This note explains how to enable PDF indexing using the Adobe IFilter version 9.0 in Microsoft SharePoint 2010. This note is adapted from the Adobe note explaining how to configure the 64 bit IFilter for SharePoint 2007 (see: https://www.adobe.com/special/acrobat/configuring_pdf_ifilter_for_ms_sharepoint_2007.pdf ).

Now add PDF as a file type:

You can now add an image to be used for the icon for PDF documents:

  • Add an image (typically gif or png, use Google images to find an example) for the PDF icon to the folder:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\IMAGES

  •  Open the file docicon.xml from the location:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\XML

  •  Add a link to map the pdf extension to the image by adding a link like the following to the ByExtension element:

<Mapping Key=”pdf” Value=”pdf_icon.gif” OpenControl=””/>

  •  Finally, issue an IISReset and restart the Windows services “SharePoint Foundation Search V4” and “SharePoint Server Search 1”.

Your PDF documents should now be indexed on the next indexing crawl.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]

Sharepoint 2010 – PDF Icon not showing in SharePoint Doc Library and Search Results

Sharepoint 2010 – PDF Icon not showing in SharePoint Doc Library and Search Results

Ok, I recently face this issue while configuring SharePoint 2010 Search. I have done almost everything right but having issue with PDF icon; was not showing in Doc Library and also in Search Result. Below is what I have done and How I fixed the issue-

My Environment– Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit,SharePoint 2007 Enterprise

Steps

Findings and Fix-

Main issue starts at steps 5 and 6 on the above link where it says to verify the PDF image present at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\IMAGES.

well, PDF image didn’t saved automatically for me on the above location so I download a PDF image from internet and used it but didn’t work. Later I find out the GIF image should be right height and width. So if you need to download from internet Make sure the PDF GIF image is 17×17.

next step is adding an reference to DOCICON.XML at this location (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\XML)

please make sure you backup a copy of DOCICON.XML . That XML often get corrupted while adding reference.

Add reference within the ByExtension tag at DOCICON.XML with the following properties.

<Mapping Key=”pdf” Value=”pdficon.gif” />

Run iisreset

It should work now and you can see PDF icon at both Doc Library and SharePoint search.
