I installed Fileseek for the 30 day trial. I have a specific need to be able to search multiple zip archives for specific file names. I also installed the plugin for zip files, however in my initial testing I cannot figure out how to make this work. Is this functionality not possible?

On the Advanced tab, make sure that "Process File Contents Using File Handlers" is enabled, then put the text you want to search for in the Query box on the Search tab. The "Include Files" should be a wildcard for the files you want to search (e.g. *.zip)

If you still run into any trouble, please let me know.

Thanks!

So I think possibly something else is not set up correctly. I get no search results from the tool at all, no matter what I search for. The configuration is set up as recommended, screen shots attached. The tool also doesn't see the zip files in the selected directory. I attached a view of the Windows directory I am searching, then an view of what the tool shows as available folders in the directory - missing the zip files. I am set up to use the zip file handler.

Changing Advanced settings makes no difference - zero results.

Can you try removing the * from the Query text, so it just says .doc?

The Text Query engine is wildcard by default. Please let me know how that goes and we'll go from there.

Thanks!
