asp query form

Hi,

I try to write an asp query form that lets client search any text-string and
display all pages in my web server that contain the text. I have IIS 6.0 on a
server 2003. The MSDN site says there is a sample file called Ixtrasp.asp,
but I could not find it in my system although I installed indexing service. I
followed the steps in MSDN site to create a basic .asp query form (too long
to post it here), but it always displays:

No documents matched the query

The index is out of date.
Page of 0

Under the computer's manager -- indexing services -- web, the "Query the
Catalog" works, displaying all pages in my web server that contain the
searching text.

Can somebody help me? either tell me where to find Ixtrasp.asp, or any
similar sample asp page for searching text-string in the web pages (not
search in database)?

Thanks!

Post the relevant code. You should be able to create a reproducible page
with only a few lines of code.

I believe there must be a simple code to do it. But, I just haven't found it.

Sorry, I won't go through that much code. Forget about the POST and
variables...hard code everything.

Reduce the number of lines to 10 or so...
