Note The following information does not apply to Windows Vista SP2, Windows 7, or Windows 8.
- When a Feature On Demand (FoD) language package is installed in Windows, the corresponding language is supported for the spelling check. However, not all languages that have an FoD language package are supported for the spelling check. Only the languages that the corresponding FoD language package has installed in Windows are supported.
Note When you add a specific language keyboard, Windows 10 automatically downloads and installs the corresponding FoD package from Windows Update. This process may require connectivity to the Internet, and may take several hours to finish. For more information, see the instructions for Windows 8.1.
- The spelling checker isn't supported for Partial Trust conditions.
- Custom dictionaries no longer function as per-control dictionaries starting with the .NET Framework 4.6.1. These dictionaries exhibit the following behavior:
- Dictionaries that are registered by any TextBox or RichTextBox control affect all other instances of those controls within the application.
- Dictionaries that are registered by any TextBox or RichTextBox control affect controls in other processes that have the spelling checking enabled.
- The system will impose a limit on the cumulative size of custom dictionaries that can be registered in a user session. When this limit is reached, the underlying spell-checking system (which is part of Windows) silently ignores additional requests for registration of custom dictionaries.
