Dear colleagues,

TagEditor's Word spelling checker does not work: when I run it, it says "The spelling check is complete", but I know it is not.

I have two machines:

Acer Laptop, Intel Pentium 1.60GHz, 2GB RAM, Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit.

PC, AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 3800+ 2 GHz, 4GB RAM, Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit.

Involved software (same on both machines): Trados Studio SP3, SDL MultiTerm SP3, TagEditor, Workbench, Word 2007.

Now, on the first machine everything works fine. And that's exactly what is puzzling me: TagEditor's Word spelling checker refuses to work on the second machine, which has exactly the same software environment.

This is what I have been trying on the second machine:

1. New, clean install of both Trados (complete suite) and Office.
2. Registering of SDL Trados 2007 (batch utility).
3. Every possible combination of normal run/run as administrator involving Trados and Word.

Nothing did it. Now I'm using the Winter Tree spelling checker, which forces me to edit ttx files which are set to swiss italian as destination language (Winter Tree has just IT-IT).

Any clue?
