    The hardware and software evaluation tool

    If Effective File Search is not working in Windows 7, then you must run the hardware and software evaluation tool to check if the software is compatible with the operating system or not. This is a tool that will make a list of the components installed in the system according to its compatibilities and incompatibilities. If this particular software is listed among the incompatibilities, then I dont think that there is any solution to solve this issue.
