Windows TIFF IFilter Server Scenarios

The following procedures explain how to use Windows TIFF IFilter with the associated server products.

To use Windows TIFF IFilter with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, Microsoft Search Server 2008, Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, or Windows SharePoint Services 4.0

  1. Follow the previous instructions in this document to install Windows TIFF IFilter.

    noteNote
    You can install Windows TIFF IFilter before or after these products are installed.

  2. If you install Windows TIFF IFilter after the product you are using, you need to restart the service for the product as follows:

    1. Click Start, type Services in the Start Search text box, and then press ENTER.

    2. Locate and right-click the name of the product service.

    3. Click Restart.

noteNote
Uninstalling the target product removes the associations between Windows TIFF IFilter and TIFF extensions. To fix this, you need to reinstall Windows TIFF IFilter before you can use it.

Using Windows TIFF IFilter with Microsoft SQL Server 2005 or Microsoft SQL Server 2008

  1. Start SQL Server Management Studio.

    noteNote
    For more information, see Starting SQL Server Management Studio (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=150020) on the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) Web site.

  2. In SQL Server Management Studio, select the instance in which you want to enable Windows TIFF IFilter, and then run the following command in that instance:

    sp_fulltext_service 'load_os_resources',1
    
    sp_fulltext_service ‘verify_signature’,0
    

    noteNote
    You must turn off signature verification because SQL Server cannot verify catalog-based signatures.

    This procedure is similar to procedures you follow to register Microsoft Filter Pack IFilters. For more information, see How to register Microsoft Filter Pack IFilters with SQL Server 2005 and with SQL Server 2008 (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=150021).

  3. If you are running SQL Server 2008, go to Step 5. If you are running SQL Server 2005, stop and restart the msftesql service as follows:

    1. Open a Command Prompt window, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

      net stop msftesql
      


      noteNote
      To stop the msftesql service for a specific instance, run the following command: net stop msftesql$InstanceName.

    2. Open a Command Prompt window, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

      net start msftesql
      


      noteNote
      To stop the msftesql service for a specific instance, run the following command: net start msftesql$InstanceName.

    3. Restart the SQL Server service.

To use Windows TIFF IFilter with Microsoft Exchange Server 2010

  1. To use Windows TIFF IFilter with Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, add the following registry keys:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ExchangeServer\v14\MSSearch\CLSID\{4D144E38-5812-4F6D-A82A-C60A8F7E68D6}]

                   @={C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Filters\tifffilt.dll}

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ExchangeServer\v14\MSSearch\Filters\.tif]

                   @={4D144E38-5812-4F6D-A82A-C60A8F7E68D6}

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ExchangeServer\v14\MSSearch\Filters\.tiff]

                   @={4D144E38-5812-4F6D-A82A-C60A8F7E68D6}

    noteNote
    You need to replace C:\ with the appropriate system drive letter.

  2. Run the following commands to restart Microsoft Exchange Server:

    net stop msftesql-exchange
    
    net start msexchangesearch
