I get this error in my log files when I try to populate a full text catalog:

The crawl for project <SQLServer SQL0000800006> could not be started, because no crawl seeds could be accessed. Fix the errors and try the crawl again.

I then tried a "workaround" from microsoft which said I had to register some dll's. This doesn't seem to help. When I try to populate the catalog, it just says that full population has started and then nothing happens. The catalog still contains no records.

Any help would be appreciated
