MORE INFORMATION

Warning If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.
You can use the Language Resource Test tool to load word breakers, stemmers, and filters and to view information about how these components process specific text. The following is an example of how to use the Language Resource Test tool to load and to view word-breaker information:
  1. Determine the class ID (CLSID) and the name of the .dll file that you must load. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.
    2. Locate the following registry subkey:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\SPSSearch\ContentIndexCommon\LanguageResources
    3. Expand Default, and then click the language that you want. For example, click English (United States).
    4. In the right pane, double-click WBreakerClass. Make a note of the CLSID that is displayed in the Value data box. For example, the following is the CLSID for the English (United States) word breaker:
      {188D6CC5-CB03-4C0 1-912E-47D21295D77E}
      Click Cancel.
    5. In the right pane, double-click WBDLLPathOverride. Make a note of the name and the path of the .dll file that is displayed in the Value data box. For example, the following is the .dll file that is displayed for the English (United States) word breaker:
      LangWrbk.dll
      Click Cancel.
    6. Quit Registry Editor.
  2. Run the Language Resource Test tool. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Copy the Lrtest.exe file from the Support\Tools folder of the SharePoint Portal Server 2003 CD to the following folder on the server:
      Drive:\Program Files\SharePoint Portal Server\Bin
    2. Click Start, click Run, type cmd in the Open box, and then click OK.
    3. At the command prompt, switch to the following folder:
      Drive:\Program Files\SharePoint Portal Server\Bin
    4. Type the command line that you want, and then press ENTER. For more information about the syntax that Lrtest.exe uses, type lrtest /? at the command prompt, and then press ENTER. See the following examples:
