Filed under: MOSS, Search — Tags: , — stephenmuller @ 3:15 am

Well the preview of Desktop search has been released.  You can get it here..

Windows XP people can now add a search to their MOSS search center. It is less than complete I feel. Ideally I think it would have been good to include the search results in the desktop search results rather than in the Sharepoint search center. Although that may change down the track.

I would like to be able to search my local AND Sharepoint.

I followed these rules but I guess XP is different to Vista so this is what I did (I copied a little from the previous site, sorry)

  • Click on Start Button
  • Type Gpedit.msc, Group Policy Editor will open (Click Allow if prompted for elevated privileges)
  • Navigate down and expand the following tree nodes: User Configuration – Administrative Templates – Windows Components – Search
  • Double Click “Add primary intranet search location”
  • Choose to “Enable”
  • Enter :
    MOSS Search,http://yourmossurlhere/searchcenter/pages/results.aspx?s=Intranet&k=%w
  • Click OK
  • Close Group Policy Editor
  • Reboot or run the following command in a command window as Administrator – Gpupdate /force

You can also add some secondry ones but they are not as visible as the primary. Bring on version 5.

Mac Office 2008 and MOSS

Filed under: MOSS — stephenmuller @ 5:46 am

I was asked about issues with MOSS and the Macs Office 2008 and the level of integration, I am horrified to learn they are creeping in to the workforce…(sorry Antin, teasing).Anyway it took me a while to find details on how well MOSS and Office 2008 integrate, so I will post the link as I believe it will becoming more of an issue. I also understand from the comments and blogsphere that more and more users want the same level of integration as does Office 2007..I must say I am surprised at the lack of integration but at least it has check in and check out functionality..

Is the ugly link.. Has anyone had any experience with it (Office 2008 and MOSS not the link)

Seperate Document Windows in Office 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — stephenmuller @ 4:10 am

This is call out for some help.

 I want to have two seperate word docs running side by side (I have a dual monitor) so I can copy and or compare the two. Before I could im sure in Office 2003. Now I cant in 2007..I want to…

I found a link that shows me how to have them as seperate icons in the task bar but they still run in an a single MDI.

Does this make sense and does anyone have a switch that I need to flick? Im sure it is simple. Help…..
