Windows Desktop MVP Anand Khanse, has published a great article entitled, “Troubleshooting Windows Vista Search & Indexing Errors”. Anand’s blog post suggests a number of troubleshooting steps that can be taken to resolve a problem where the error message, “Search Failed to Initialize” is displayed.
The Microsoft Fix It team were so impressed with Anand’s troubleshooting tips, that they decided to automate his blog post into a Fix it MSI package! Anand is also the first MVP to have his solution automated though Microsoft Fix It!
