Title: Spell check (english)
Post by Support Staff on Jan 24th, 2003, 10:15am
As you may know, some installations of Office 2000/XP don't support sharing the spell-check function with other applications. This sharing is used by our products and enables users to keep a single "custom dictionary", retaining the same spell-check criteria for all (compatible) applications running on the PC.
A practical solution to get things working quickly was to install an old MSWord release (for example Word 7).
Another solution (for English MSWindows editions only) is to download this ZIP:
First close all programs, then extract the .dll .dic and .lex files to the directory shown in the ZIP archive. Then double-click the SpellFix.reg file, this will update the MSWindows registry and
you're done.

  I tried to do this and it installed fine. But when I tried to use the spell check I got this error message:

Access violation at address 00000000. Read of address 00000000.

Why did this happen?

Any help would make me very happy.  :)

Are you sure you unzipped by selecting "keep folder names"?

It looks like somehting isnt found by the program.

If you open the Registry (c:\windows\registry.exe) and you search for the key:
\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Proofing Tools\Spelling

you should see a subkey called 1033.
Inside it, a key called "nomal", and two strings, such as:
C:\Programs\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Proof\MSSP2_EN.LEX
C:\Programs\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Proof\MSSP232.DLL

(the path/folders you have might be different).
Please check that these files do exist.

Other problems might be caused by other subkeys such as 1036. A solution is to try to temporarily delete them.

Please email so we might help you with some screen shot.
