Catalyst 8.0 seems to have the ability to use MS Office spell-checking engine. However when I try to select this option I get a message 'No Microsoft application found'.

I have Office 2003 installed, spell-checking in TagEditor (which also uses Office components) works ok. What other Microsoft application would Catalyst need?

Check your .NET Programmability Oct 27, 2009

Can you please make sure you have the option .NET Programmability Support enabled for Microsoft Office Word if not you will need to enable this. To check if you have this enable please follow the steps below – to enable this feature you will need the Microsoft Office installation CD:

1. Close Catalyst
2. Go to Control Panel
3. Add or Remove Programs
4. Scroll down to your Microsoft Office installation and choose change
5. Tick Add or Remove Features and click next
6. Tick choose advanced customization of applications and click next
7. Expand Microsoft Office Word
8. Enable .NET Programmability Support
9. Update

Thanks and regards,
