Error "cannot load main spelling dictionary"


     Last week the error message "cannot load main spelling dictionary" started popping up. It pops up only after I have had Filemaker opened for 2 to 2-1/2 hours. But it pops up with all my FM files.

     It is occurring on 3 of our computers: one runs FM 11 Advanced on Windows 7, another runs FM 11 on Windows 7, and the last runs FM11 on Vista. The error message is not popping up on the two computers running XP (one of which hosts all the FM files).

     I already reinstalled FM, checked to make sure the dictionaries are in the proper folders, etc. Still keeps happening. Only workaround is to close FM and reopen, but then it happens again after a while. Only "permanent" workaround is to turn off the spell check.

     Anyone experienced same? Any suggestions? Thanks.
