Still doesn't work
No help at all. All settings are correct and still no spell check in word or outlook. A real head scratcher. Could I have lost the main dictionary? Anyone know the name of the main dictionary file?
Given the dollars involved, call MS and ask for a fix.
I take it you tried google'ing for an answer so it's take to call home.
Microsoft does not have an answer
Pardon me if I mispell a word....
I called Microsoft today and they said they had no idea that this was an issue. They had no answer for me but said they would give me a call back tomorrow by 11CST. I hope to have an answer to post.
Ouch. It's bad when you stump everyone.
Smile and hope for the best.
Office 2007 Spell Check Still Does Not Work
Well, Microsoft never called by 11 like they stated they would...not surprised though. I did call them with my trackin number and they Microsoft version of WebEx to look at my computer. After 2 hours they still did not have an answer to the problem. Here is what they did try though (When I stuck by the computer and watched):
1) Ran a diagnostic test (resulted in no errors)
2) Deleted various files in the registry
3) Removed a trial version of Visio 2007
4) Unistalled and reinstalled Office 2007
After all of that, when I run spell check "frjgfrt" still is a word. They claim they will call me back on Monday, but the catch was that I had to provide them a 4 hour window.
Trial Software is the Problem :: Office 2007 works now
I have come to the conclusion that the problem exists if a trial version was/is installed on the same computer that you are trying to install office 2007 on. When I installed Office 2007 onto a computer than only ever had Office 2003, the spell check worked fine. Having figured this out I attempted to uninstall Office 2007 and a Visio 2007 trial that I had installed on the computer I had the problems with. I unfortunately could not uninstall the programs and ended up reformatting my computer (I had to use a boot cd that did not come with my computer since it adds the office 2007 trial). When I did this the spell check worked fine. I wish Microsoft could have told me that?or even better, not even had this issue in the first place.
If I could hand out a prize.
I would. All I can do is thank you for sharing this nugget with us.
You can take it to the bank that we'll share this in the future with others.
Office 2007 spell check dosen't work
Here is a solution if you're willing to do a minor edit to the registary:
Start Regedit and goto the following key:
I had 2 entries (DLL and LEX) pointing to non-existing files.
Rename these to oldDLL and oldLEX.
After this change all Spell Checking worked normal again.
Hopes this helps.
Does this fix work for Vista as well? I have never edited the registary before.
Why not try it?
That did not work.
For some reason I do not have the final folder listed as "override".
But I did find this listed else where and this worked. Easy enough
Select All, then on the Review Ribbon, Proofing, Set Language, make sure that English US is selected and that the two checkboxes at the bottom are both clear: press DEFAULT
Thanks for letting us know.
It will take some time for this Office 2007 things to spread through this forum.
Thank you so much, this solved my problem perfectly.
Office 2007 spell check doesn't work
Problem is with Microsoft.
Office 2007 deletes the English, Spanish and German dictionaries from Outlook Express.
Its not you or your computers, its Microsoft!
Trying to resolve the issue for weeks now, and found this little nugget on Microsoft's site.
Nice one Microsoft!!!!!
Had I know the problems I would have, I would never have updated Office!
problem with spell check due to proofing tools
All these registry keys adjustments didn't work.
putting everything back default didn't work.
I uninstalled the Windows XP Proofing Tools and installed Office 2007 Proofing tools kit.
Now the spelling checker works fine
