How can I search in this forum?


How can I search in this forum?

There is only one field to enter search terms, however it reports
'searching has been disabled...

I don't expect to browse each thread one for one to find threads
referring to my subject..

This is not a forum, it's a newsgroup. If you're using a web-based interface
at MSDN then it's an overlay onto this newsgroup. You can point a newsreader
such as Outlook Express or Forte Agent to news.microsoft.com. The newsreader
has built-in search functionality that works better than a web overlay.

hope this helps,

Hi,

Using a newsreader you can search only so much, but you will get the
newest data.

Microsoft does not archive the groups, but there are others who does. For
instance, you can search the microsoft groups (and plenty other groups)
using google

http://groups.google.com/

Use :

http://groups.google.com/advanced_search?hl=en

....fill in the newsgroup's name in the "group" textbox
( microsoft.public.dotnet.framework.aspnet )

....and use whatever search tearms you are looking for.

You can also restrict the search by date.
