While the post does have the correct icon for us to download and install, though the name in the post and the actual file name are different, we need a new version of the iFilter for 64bit systems: Adobe - Acrobat : For Windows : Adobe PDF iFilter 9 for 64-bit ...
- The correct file name for the XML edit: icpdf_3.gif
- Download the above iFilter v9 from Adobe's site.
- Extract the installer from PDFiFilter64installer.zip.
- Click Start and right click on Command Prompt and Run as administrator.
- Click Continue at the UAC prompt.
- net stop iisadmin [Enter]
- In Windows Explorer, double click on the PDFFilter64installer file.
- Copy the PDF icon to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\Template\Images
- In the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web server extensions\12\Template\Xml\ directory edit the DOCICON.XML file.
- Paste the following into the (ByExtension) section that is sorted alphabetically by extension (ours went under the "onetoc2" extension):
- (mapping key="pdf" value="icpdf_3.gif") (Change the round brackets to Greater or Less Than as Blogger's editor does not like them)
- There will be a need to save the modified XML file to the server's desktop and then copy it back into the XML folder through two UAC prompts.
- Back at the command prompt: net start iisadmin [Enter]
- Click Start and type Windows SBS Native Tools Management [Enter] in Search.
- Click on the IIS Manager.
- Under the SS-SBS (MySBSDomain) click on Application Pools.
- Right click on the following and Recycle them:
- SBS Sharepoint AppPool
- SBS Web Applications application pool
- SBS Web Workplace AppPool
- SharePoint Central Administration v3
- Post the PDFs.
The update to the System path is suggested in the Adobe installation instructions.Once the SharePoint application pools have been recycled, we will see:
PDF document icons
One very, very important thing to remember: Upload the PDF files AFTER the Adobe PDF iFilter is installed so that the files are indexed. Otherwise, they will not be indexed until they are touched!
This is very important if there are thousands of PDF files to place into a document library or libraries.
UPDATE: Added the System Path variable to be appended in the last step, and made some grammar error corrections.
