I recently installed Powerpoint 2007 on my computer and spell check is not working. Whenever I type in a misspelled word this error comes up.

"Microsoft Office PowerPoint can not perform language identification. This feature is not available. To make this feature available, run Setup again, click "Add or Remove Features" and change the feature to "Run from my computer".

When I get to the add and remove features section I am not sure which feature I have to select to get spell check working.

Are you trying to open an email attachment? – Silviu May 19 '12 at 15:07
Is this happening in a brand new, blank presentation? Which language is your Windows in? Do yo have any additional languages installed? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 May 19 '12 at 15:14
No I am not trying to open an email attachment and my computer's language is in English. I tried using a custom install of Microsoft Office and just installing power point on my hard drive. – Wyatt W May 20 '12 at 18:04
