6 Appendix A: Product Behavior

The information in this specification is applicable to the following Microsoft products or supplemental software. References to product versions include released service packs.

Windows Search 4.0 is an out-of-band release that can be installed as an update to (exclusively) Windows XP operating system, Windows Vista operating system, Windows Server 2008 operating system, Windows Home Server server software, and all versions of Windows Server 2003 operating system. Windows 7 operating system and Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system cannot have Windows Search 4.0 installed. Windows Search 4.0 is the only out-of-band release of Windows Search. All other versions of Windows Search came with the operating system and can be identified as such.

With regard to Windows Search behavior, Windows Vista (without Windows Search 4.0) and Windows Server 2008 (without Windows Search 4.0) are equivalent. Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2 operating system, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Home Server, all with Windows Search 4.0, are equivalent. Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 are equivalent. The equivalent versions can be used interchangeably.

Exceptions, if any, are noted below. If a service pack or Quick Fix Engineering (QFE) number appears with the product version, behavior changed in that service pack or QFE. The new behavior also applies to subsequent service packs of the product unless otherwise specified. If a product edition appears with the product version, behavior is different in that product edition.

<28> Section 3.1.5.2.5: Cursor handles are not checked before Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Before Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, invalid handles stop the search service. Otherwise, the server will return E_FAIL if the ContainsHandle output parameter is not true.

<29> Section 3.1.5.2.6: Cursor handles are not checked before Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Before Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, invalid handles stop the search service. Otherwise, the server will return E_FAIL if the ContainsHandle output parameter is not true.

<36> Section 3.1.7: STAT_DONE implies that the server is ready to return rows to the client. This is always set to STAT_DONE on any machine running Windows 7 and on any machine running Windows Search 4.0, because the server is always ready to return rows.

On any previous WSS version, STAT_DONE is not returned until the server is completely done processing the query. If the rows are not ready, it will return STAT_BUSY. Once it is returned, any future call to the GetRows abstract interface with the same QueryIdentifier argument will successfully return results, if any are left.

This allows for pointers received in the Rows field of CPMGetRowsOut to be correct memory pointers in a client application process. Otherwise, it is set to 0x00000000.
