Spell checker & Thesarus for Wordworth 7 PC version

I have a copy of the PC version of Wordworh 7 but never had the spell checker or thesarus for it. Does anyone know of these items and where I could get them?

on eab ftp server you can find wordworth 7 is in this archive.
you can open the iso with winrar.
it comes with german, english and french dictionary and thesaurus.
in folder spell you find the 3 versions. just copy the desired one to your installation and look what happens.

ps: really version 7 for pc? i only could find version 1.0 for windows95 on Amigan abandonware website
(IBM-PC Software section on that page). this comes with dictionary only.

I kid you not its Wordworth 7 PC version. It started life as an evaluation copy and some kind soul granted me a key code for it. Its not a patch on the Amiga version but it as far as I know saves in WW format which a real Amiga version should be able to read directly. When I figure out a way to transfer files from my Windows 7 machine (NO FLOPPY) to my new A1200 I will test this out. I find its great for bashing out a letter plus you can include pictures etc and they are easier to move about than in Word. The only minor annoyance with it is when you close it Windows thinks the programme has crashed and asks to send a report to Microsoft. More a Windoze problem than a Wordworth one I think.

Anyway to me Word is like trying to crack a nut with a sledgehammer and Wordworth 7 is very light on resources which is why I would love to get the spell checker & Thesarus to complete it.

PM me if you would like me to send you a copy PS It only works on a 32 bit PC so I have it on my desktop not my 64 bit laptop.

PS I sent a copy to the guy in Australia runs the Amiga abandonware site and he says he will add it to his site when the CD arrives.
