Enable full text search for Msg 7609 Full text search is not enabled or a full text component cannot be loaded

06 June,2017 by Jack Vamvas

 

The SQL Server Error   Msg 7609 Full text search is not enabled or a full text component cannot be loaded    appeared during an application upgrade.   The application developer contacted me asking for an understanding the error and suggesting a fix to this problem. The fix will be to enable full text

The first step is to confirm if the SQL Server feature FULL-TEXT is installed on the SQL Server Instance. The method to use is a sql query:

SELECT FULLTEXTSERVICEPROPERTY('IsFullTextInstalled')

If the response is 0 , then FULL TEXT is not installed. To confirm I checked the configuration.ini file from the installation script library for the SQL Server Instance.The features installed were :

SQLENGINE,BIDS,IS,SDK,SSMS,ADV_SSMS,RS

Adding the FULL TEXT features requires accessing the installation binaries and using the Add a Feature to an existing installation. When the options appear , the existing features will be greyed out. Check the “Full-text and Semantic Extractions for Search” and proceed with the installation.

Full_text

 

Once the installation is completed , you can check to see if the feature is installed by running the same query as earlier:

 

SELECT FULLTEXTSERVICEPROPERTY('IsFullTextInstalled')

You should have a 1 .     If it is not 1 ,progress with a troubleshooting process.
