Spell check software
Posted on 2016-11-23
Some years ago I developed an "acrostic constructor" using VB6 running under XP. I used "Vsspell" as an embedded spell checker. I recently got around to getting the program to work under Win7 by eliminating all OCXs and coding work-arounds. But I had to delete Vsspell. I was told that the version I had would not work in Win 7 or Win10. The latest version of Vsspell is only available in the complete suite which costs a bit over $1000.
My program used Vsspell to spell check text in VB6 text boxes. I've looked around the web for other spell checkers. I can write code to transfer the contents of a VB6 text box to a temporary notepad if that is necessary.
Question: Does anyone have a recommendation for a spell checker that I can call from a VB6 command button? That doesn't cost $1000?
It is possible that I have been misinformed. Should I try registering my old Vsspell OCX in Win7? I'm not confident dorking around with the registry. What is the command line syntax?
