Hi colleages,

The problem I have is this: My PC works currently with Windows 98/Office 2000, customized to Hebrew (it has spell checker for Hebrew and English). Every time I want to install software in Spanish, I don\'t succeed, because the system can\'t read the accents, etc. if they appear in the name of any file needed during the installation process. I always get an error message. So I have now a CD of a Spanish diccionary waiting for the publisher to develop a solution. But what is worse, is that I don\'t have a spell checker (that I need desperately)because of the same problem. My question is: does anyone know a solution for this problem other than reinstalling Windows, this time in English? and, do you think I will have the same problem if I try to install proofing tools Spanish for Office 97/2000? I hope someone out there can help me, because I am tired of collecting CD\'s (and spending money) that I can\'t use, and I really need the spell checker.

Thanks a lot,

First of all, please check Oct 20, 2002

if you have the multilanguage support installed in Windows:

Control panel - Add remove programs - Windows istaller - Multilanguage support (I have Polish Windows, so these options may look somewhat different in your version).


Please post some feedback after checking.

In regards to your last question Oct 20, 2002

Good morning,


In regards to your last question:


\"My question is: does anyone know a solution for this problem other than reinstalling Windows, this time in English? and, do you think I will have the same problem if I try to install proofing tools Spanish for Office 97/2000?\"


I can tell you that I have Windows in English and I have no problems what so ever in installing French software as well as the French & Spanish proofing tools for Office 2000 (and also for office 97 a few years back)...


I hope this helps you a little.


Nathalie

Hi Natalie, thanks for answering. I checked and I do seem to have the Multilanguage support. What do I do next?

Thanks, Diana

Hi Nathalie,


It is already a help to see people care enough to answer other\'s messages. Your answer got me even closer to the conclusion that I will have to reinstall Windows, this time in English. Thanks,


Diana
