I recently upgraded a client to Windows XP Professional from Windows ME. The client has Works 6.0 which was bundled with his computer (an Emachines 1000b). Following the upgrade, every attempt to spell-check a document fails with this error message:

"Works cannot finish checking spelling and Grammar check because an error occured."

I could find nothing on the Microsoft KB which speaks to this as an XP problem.

I notice that under Works; Tools...Options...Proofing Tools, the list box for the spelling dictionary is completely empty.

I searched off files ending in the extension *.lex and found several. These might be the spelling dictionaries Works relies on?

How do I restore spelling checks in Works?
