I have recently come across an issue in Outlook where users seem unable to to toggle the check box for AutoCorrect or Spell Check options in Outlook (a feature to correct typos or misspelled words text as you type). At first I thought that perhaps this was a permission problem. It turns out it was actually an issue with running a different version of Outlook to the version of Office installed on the computer. As email users with Thexyz can download the latest version of Outlook as per Exchange licensing agreements, a user will often update Outlook more often than the Office suite.
So far I have seen instances mostly running Outlook 2016 with other Office apps from 2013 or 2010.
For both Spell Check and AutoCorrect, Outlook is dependent upon Word and it looks for a Microsoft Word file called WinWord.exe in the folder where it is installed. You may just need to copy this file into the Outlook install folder as per steps below:
