Default Proofing not installed and I can't find where to get it. RRS feed

  • Question

  • My spell checker will not work in MS Office 2010.  When I check the >File>opetions>language panel I find that there is no default language proffing installed.

    Talked to Dell, they said to rerun the MS Office 2010 trial version then use my activation key to update it.  I did.  No change.  I went to the MS site linked to that page in >languages "Office 2010 Language Options". selected English, there is a note that I may already have that language--which seems logical as I can't see someone selling me a word processor without a spell checker.  The download there did not change my system.

    Is there some way I can have a spell checker in Word 2010?

    Thanks

  • Hi Mystical,

    I have a friend with the same problem, can you please explain how you fixed the problem. The link below has various options for 2007, which I will try, but would be easier if I could tell my friend which one fixes the issue.

     

    They have a preloaded version of Office 2010 Home & Student which just required an activation key.

    Thanks,

    Mr Helpful (almost!) ;o)
