The following instructions will allow you to install the spell-check specifically for Word 2007.
Insert the 31st edition disc into the drive. If it "autostarts" into a program, cancel that program and close it.
Next, open the program called "My Computer" (or "Computer" if you have Vista/Windows 7) It will either be on your desktop or on the Start menu.
RIGHT-click on the cd-rom or dvd-rom drive that has the disc in it. A pop-up menu will offer you a choice of EXPLORE. Select that option.
On the resulting list of files and folders, double-click on the folder called "spellex". Do the same thing on the folder labeled, "pc". Now, find and open the folder called "2k7".
Within that folder you will find a file labeled, "Setup.exe" (it may be identified as a "launcher" or "application"). Run that file. This will begin the installation.
Complete the installation and then restart your system. When you re-enter Windows, the spell-checker should work correctly within MS Word at that time.
A Word document icon should appear on your desk top; this is a document that will allow you to test the speller.
Great results for medical students,USMLE, juniors and graduates
It ships fast.
5 star plus for seller and Amazon
I'm pleased with the dictionary, but I can use the dictionary in the library where I study. I purchased the dictionary so I could reference it while at home, etc. But I was motivated to buy it based on the included CD and the internet access. Both very disappointing. As a student I cannot carry the dictionary with me wherever I go, even if I would like to do so. The online access is dreadfully slow. When you type in a word (most of the time the website won't load within 60seconds and I give up) even if there is an exact match it doesn't take you to that screen, just to a screen with the word--which you then have to click to get to the final destination--what's the point in that?
As for the CD, it's not working right now, but that's a problem with my computer. I had hoped that either the CD or the website would be easy to use. I just noticed that it says on the label "single user version." That means that every single time you want to use the dictionary on your computer the CD has to be in the drive. I ask again, what's the point in that? Some lightweight laptops don't even have CD drives currently. Why should I need to carry the CD everywhere as well---I wanted a program I could install--that's what I was lead to believe I was purchasing. Not too mention the program is load and slow when it must be run from a CD drive--that's why people install programs.
I have a Merriam Webster Dictionary--which after about 6 years I discovered the CD in the back cover. It works like a dream.Read more ›
In this edition, the CD-ROM is interesting. Especially, Dorland's Pocket Medical Dictionary PDA software is convenient.
Unfortunately, Dorland's Electronic Medical Speller is not able to be installed to MS office 2007 on Windows Vista.
This CD-ROM runs on Windows OS only.
