What is fdlauncher.exe?

Part of Microsoft SQL Server by Microsoft

What is it?

SQL Server provides the functionality for applications and users to issue full-text queries against character-based data in SQL Server tables. Before full-text queries can be run on a given table, the database administrator must create a full-text index on the table. The full-text index includes one or more character-based columns in the table. These columns can have any of the following data types: char, varchar, nchar, nvarchar, text, ntext, image, xml, or varbinary(max).
Description of fdlauncher.exe from Microsoft
Each full-text index indexes one or more columns from the base table, and each column can have a specific language. Beginning in SQL Server 2008, full-text search supports more than 50 diverse languages, such as English, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, Bengali, and Hindi. For a complete list of the supported full-text languages, see sys.fulltext_languages (Transact-SQL). For each supported language, SQL Server provides language-specific linguistic components, including a word breaker and stemmer and an empty thesaurus file. For each full-text language, SQL Server also provides a file in which you can optionally define language-specific synonyms to extend the scope of search queries (a thesaurus file).
