Hi,

load and try "Copernic Desktop Search" from https://www.copernic.com.
It works fine.

I know that if you have your product documentation online, Google does a
great deal of the work when it comes to search. In addition, it's
relatively straightforward to implement solutions like elasticsearch. I
understand the benefits of public, online documentation for searchability.

However, I need a solution for local documentation. The infrastructure
required to set up something like elasticsearch for a local doc system
(essentially comprised of HTML files) seems excessive. But the search
provided out of the box by sphinx is not satisfactory.

If you are delivering local documentation, what are you using for
high-quality search?
