Fix SQL Server 2008 Express Full Text Index Management Missing

by APIJunkie 12. July 2010 03:16

If you installed the SQL server 2008 express and you are missing the ability to manage full text indexes inside SQL server 2008 management studio. I.e. you are missing the storage folder inside management studio.

First make sure you installed SQL Server 2008 Express with Advanced Services (the version without advanced services does not support free text search functionality).

Second Try to Install SQL Server 2008 Express Edition Service Pack 1. Besides fixing some bugs it added the ability to manage full text indexes on my machine.

Hope this helps!

I was first wounded by x86 assembly, recovered and moved on to C. Following a long addiction to C++ and a short stint at rehab I decided to switch to a healthier addiction so I am now happily sniffing .NET and getting hooked on Silverlight.

I am mainly here to ramble about coding, various API’s, Junkies(me especially) and everything else that happens between coders and their significant other.
