I tried to register my custom IFilter with Sharepoint 2013 to no avail. I "creatively varied" the registration steps that worked for Sharepoint 2007 and Sharepoint 2010 but without success.

Is there a detailed step-by-step description of the procedure for registering custom IFilters with Sharepoint 2013?


Maybe try the PowerShell in this article. PowerShell command is: New-SPEnterpriseSearchFileFormat



Since the enterprise search was rebuilt to use FAST the overall process should be different. I cannot seem to find anything specific for SP 2013, but you may want to try this resource which identifies the steps that were used with FAST for SP 2010.
