Windows 7: Google Desktop Search W7 32bit

Google Desktop Search W7 32bit

I cannot seem to get Google Desktop Search to work with Windows 7 32bit. I do not want to get into a debate regarding the merits of Windows Search vs. Google Desktop, I just want to use Google Desktop Search.

I have read a few older posts about some workarounds for 64bit Windows 7 but nothing has worked for me so far.

Has anyone been able to successfully install, run, and use Google Desktop Search?

Hi JayNYC,
I don't use Google Desktop but a solution might be running it in Compatibility Mode
