Hi There,

I recently updated to Windows 7 Home Premium and now I can't install my Routledge electronic dictionary.

Does anyone have a workaround?

with Oxford Spellchecker & Dictionary 1.2 (with Office 2010: there is apparently a solution for Windows 7 + Office 2007).

The Word-integration (macro) for Merriam-Webster's doesn't work either.

Merriam-Webster's support sent a workaround that doesn't work. UK Oxford University Press support simply explained that the product is discontinued and I'm out of luck. US OUP support sent advice that is not related to Office 2010.

I imagine that there are a lot of translators with similar problems - maybe something will turn up.

I don't have Windows 7, but have heard of similar problems.

Read here and maybe give it a try:
