Windows desktop search API in ASP.NET

Can anyone know how to use WDS API in ASP.NET?

I copied the Win App sample to ASP.NET, but recevied the following
Exception Details: System.InvalidCastException: QueryInterface for
interface Microsoft.Windows.DesktopSearch.Query.ISearchDeskt op failed.

Have you set AspCompat=true?

Thanks. It works.

Also include <identity impersonate="true"/> in the web.config

I read your posts with great interest and tried integrating the SDKSampleApp
into a Windows Service (with calls to a function performing ExecuteQuery by
Remoting from a WinForms GUI) but also keep receiving the error message:

System.InvalidCastException: QueryInterface for interface
Microsoft.Windows.DesktopSearch.Query.ISearchDeskt op failed.

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
