dtSearch - System Requirements

What file formats does dtSearch support?

dtSearch can automatically recognize, index, search and display documents, including graphic marking of hits and multiple hit and file navigation options. HTML and PDF documents appear with all formatting and embedded images and links intact, exactly as in the original document. dtSearch developer product can display XML files with XSL formatting. dtSearch converts other file types to HTML for display with highlighted hits. dtSearch uses its own built-in file viewers for document parsing and display, unless otherwise noted.

While extensions are provided to identify some file formats, dtSearch generally does not rely on extensions to detect file formats. For example, a Word document named "sample.mp3" would still be identified as a Word document.
