    Thesaurus & Office 97 (Office 97 )

    Thesaurus:

    I have Office 97 & Word 97 and have installed the Popup Thesaurus Menu. However, neither the MS Thesaurus nor the pop-up Thesaurus is working?

    You can delete this post. I've solved my problem by using the following:

    Modify the Registry to Change the Value of the Thesaurus in the Data Key
    1. Quit all programs.
    2. Click Start and then click Run.
    3. In the Open box, type regedit and then click OK.
    4. Locate the following registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftShared ToolsProofing ToolsThesaurus 1033Normal
    5. Double-click Dictionary and then change the value from msth_am.lex to msthbus.lex.
