Windows 2003 won't search script

Discussion in 'ASP General' started by Simon Wigzell, Dec 31, 2005.

  1. I have discovered an odd problem with Windows 2003. When you use the
    directory search (Right click on a directory in Explore, select "Search") it
    won't return any results that are within script delimeters e.g.

    I will find this content of a file:

    Hello World

    But it won't find this:

    <%
    Hello World
    %>

    This was not a problem in Windows 2000. Searching within files is a
    critical part of my ASP development. Once again Microsoft has decided to do
    something that it thinks everyone wants but is only a hinderance to me. I
    don't see anywhere in the Explore controls to change this. Any ideas? Or
    does someone know of a free search program, something like Unix "grep" would
    be nice that I can use for searching in my ASP code instead?
