I just installed it and it works to give me the list of misspelled words in the messages window, however I don't get the pop-up that offers corrections. It would also be nice to be able to add words to dictionary (eg. "param") but it's already been a great help.
I have almost the same configuration as the previous reviewer except Office 2007 instead of 2003. Win7 64-bit; VS2008 team system; Office 2007;
I'd love to be able to use it; Its installed, but never shows up in the Add-in Menu. I'm running Win7 64-bit; VS2008 pro; Office 2003; The add-in is physically installed into My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Addins folder and I can see the .Addin xml file, and the "SpellChecker" sub-folder, and all the dlls inside that folder... but it just never loads.
Prior to me finding this post, I had downloaded your previous version (which is now un-installed), and I could not get it to work either; it would appear in the Addin Mgr Menu, but choosing tools/SpellCheck just launched an invisible copy of WINWORD.EXE.
If you could offer up some things to try, I'd love to see this work.
First of all Thank you for providing such a nice tool.i came to know that, we can use this tool for spell check file wise. is there anyway i can use the same to get the spell check done for my entire project with a single click (Instead of going to each file and clicking spell check in Tools Menu Manually). Please let me know how can we achieve this using this tool.
Thank you for the article on macro.
I am getting an error(Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a com component) on this line of macro DTE.ExecuteCommand("HTMLSpellChecker.Connect.HTMLSpellChecker"), I already installed VSSpellChecker on my machine. I tried by renaming HTMLSpellChecker with VSSpellChecker in the DTE.ExecuteCommand, but still no luck. seems like i am not able to frame the ExecuteCommand properly, can you please help me in framing the parameters to ExecuteCommand.may be i am addressing wrong component name.
Please also let me know, is it possible to run either this macro or spell checker from command prompt, if so can you please suggest any article for that?
Once again thank you very much for this tool and information.
Looks like an excellent add-in. I only wish I could use it. It crashes when loading. :( I have the following versions installed (as well as a bunch of hotfixes).
Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 - Version 9.0.30729.1 SP
Microsoft .NET Framework - Version 3.5 SP1
I keep getting an error that states it "cannot find (Path)\ VSSpellChecker.dll Error: 126". The problem here is that the path is shortened. My Visual Studio 2008 folder is out on our network in my my documents folder. The path that the error message is showing has cut off the begging of the UNC path.
