Technical Tips(PC): The Random House Dictionary
has a macro that can work with later versions of
Microsoft Word and Word Perfect.This macro creates an icon that lets you start up the Random House Dictionary when you are in Word Prefect, or Microsoft Word. Unfortunately, for more recent versions of these products, the default folder is incorrect and the installation dies with a 145 error code.
The correct way to install this macro is to:
Choose the Custom Install option
Select to install either Word Support or Word Perfect Support Files
Browse for the correct start up folder, (For later versions of Microsoft Word this is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Startup.)
After the install, when you open Word there is a small box in the upper left hand corner of the screen with "RHUD" and an "X" in the upper right to close it. You can click and drag this box to the toolbar or wherever you want it.
