I just installed Office 2010 home and student and Outlook 2010 on a new Windows 7 box.  It is not an upgrade from 2007.  In outlook, the autocorrect options are grayed out.  I haven't found much information out there regarding this problem but was wondering if anyone has a work-around for this issue.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It's actually supposed to do that. If you have Outlook 2010 installed without the entire office suite it isn't supposed to work. Home and student doesn't count.

Although moving the winword.exe file to the same directory as the outlook.exe file does seem to work. I learn something new every time I get on here.

The link was referring to an upgrade from 2007 - had a copy handy so I installed it also.  Moved winword.exe to Office14 folder and it worked.  It looks like it will work only if you have 2007 or a previous version in addition to 2010.  It doesn't appear there is even a winword.exe anymore in the newest version.
