I am using Windows Server 2008 R2 for development and also have installed Office Outlook in my system. Now I can't enable instant search withing Outlook. It's asking to enable to the search component. How to do this?

As per @surfasb 's comment, I tried adding it from Server Manager->Roles->Add Roles but it isn't displaying Windows Search

You're in the right area - it's in the Role Services for the File Services...

It does say that Windows Search Services and Indexing service cannot be installed on the same computer. This could be your problem.

Under the Server Manager, Go to Add Roles and look for Windows Search.
