I am finding that API calls (which worked in 2.6) are now failing in 3.0.

1. Is there a new API for 3.0 Does ISearchDesktop still work

2. How does one determine which is installed

There is an API, but as of yet no SDK. It is apparently (still ) on track for late February 2007, per the sticky post here:

MSDN has an API reference now:

and it looks like ISearchDesktop isn't in the list of interfaces, but perhaps it's just not complete, or 3.0 will expose this 2.6 interface.

I would avoid using ISearchDesktop moving forward since this is only applies to the MSN 2.6 WDS Search and is not available in Vista. I would recommend you query the search index directly using ADO.
