Question

Microsoft Word Dictionary Error

By Rabbit_Runner ·
Tags: Software
I am using Office 2019 (Not O365). I've installed it on my Windows 10 PC, and the application words very well. My job involves a fair amount of writing, therefore, I use the dictionary and thesaurus a great deal.

However, I get the following error when using the thesaurus: "We're having trouble connecting to the Office Store to help you get a free or premium dictionary. Please try again later."

Please note, I do not have an O365 subscription.

My question, does this error happen because I don't have an O365 account, or is there something wrong with my installation of Office 2019, or is there a component missing, or what is going on?

Please help.

Sort of.

Microsoft has, according to what I see and read, mandated we get their login and account to get some updates. But NO to the O365 part of the question.

As to the install of Office 2019 I have yet to run into a bum install. But there were those crack pirate copies out there and with those, no bet I would make if they work OK.

You paid for Office 2019 so make that call.
