I can't speak to breakage in Windows 7, but Windows 8 flat-out removes the IFilter technology that older version of Windows provided, which allowed third-party software to extract text from various file formats to do things like build desktop search technologies. From here:

Indexing Service is no longer supported as of Windows XP and is unavailable for use as of Windows 8.

So, "created properly" really doesn't guarantee that it will work on future versions of Windows unless you assume that "properly" means that you have a crystal ball and can tell which technologies Microsoft will discard in the future.
