The protocol handler cannot be found

leave a comment »

Today I was playing with search engine and I was starting/stopping search services. At some point something happened and I couldn’t craw SharePoint content anymore. The message I get was :

The protocol handler cannot be found. Check that the handler has been installed.   (0x80040d1a)

I’ve spend another 45 minutes looking what is wrong and this end-up ( success path 🙂 ) with restarting three services:

  • Office SharePoint Server Search
  • Windows SharePoint Services Search
  • Windows SharePoint Services Timer

+ iisreset /restart

This do the trick for me and my crawler start to run again


hope that this will save someone time as I was playing/trying strange things to make it work again
