[IFilter] Indexing contents of RAR files

RAR IFilter from IFilterShop I'm using this RAR IFilter from the (free for non-commercial users) and my RAR files are now indexed including the contents.

They also offer interesting IFilters for ASPX, CHM, MSG, MS Project, Mind Manager, and many more other file types.

Note from the readme file:

In Vista Windows Search and Windows Desktop Search you need to configure a custom temporary directory:

  1. Open registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\IFilterShop\RarFilter"
  2. Add new String value named "TempPath" and enter the full path to the new temporary directory
  3. Restart Indexing Service
