Property Sets

Note  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.

Indexing Service provides several property sets to use with OLE DB Provider for Indexing Service. In addition, Indexing Service uses several COM property sets.

For examples of how to use these property sets, see the Simple sample and the AdvQuery sample in the Platform SDK directories mssdk\samples\winbase\indexing\simple and mssdk\samples\winbase\indexing\advquery.

The following table lists the globally unique identifier (GUID) and a short description of each property set:
