I get this message when trying to activate MS Word Spelling Checker plug in:

(-2147221164): The format of the file "WordSpellCheck2" is invalid. This plug-in will be disabled.

It worked fine until today, and I made no change to TagEditor or MS Word lately (and spellcheck in Word works normally).

What should I do?

Thanks for any help...

Try to re-load May 24, 2009

Hi Tomas,
you can try disabling and re-loading the spelling checker plug-in. This has always worked for me.
Otherwise, you can also try closing TE, killing winword.exe from within the Task Manager and re-launching TE.

Easy! May 25, 2009

You must have launched Word before launching TegEditor...
Hit ALT+CTRL+DEL, go to Pococesses and Kill WINWORD.EXE process (processes tree).
That's all!
