Is there a tool for Windows that would enable me to search multiple PDF files (saved in one directory/subdirectories)? I'm aware of this question at SO, but it gives answers only for Linux users. Are you aware of any solution for Windows?

I tried Total Commander plugins but none of them worked for me (either problems with 64bit version or just didn't find anything.

Use the Advanced PDF search features in Adobe.

To use the advanced PDF search option, you can choose Open Full Reader Search in the drop down menu of the search box or press SHIFT + CTRL + F.

It looks as if you did not take the time to do some research, Googling for "search multiple PDF" gives you the answer, e.g. here.
