    Hi,

    I have implemented the SpellChecker in combination with RadEditor where I haven't used the RadEditor's AjaxSpellCheck tool, but I have pointed separate SpellChecker component to Radeditor's content area. I did this, because using the RadEditor's built-in AjaxSpellChecker doesn't provide the option of spell checking in new dialog box, but just an "inline" one, as far as I can see.
    Everything works fine if I use non-MSWord spell check provider (currently using TelerikProvider), as soon as I switched to MSWordProvider, I started to get MSWordAdapter.dll (or it’s dependencies) missing error. In my installation of Telerik controls I can see folder MSWordSupport under "Spell" folder, and there's only  instructions on how to setup the MS Word in dcomcnfg, which I have done exactly as you said. The version of MS Word, we have is MS Office 2007.. Then I tried to run the component, but with no success, again the same error.. Then I searched forums again and have found the set of three dlls that should be copied into the bin directory of my webapp. I did that, but again with no success.. Can you, please, advise? Thank you.

    Hello Adrian,

    The new RadSpell for ASP.NET AJAX control still does not support MS Word spellchecking, due to interoperability problems with the MsWordAdapter.dll. The problem is already logged in our bug tracking system and we will try to implement this feature for the next update of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX.

    As a side note, you should be aware that MS Word spellchecking uses significant amount of server resources and if a lot of users spellcheck their documents at the same time, this could considerably slow down your server. That is why my suggestion is to choose one of the other spellcheck algorithms SpellCheckProvider="EditDistanceProvider" or SpellCheckProvider="PhoneticProvider". The PhoneticProvider is convenient for the English, German and French dictionaries.

    Is this issue now resolved?

    I'd love to use the exanded word database from MS Word.
