Word Spell Check enable

Is there a way to enable spell checking in Word 2010 using a registry key change instead of modifying the installation? We have around 150 laptops in the field that need to have word spell check enabled, and I want to push a registry key, or a batch file out to the laptops to do this.

Thanks very much

I believe...

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Proofing Tools\1.0\Office]

Not 100% as I don't have 2010 to double check but this is what I found.

Thank you Sean
It seems that the Office Tools were not installed at the time of the word install. I found the registry key, but it won't work if the Office Tools are not installed.
I'm wondering if there is a silent install for that?

You would need to rerun the office setup.

You can do it and change the config.xml file to make sure it's set to be installed but otherwise there isn't any way to just push the proofing tools.


You could look at PDQ deploy to help with this as I've had good luck using that to deploy software.
