FIX: Full-text search functionality does not work in SQL Server 2008 Express Edition even after you installed SQL Server 2008 CU2

Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2008 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 fix release.
