    Spell Check in Outlook Express 6 (WinXP with latest updates)

    I have just installed Win XP with all updates. I have Office 97 Pro Edition installed. Trying to use Outlook Express to send mail and use the spell Check I get:
    clicking on the spell check button; An error occurred while the spelling was being checked ( White X in red Circle).

    When using the default spell check during the send check: The spell check on this document was halted. Do you want to send anyway?

    I don't know if it cant find the dictionary, or the dictionary from 97 is not acceptable? The messages are not very informative.
    Is there a place in the registry that indicates where Outlook Express 6 looks for the dictionary so I can check for a proper mpath.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Dakota, Im a little confused relating to the question, can you clarify - do you have XP Home or Pro? Have you installed MSIE 6 full, which includes Outlook Express 6? Office 97 Professional should not concern MSIE 6 or Outlook Express. If you launch Outlook Express, go to TOOLS>OPTIONS>SPELLING, check the settings for Language spell check, and see if anything in the Options screen is out of place. Also while there, check the SEND tab and make sure the desired settings are selected. I see the combination of XP/MSIE 6 & OE 6 with MS Office Professional 97 loaded on several machines and they are working fine and dandy. Get back if you are still having trouble. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    OE is looking for a file in the location the newer version place it... the fix is at http://www.tomsterdam.com/insideOE/index.htm. i think you move (or copy) a file, not change the registry.

    so much for tomsterdam, i didn't see the fix there. <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15> Oh well, I hate framed sites so it's time i found a new resource anyway...

    Google found a post that said this:

    csapi3t1.dll is in the wrong folder on Windows XP and should be copied to the Program
    FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedProof folder.

    Re: Spell Check in Outlook Express 6 (WinXP with latest updates)

    HI, I will try and clarify the information, and bring you up to date on what I have found/tried.
    1) I have Win XP Home
    2) I have MS IE 6.0.2800.1106.xpsp1.020828-1920
    3) I have Office 97 Professional

    I checked your suggestions and all was in order.

    Using MS Word I can use spell checking without a problem.
    Using Outlook, I can use Spell checking without a problem.
    Using Outlook Express, the spell check still does not work.

    I used regedit to look at the settings : HKEY Local MchineSoftwareMicrosoftShared ToolsProofingToolsSpellingVendor
    and found references to the following programs.
    C:.............................excel.exe
    C:.............................MSaccess.exe
    C:.............................outlook.exe
    C:.............................Powerpnt.exe
    C:.............................Winword.exe

    There is no listing for outlook express. Is that a significant omission??

    I also tried the recommendation @ http://www.okinfoweb.com/moe/general/gen_030.htm and that procedure did not correct the problem.
    I am still trying to solve my problem. All help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
