 += Fix: GroupWise Spell Checker =
 +One of my users came with the weirdest spelling checker issues:
 +* All words are underlined as if they were wrong
 +* When it worked, and the language were changed, it didn't work anymore
 +* Correctly spelled words were underlined with suggestions from words that looked like the word
 +* All text was underlined with one big red line (blue in basic view)
 +Most strangest was, the computer was freshly installed and hold the latest GroupWise Client available. So I tried to reproduce it in my own client and I could. Turned out, when you open the spell checker the option "Show phonetic suggestions"​ was enabled, but even turned off, it kept giving phonetic options. I one time got everything fixed, and then I changed the spell checker language to Dutch and everything was broken again. ​
 +After some time searching I finally found the fix. I needed to change a registry setting:
 +Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
 +[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Novell\User Word List]
 +[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Novell\User Word List\6.1]
 +[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Novell\User Word List\6.1\NL]
 +[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Novell\User Word List\6.1\NL\User Word List 0]
 +"​Name"​="​C:​\\Documents and Settings\\SHooft\\Local Settings\\Application Data\\Novell\\GroupWise\\WT61NL.UWL"​
 +[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Novell\User Word List\6.1\US]
 +[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Novell\User Word List\6.1\US\User Word List 0]
 +"​Name"​="​C:​\\Documents and Settings\\SHooft\\Local Settings\\Application Data\\Novell\\GroupWise\\WT61US.UWL"​
 +Watch the hex keys, if you are experiencing the same problems, I bet the values of at least one of them is "​01"​ in stead of "​01,​00,​00,​00"​.
