<div>Hi ,</div><div> </div><div>I tried to install spell check manually with FAQ info but with no luck.</div><div><h3 id="manual_win32_spellcheck_installation">Is there a way to install Spell-checking support manually?<a class="anchor" title="Link to this section" href="http://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/Installing%20Pidgin#manual_win32_spellcheck_installation"></a></h3>
Yes, if the installer isn't able to successfully download and install the dictionaries, you can do so manually.
Versions 2.7.0 and newer use the dictionaries available from the <a class="ext-link" href="http://extensions.services.openoffice.org/en/dictionaries"><span class="icon">openoffice extension download site</span></a>.
You need to download the appropriate language extension file(s) (files are openoffice extensions <tt>*.oxt</tt>, which are just zip files that contain additional data).
Once you have downloaded a dictionary extension file, you can rename it so it has a <tt>.zip</tt> extension and then extract the <tt>*.dic</tt> and <tt>*.aff</tt> files in it to <tt><Pidgin Installation Directory>\spellcheck\share\enchant\myspell\</tt> (create the directories if they don't exist already).<br>
If Pidgin is running, it will need to be restarted for new dictionaries to be recognized.
Versions older than 2.7.0 use Aspell; you can download both the Aspell core and a dictionary from <a class="ext-link" href="http://aspell.net/win32"><span class="icon">the win32 Aspell website</span></a>.
