What is the correct way to add an add-in in Office 2010 (esp. Word)?
Posted on 2011-09-25
I am running Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10 (DNS) and Office 2010 and although DNS is functioning fine in Excel, it is doing nothing in Word.
In checking for the add-ins, I found the Excel add-in to be present (listed as NatSpeak Excel AddIn). However, the Word add-in is nowhere to be found. I have found it in the past to be disabled but never to be completely absent.
Going back to the add-ins option area in Excel, I found that the DNS add-in file for Excel is called:
and resides in the following directory:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Nuance\NaturallySpeaking10\Program\dgnexcel.dll
Next I browsed to that same directory in Windows Explorer, and scrolling down, found a file called:
which seems pretty obviously to be the DNS add-in for Word.
Going back to the Word add-in area, I snooped around for a way to designate that file or browse to the folder in which it is contained but could find nothing.
