    It seems that the component does not work in IE9, based on clicking around on the RadSpell demos on the site.  After a few clicks, the popup window shows up, but is blank. 

    I have also had the issue on a simple web application when debugging in Visual Studio.  Seems an exception is thrown when trying to create an iframe element (if in IE).  I have attached the screenshot from VS.

    Hi Chris,

    The reported problem is fixed in Q3 2010 beta release. You can verify this by testing the Default Example of the beta spellchecker at: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax-beta/spell/examples/whatsnew/defaultcs.aspx.

    I have the same problem, RadSpell stopped working when clients upload to IE9.

    The main problem with this is that when I download and upgrade the telerik dll it breaks a load of other things in the projects, including slide panels, panel zones, and multi-select drop downs.

    The second problem is that you have fixed in a new release, which requires us to BUY the fix for a defective component.

    I have to say I am fed up with this "buy to stay alive" mentality - service packs and hot fixes should be free.

    If you do not want to upgrade to a version of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX which officially supports IE9, than you can fix the problem by rendering the page in IE8 mode via the following meta tag:

    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE8" />
