Default Word 2007 - English (UK) grammar and spell checking problems

Hi,
I recently upgraded to Office 2007 (from Office XP plus Excel 2007 beta 2),
having first removed my previous Office installations and then installed the
new Office version (Professional Plus). However, I cannot perform spelling or
grammar check with my default language (English UK) - if I do, Word tells me
that it cannot find the proofing tools for English (UK)... If I try to load
the thesaurus, I get an even stronger error (Microsoft Office Word cannot
open the thesaurus... Windows Installer error 1605...). Thing however seem to
be OK if I select English (US) as my language (but that does not help me
much!). I have tried repairing the installation and have tried manually
copying the MSGR3EN.dll to a (manually created) 2057 subdirectory of ....
Microsoft Shared\Proof but to no avail. Can anyone help fix this error or
suggest a possible work around? There are no updates of Office 2007 and no
options that I can find that would enable the English (UK) language settings
to work properly...
Any help greatly appreciated.
Many thanks and best wishes, Boris.

If you still haven't gotten this to work, try asking in the Office.setup
newsgroup.

Default Word 2007 - English (UK) grammar and spell checking problems

Dear Cindy,
Many thanks for your response. In the meantime, I have uninstalled the
Office 2007 system and completely reinstalled. Although the installation
appears to be identical, the writing tools of UK now work fine and I assume I
had some rogue setting in the registry that was not corrected by a simple
"repair". Thanks foryour suggestion though. And I do have a further query
that I have posted to this gropup but perhaps should also post to the office
setup group: the Svae As PDF or XPS add-on always fails when I try to use it
and I have not been able, as yet, top save even extremely simple text only
documents to either XPS or PDF. I wonder if this might be as I have Acrobat
Profeesional 8 installed (although I am still awaiting the update for support
of Office 2007 from Adobe) but, should you have any ideas or suggestions, I
would be most grateful if you could share them.
Many thanks again ad bes wishes, Boris.
