The walk through included in the CD main menu did not work for Word 2007, so I got instructions from their tech help.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
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.

The book is brand new (basically). It does contain the 31st edition CD, however, I'm unable to access contents because the 32nd edition is now out for download. I've written to the company to see if they can help.

It is a great no less than a great medical dictionary I had ever seen; something that if you do not read a book just look at it page by page.
Great results for medical students,USMLE, juniors and graduates
It ships fast.
5 star plus for seller and Amazon

note: this part of the review was written when I first purchased the text, some of my happier thoughts can be found further down in the review...

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.

If you need to invest in a very good medical dictionary; you got it right here. I received mine yesterday and my co-workers were very interested in it. One of them actually ordered the dictionary immediately when she saw mine. Yes, it is a big book and not one you would like to walk around with casually. However, at over 124,000 entries and free online access to more words, spell-checker, over 35,000 audio recordings and more; size does not really matter it's the content and remember it is illustrated so there are many interested pictures. Unlike other medical dictionary Dorland's has definitions from the beginning of the book to end. Every space is taken up to give you more for your money, and it does not stop there as mentioned before because the book also comes with a CD. Definately a good reference book for the office or home. Very happy with my purchase. I did not get mine from Amazon, I got it at another discounted outlet for less. I still say that Amazon has the best prices overall.

This is the most recent edition of Dorland's Illustrated Medical Dictionary. I have earlier editions, both a pocket edition and a regular edition. I find it useful for English reading, as a matter of course, of medicine.

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.
