    Windows Search 4.0 on Windows Web Server 2008

    Hello,

    I want to use Windows Search on a Windows Web Server 2008 (a web application want to use it).
    But I can't find the files services server role.

    Is it possible to install it? Or what can I do to use the Windows Search on it?

    Regards
    Tilo

    What steps are you currently using?

    1) Start Server Manager
    2) Click on Roles in the left navigation pane
    3) Select Add Role in the Roles Summary pane to the right
    4) Select the File Services role and click Next
    5) Select the Windows Search role service

    If you can't get it stated from there, try the following download(s) from Technet:

    Thank you for your answer.

    Yes I want to follow these steps. But its not possible because in Windows Web Server 2008 R2 (not Windows Server 2008 R2) there are only two roles to add (DNS-Server and IIS).

    I have tryed it already to install it directly (your links) but it shows an error on installation "...not for this operating system".

    Maybe its not possible to use Windows Search with Windows Web Server 2008 R2.

    Sorry, I missed the 'Web'.

    Windows Search is only available under the File Services Role.
