Spell Check in Outlook 2010 not working?
Posted: Tuesday, October 19th, 2010 by Ted
We recently ran across an issue with one of our customers who upgraded only Outlook to 2010 while keeping the rest of Office at 2007. They called in stating that Outlook’s spell checker wasn’t working anymore so Kevin found the fix:
When users upgrade just Outlook, not the whole Office Suite, it doesn’t know where to look for Word as its editor, since it is also looking for Word 2010. This means the auto correct features won’t work. Here is the fix:
All you have to do is copy winword.exe to the office14 folder.
Copy Winword.exe from here C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14
Make sure that you copy, not move the file or there could be other issues that you’ll run across but this will do the trick!
