Per my previous blog post – Search Admin Component Not Running, it was noted that that for the search admin component to run, you would need at least 3 additional hot fixes & if that didn’t work running a windows update and installing all the missing updates would certainly fix the Search Admin Component Not Running issue.

As seen in the earlier post, capturing a virtual hard drive to create a Windows Image File is time consuming (compared to taking a snapshot in VMWare or Hyper-V) and memory intensive as well, however the advantage is that you can leverage on bare metal power – like having dual boot or multi-boot environment on your laptop.
