Indexing Service is no longer supported as of Windows XP and is unavailable for use as of Windows 8. Instead, use Windows Search for client side search and Microsoft Search Server Express for server side search.


The FiltDump.exe program loads an IFilter interface implementation for a specified document and prints the output produced by the filter DLL. You invoke the filtdump.exe program from the command line as follows:

filtdump filename.ext

FiltDump uses the LoadIFilter function to load the filter DLL appropriate for the specified file name extension and prints the filtered results. For example, the following command instructs filtdump.exe to load the smpfilt.dll filter for the extension .smp, extract all text and properties from the file myfile.smp, and print the results:

filtdump myfile.smp
