Windows Desktop Search returns nothing in Outlook 2007

If WDS (3.01 or 4.0) returns no search results in Outlook 2007, shutdown Outlook, run fixmapi.exe (usually in the Windows\system32 folder) then rebuild the WDS index.

The cause is usually the installation of Exchange management tools.

Thanks so much!
After trying every fix I could think of, that resolved the problem.

I had no luck with WDS! I work with Lookeen (www.lookeen.net) now and everthing is working without any problems!
