Vista search within DWG files and AutoCAD 2008

It should be possible to search and find information within DWG files using Windows Explorer with the help of the AcDwgFilter that is included with AutoCAD 2008.
Is it only me or does not the search and find functionality in Windows Explorer work in AutoCAD 2008 on Windows Vista?
On the topic there is a 3:rd party solution available. It seemed to work well in my limited tests.

I hope to release our final within a few days. The 2007 version also works great with Windows Desktop Search!
