It didn't help, copied over the profile, still it didn't work, reinstall the word .....doesn't work either.

Adding Word 97 Thesaurus

by Shanghai Sam In reply to how to add word 97 thesau ...

To add the Word Thesaurus in a PC that already has Word on it, you'll need the CD/disks. With MS Office Suite, I've ran the setup, and go to Custom installation. Then weed through all the sub menu selections and check the boxes. I believe when doing this, the application will detect what you already have installed and those should/would be already checked off. It's been my experience that when loading any MS product and choosing the "typical" installation, Bill and his boys up in Seattle onlygive you the installation that they know will absolutely run stable. With the Custom installation selected, you'll be able to add to or decline what would be typically installed. I'm more familiar with the Office Suite than just the "Word97" application, but since both are MS, I'm sure it's the same with just the "Word" application on installing or adding on. Hope this is of some assistance. You can probably test it on a non-production PC before you go out in the work place. Good luck.
