Dictionary Installation

File Viewer Plus supports spell-checking dictionaries for each of its languages. When you install a dictionary associated with your language, the software automatically detects the dictionary and uses it. For example, if you are using a German version of Windows and you have installed a "de" dictionary (the language code for German), then File Viewer Plus uses the German dictionary. If you do not install any dictionaries, the preinstalled English dictionary is used by default.

NOTE: The first version of File Viewer Plus Enterprise that supports dictionary installation is 4.0.2.

To install a dictionary for your language, follow the instructions below.

  1. Download the dictionary for your language from the downloads page.
  2. Unzip the downloaded file (e.g., de.zip) and place the three extracted files (e.g., de.aff, de.dic, and de-license.txt) in the following directory of the File Viewer Plus installation:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\File Viewer Plus 5\lib\dictionaries\

To look up your Windows language code, use the Get-Culture command in PowerShell. The first two characters of the Name value are the language code that File Viewer Plus uses. In the example below, Get-Culture shows that a German version of Windows is active, and the language code is "de".
