Is Fulltext installed on the instance?
Please run following SELECT to check if fulltext feature is installed

Yes fulltext search feature is installed on your SQL Server instance.
You can also check if fulltext service is already running on the server. Go to Services management console for that.
Please refer to tutorial at
http://www.kodyaz.com/articles/SQL-Server-Full-Text-Search-Indexing.aspx as a starting point.

Thanks for your reply.
But i can't find the solution to my issue in the link you reffered. The link explains the procedure of using full text search functionality.
My issue is that i can't find the context menu of the Full Text Catalogs, where there is the New Full-Text Catalog... command in my sql server management studio.

One more point i found is that, i can't see MSSQLFDLauncher in
sql server services.
Does it mean that full text search is not installed?

I reinstalled the software and it resolved the issue
