Microsoft Filter Packs is a single point-of-distribution for Office IFilters. IFilters are components that allow search services to index content of specific file types, allowing user to search for content (i.e. text within the document) in those files. In other words, Office 2010 Filter Packs enhance the default search capabilities of Microsoft Search Services in SharePoint, SQL Server, Exchange Server and Windows Search used in Windows server or client platforms such as Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

By installing Microsoft Office 2010 Filter Packs, the following IFilters will be installed, and system will have additional capability to search for content in the file types or extensions listed below:

* Legacy Office Filter (version 97-2003; .doc, .ppt, .xls)

* Zip Filter (.zip)
* OneNote filter (.one)
* Visio Filter (.vdx, .vsd, .vss, .vst, .vdx, .vsx, .vtx)
* Publisher Filter
* Open Document Format Filter

Windows Search Services was previously known as Windows Indexing Services. The filter packs support Windows 7; Windows Server 2003 SP2; Windows Server 2008 R2; Windows Server 2008 SP2; Windows Vista SP1 ;Windows XP SP2; and Windows XP SP3. As it’s a filter, the Microsoft Filter Pack requires the Microsoft Search Service.

Open XML SDK 2.0

September 27, 2010 .NET, All, Microsoft, Microsoft SDKs, Office, Open XML No comments

Open XML SDK 2.0 for Microsoft Office

The Open XML Format SDK 2.0  is a superset of the Open XML SDK 1.0. In addition to the functionality provided by the Open XML SDK 1.0, it leverages.NET Language-Integrated Query (LINQ) and provides classes to construct and query the contents of parts within a package. You can use functional construction for composing documents, and LINQ queries for extracting information from documents.

The SDK is a collection of classes that let developers create and manipulate Open XML documents – documents that adhere to the Office Open XML File Formats Standard. Because the SDK provides an application program interface that lets developers manipulate Open XML documents directly, they can do so without the need for the Office client products themselves in both client and server operating environments.

Open XML SDK 2.0 for Microsoft Office offers a number of tools and resources to improve programmatic document processing thus making a task of the developer more efficient. The SDK also carries an interoperability improvements for open XML implementers as well as it is  designed to let Open XML developers build high performance client-side or server-side solutions that handle complex operations using only a small amount of program code.
