What is the correct way to add an add-in in Office 2010 (esp. Word)?

Hello,

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:

          dgnexcel.dll

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:

          dgnword.dll

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.

What is the correct way to add an add-in in Word 2010?

Thanks

Steve,
In the File...Options menu item, there is a tab for Add-Ins. In that tab there is a dropdown field where you can select COM add-ins. Once you have done that, click the Go... button.

If you see Dragon Naturally Speaking, check its box in the resulting dialog. If you do not see it, click the Add... button and navigate to the location of the .dll file. Make sure the box is checked after you have located the file.
