Full content search in Windows Live Mail?

In Windows Mail one could do a full content search, inside the text of a group of messages. How does one do this in Windows Live Mail?

It seems this is a known problem in Windows 7 x64, see:

Using Windows Search to search for Windows Live Mail e-mail will return incomplete results on Windows 7 64-bit Operating Systems

LiveMailFix.reg file attached.

Probably worth rebuilding the Index after rebooting: search for Indexing Options | Advanced | Rebuild
