Query-Language Syntax


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 APIs support queries on the results of indexing using the following two primary approaches.

This section presents reference material for the two approaches. For additional information about these query approaches, see Query Languages for Indexing Service.
