When u say it won't install what do u mean? Do you get some kind of error code, or something?

It should install no problems, let us know what it says when you try to install it and we can probably help you through it, maybe.



it installed but it doesent want to work/ dont know whats up with it compatible.

hmmm, go to microsofts webpage they had a patch for that spellchecker thing, I seen a while back.

97 should work no problems.


I really need the error code, to help you.


I cant figure it out it doesnt give me any error. it loads up and says it was installed. but then when i go to spell check in outlook. it just says an error occured while spelling was being checked. @##@. I tried to unistall then install, but no sucess.?????? the word opened fine. I went to options on outlook and made sure all the right boxes where checked to perform spellcheck but no luck/I went to microsoft website. did what they said. no luck????? bummer./

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
