I just purchased Word 2011 for office used. When my user open some of the Word document, it keep on pop up the following warning message
Word cannot start the spelling checker.
The spelling checker files may be missing.
Make sure the spelling checker files are
installed or use the Microsoft Office Installer
to install the spelling checker.
Once the warning message pop up, you cannot access the document at all. To solve this problem, just follow the following steps:-
- Open Word 2011
- Click on Tools > Auto Correct > Show All
- Open Spelling and Grammar
- Under Spelling, remove the tick from ‘Check Spelling as you type’
You should be able to open the older document now. You may save it in the new Word 2011 format and enable back the spellchecker.
