Hi there, I have recently reloaded XP home plus SP2 onto a new HDD. I also have McAfee Virus scan 9 installed and the latest Zone Alarm Pro, also MS Office '97. CPU is a Duron 1300Mhz.
Since re-installation I have been unable to spell check any outgoing mail and get the message 'The Spell Check on this document was halted. Do you want to send anyway?' F7 does the same thing. Any ideas anyone?
Many thanks Vog and GroupFC. The trailing back slash was there and the Mssp232.dll & Mssp2_en.lex files. However the Csapi3t1.dll file wasn't there so I downloaded it from the site GroupFC gave me and copied it to the proof folder. It all works correctly now and I'm most grateful to all concerned. Any idea how the file went missing in the first place?
Not really but I think it is a shared Microsoft file (ie oe6 shares the spellchecker with word). I think when you re-installed word 97 this file wasn't there in the first place! which is why spellchecker didn't work.
My re-collection is that this was always a missing file and to get it to work you had to put this file in C:\program files\common files\Mocrosft shred\proof.
No doubt if I'm wrong somebody else will put us both right! - Glad it's sorted!
