Default iFilter for Indexing Service

Just wondering, has anyone come across an iFilter for Corel Draw ? I understand X4 is a different more XML format (???) but we have hundreds of CDR's in X3 and 12. I know there is an Adobe PDF iFilter, Word, Corel WP, etc but how about Corel Draw?

At the risk of sounding stupid... What is an iFilter?

I have downloaded the C++ source from here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...94(VS.85).aspx, I am not tech savy in C++ but I will attempt to compile it with an old Visual Studio compiler but I know I wont get far, basically I would like to try and re-write the example so it picks up CDR file and takes it's file name, thumbnail, dates, description fields etc from the file (meta data?). When Indexer runs it makes a small catalog file of everything and then you can use the Window Search to find files instantly. I know vista has a lot of this stuff with the newer X4 version but we haven't upgraded, but when we do all our old files will not be updated are remain in old format, so there is some sense to try and index them. I will be installing the PDF version and see how it goes in a moment.

Other examples are:-

This best sums it up for Adobe PDF.
Adobe PDF IFilter is a free downloadable Dynamic Link Library (DLL) file that provides a bridge between a Microsoft indexing client and a library of Adobe PDF files. It consists of code that understands the Adobe Portable Document Format as well as code that can interface with the indexing client. When an indexing client needs to index content from PDF files, it will look in its registry for an appropriate DLL and will find the Adobe PDF IFilter. Adobe PDF IFilter will return text to the indexing client. The indexing client will then index the results and return the appropriate results to the user.
