Why won’t Microsoft Office 2013 install the English spell checker?

Hayat Djevdjet December 8, 2012

Hello, I have a problem with the English spell checker of Microsoft Word 2013. So I installed Microsoft Word 2013 x64 on Windows 8 x64 and tried to install the English spell checker but it didn’t work. I also tried with the Bulgarian spell checker and it works fine. I don’t know what the problem might be with the English one. By the way when I try the preview version of the English spell checker it works, but with the final version it doesn’t. Does anyone know what is the problem?

    I'm using the final versions of both Word and the English Proofing Tool, and it doesn't work.

    its a preview version. there might be bugs with it so you cant expect everything to work properly till the final release.

    There are CUSTOM.dic, ExcludeDictionaryBG0402.lex and ExcludeDictionaryEn0409.lex in that folder. And when I try to add either of these .lex files, it says only .dic format could be added.

    Here's what I found, maybe it will work for you.

    Is there any .DIC or .dic file reserved in the following path?


    If so, back up all these files. Add the custom dictionaries via:

    Click the File tab.
    Click Options.
    Click Proofing.
    Make sure the Suggest from main dictionary only check box is cleared.
    Click Custom Dictionaries.

    Click Add.
    Locate the folder containing the custom dictionary you want, and then double-click the dictionary file.
