Spell Checker

P: n/a
I have an app running at a client where, when the spell checker is
supposed to run, it reports "Can't start spell checker because it is
not installed".

I have never had this before - it works fine at other user sites and
on my development setup.

The app runs on MS Access 2002 runtime.

Is there maybe an incompatibility with Office 2007?

The spell-checker is an Office-Wide component so the runtime can only
use it if a compatible version of Office is also installed. I don't
think the 2002 runtime can use the Office 2007 spell-checker.

2002 runtime can use the Office 2007 spell-checker.
Might be able to do so if the 2002-format MDB/MDE were created on a system
with Office 2007, and the References were properly set, though.

I don't think the 2002 runtime can use the Office 2007
spell-checker.

What references do you set for the spell checker? I thought that was
an Office component that Access uses directly? It's on the Tools
menu in interactive Access, so I'd think no reference changes could
*ever* make it work.
