I'm here at the Developer Academy Day in Airport City and between the great lectures and the awesome lunch – I've managed to find a few minutes to blog. I guess the Live Blogging ordeal that we have here got the best of me as well. Damm, I never thought I'll find myself giving up on desert to post a new blog…
Anyway, this post is actually a new chapter for the ever-lasting issue of PDF IFilter and 64Bit (As you may remember, the last update was by FoxIT and her PDF IFilter for 64 Bit). And the great thing – this time the solution is by the official Adobe. I'm afraid to speak the words but could this mean that this saga is finally over?
Here's the the quote from the Abode Labs wiki:
This prerelease software will allow a server administrator to configure the current 32-bit PDF IFilter so that it may be used with Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server 2007 on Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition.
Adobe currently bundles a 32-bit PDF iFilter with both Acrobat 8 as well as the free Adobe Reader 8. This uses the Microsoft iFilter interface and allows third party indexing tools to extract text from Adobe PDF files. However, currently this 32-bit PDF iFilter does not work on 64-bit systems.
In response to customer requests, Adobe is releasing this prerelease version of instructions and files which will allow a server administrator to configure the current 32-bit PDF iFilter to work on 64-bit systems, specifically Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server 2007 on Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition.

Hmmm, Was that my final post about PDF? Let's hope…
Well – I'm off to see Yossi Taguri's lecture about Silverlight. The first part was really good!
