OE 6.0 SPELL CHECK
 
I can't get Spell Checker to work on my x64 XP 2003 sp2 with office 2003

OS Name Microsoft(R) Windows(R) XP Professional x64 Edition
Version 5.2.3790 Service Pack 2 Build 3790
Other OS Description Not Available
OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation
System Name FAMILY
System Manufacturer BIOSTAR Group
System Model R690A-M2T
System Type x64-based PC
Processor AMD64 Family 15 Model 67 Stepping 3 AuthenticAMD ~2993 Mhz
Processor AMD64 Family 15 Model 67 Stepping 3 AuthenticAMD ~2993 Mhz
BIOS Version/Date Phoenix Technologies, LTD 6.00 PG, 12/13/2007
SMBIOS Version 2.5
Windows Directory C:\WINDOWS
System Directory C:\WINDOWS\system32
Boot Device \Device\HarddiskVolume1
Locale United States
Hardware Abstraction Layer Version = "5.2.3790.3959
(srv03_sp2_rtm.070216-1710)"
User Name FAMILY\Administrator
Time Zone Eastern Standard Time
Total Physical Memory 3,966.20 MB
Available Physical Memory 3.20 GB
Total Virtual Memory 5.62 GB
Available Virtual Memory 5.24 GB
Page File Space 2.00 GB
Page File C:\pagefile.sys
blah, blah, blah...

What I have learned is that there are two sets of OE software; one in
C:\Program Files (x86)\Outlook Express
and one in
C:\Program Files\Outlook Express

And they don't match.
csapi3t1.dll 1.0.0.2415 March 29, 2006, 7:00:00 AM in the x86 directory
and
CSAPI3T1.DLL 1.0.0.2415 Tuesday, December 15, 1998, 2:33:46 PM
in the
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\PROOF directory

(clearly Microsoft hasn't mastered version control yet)

All my efforts to synchronize these three locations have failed.
First I simply coppied the latest to the x86 directory; only to have it
mysterioulsy revert to the old; then I deleted all the OE code in the x86;
and again it all came back mysteriously. Then I deleted all the OE code in
both directorys; again it mysteriously cameback -- unsynchronized as before.

So I watched task manager in fast refresh mode and I think culprit is
winlogon.exe; which makes no sense.

Any novel ideas?

Re: OE 6.0 SPELL CHECK
 
John:
Basically OE in Windows XP x64 is a 64-bit program and it can't
can't access spell check from Word because it's a 32-bit program. OE doesn't
have a built-in spell check, it relies on spell check from another program
like Word. As a work around in XP x64 I would cut and paste the reply from
OE to a blank Word document run spell check then cut and paste it back to
OE. With Vista OE is replaced with Windows Mail which has a built-in spell
check. Have a great day.
