FileLocator Pro recently cannot search most of my pdf files. The error message is as follows:
PDFToText failed with error code: 2 - Additional: PDFToText failed with error code: 2 0x80040503 (0x0)
I just allow automatic update for my foxit reader and adobe acrobat 11 pro. Will those updates affect FileLocator Pro?

Adobe/Foxit updates shouldn't effect FileLocator Pro unless you're using the PDF IFilters.

Error code 2 simply translates to 'Unable to open file'. Check your permissions for the file and try running a search on a small subset to see if you can identify which files are causing problems. Ideally run the tests on a local drive rather than a network drive to rule out network issues.
