I have recently updated one of our AutoCAD machines from 2012 to AutoCAD 2013 LT and I keep getting an annoying error when opening a text box (Unable to find Dictionary, could not start speller)
I have done some googling and I have found multiple solutions from removing the dictionaries then adding them back; copying the files over from the 2012 install and using the open office dictionary instead.
Any solutions much appreciated
OS - Windows 7 (x86) SP1
I figured so, this is a pretty common problem (not the dictionary thing specifically, but messed up paths).
Go into Options, Files tab, look at your support file search paths.
Do they all seem to be correct for 2013?
Are there any 2012 references?
Based on what I've seen, AutoCAD is looking for the DCT file(s) and can't find them because the place it/they reside is not in the support file search path.
There was one pointing to 2012 I have swapped it to a 2013 but the error persists.
I noticed that dictionaries has a red sign saying this is controlled by the registry, do you know the registry string to be able to modify the file path to dictionaires?
I know this is an older post, but I recently had the same issue.
We found that there was a missing support path that should have been listed in"Support File Search Path" in the Options dialog box.
We added "C:\program files\autodesk\autocad 2012-english\support" back into the listing and all was good after that.
Didnt even have to restart AutoCAD. (how often does that happen)
Hope this helps someone else too!
