Hello Collegues
I'm working on Windows 7 - Office 2010 on a Virtual Machine with Parallels.

I've installed Office 2010 to get the spellchecker for MemoQ. But it seems there are no dictionaries and spellcheck is not allowed. This problem also affects Word documents, therefore it seems the problem is Office and not MemoQ.

The strange, is that I also use Studio 2014 on the same Windows/VM and I could run spellcheck even if there was not Office installed.

Do you have any idea how I can get the spellchecker?
