How to add wordperfect full-text search on SharePoint 2010

1. Run this iFilter installer on all your SharePoint servers: http://www.corel.com/servlet/Satellite/us/en/Content/1157481830100?pid=1216666054364

2. In RegEdit navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office Server\14.0\Search\Setup\ContentIndexCommon\Filters\Extension\

3. Add key .wpd, then modify Default and add {25BDCAE0-8028-11d1-8ACC-0060670C457D}

3. In RegEdit navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office Server\14.0\Search\Setup\Filters\

4. Add key .wpd, then add string Extension=wpd, DWORD FileTypeBucket=1, string MimeTypes=application/wordperfect

5.Open SharePoint Central Admin ->Manage Service Applications->Search Service Application

6. On the left side under Crawling, click File Types, and add wpd

7. Start->Run, type IISRESET /restart

8. Open Services, restart SharePoint Server Search 14, SharePoint Foundation Search V4

Now WordPerfect docs will be indexed by crawling. If you want to test it out then initialize a full crawl or wait for the next scheduled crawl.

Note: This is the same process for adding search support for PDFs and any other file type that isn't supported by default, just need to add different GUIDs and install different iFilters.
