I'm developing a web application that uses Windows Search to find files in a server. When I'm trying to instantiate a CSearchManager object, I get an error message.

Test script:
$assembly = 'Microsoft.Search.Interop, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=9f748985a6e9a7cb, processorArchitecture=MSIL';
	$namespace = "Microsoft.Search.Interop";
	$class = "CSearchManager";
	$manager = new DOTNET($assembly, $namespace.$class);

Actual result:
Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'com_exception' with message 'Failed to instantiate .Net object [CreateInstance] [0x80070002] The system cannot find the file specified. ' in C:\Websites\ThesisIntra\digarc\index.php:374 Stack trace: #0 C:\Websites\ThesisIntra\digarc\index.php(374): dotnet->dotnet('Microsoft.Searc...', 'Microsoft.Searc...') #1 {main} thrown in C:\Websites\ThesisIntra\digarc\index.php on line 374

If this is about .Net Framework 4.0 or later, the behavior is to
be expected, since these versions are only supported as of PHP
8.0.0[1].  As workaround for previous PHP versions, you can
register the .Net classes and use the com class to instantiate
