phdcc: findinsite.exe 2.2 MB
Get it from CNET!
Use the Direct Download Link.

By downloading the free development kit, you are agreeing to the Free license.  With the Free license you can put findinsite-ms on an unlimited number of web sites.  The Free license limits findinsite-ms to displaying only the first 60 files in a search database; the search API will return null values for some fields after the first 60 files.

Purchasing a license will let you use findinsite-ms on one web site on one server with more files, as defined in the license.

findinsite-ms logs each application start at (if possible). No personal information is stored.

WARNING: if running findinsite-ms on your own computer, then indexing seems to occasionally hang up if you are also running Visual Studio.NET - the hangs only seem to occur if the web site redirects page URLs.

Download instructions

  1. Download findinsite.exe.

  2. Run findinsite.exe to install to Program Files and your Start menu.

  3. Check you can view the documentation by selecting "Start+All Programs+FindinSite-MS+FindinSite-MS documentation".
    (The Search API examples will not run from the Start menu. To run these examples, you need to install on a server, eg as a virtual directory application in IIS - as described here.)

  4. Read the installation instructions about how to install findinsite-ms on your server.

  5. Read the full Getting Started instructions to configure and use findinsite-ms.
