Yes, my custom properties are indexed with Windows Desktop Search. As for troubleshooting why yours don't work, I don't know.
Check your indexing options and verify that Solidworks file types are using the Solidworks iFilter. You do this by right-clicking the magnifying glass in the tray and selecting 'Windows desktop search options...', going into 'Advanced', activating the 'File Types' tab and scrolling through that big-ole list.
In order for the changes to take effect, you'll have to rebuild your index.
However, before you do this, check to see how many items you have indexed.
John, thanks for pointing me to the indexing options. I don't see an SolidWorks iFilter option there but I checked the Index Properties and File Contents option and later when I tried SolidWorks Explorer search it worked, I'm still expermenting to see if that was the issue or if it was something else.
