Re: Indexing pdf and doc

Swish-e version: 2.4.3 (upgraded this morning before the below).
Installed from I haven't touched catdoc.exe, so I assume
it's swish-e's. 
Full filename/path for a document:
Only thing I can think of is I installed swish-e from my drive C: to
drive I: (same scenario I had before I upgraded), but as far as the web
site is concerned, the files are all on drive C: (which is drive I: to
me). All the other indexing works fine: pdf, htm, html, and asp.

OK, quick sanity check:

Which version of SWISH-E is this?

Was it installed using the exe from

Is this the catdoc.exe included with that version of SWISH-E?

Hrm, I'm not sure what that means either.

Could you give an example of the full filename for one of these
documents?  For example C:\files12345\stuff123\abc123.doc

And the directories the files are in are also named this way?
