  • Try to use the ‘ru_RU_UTF-8_20131101.zip’ https://code.google.com/p/hunspell-ru/ ..
  • OS Windows 7 SP1(x64,rus); MS VS Ulimate 2012 ver 11.0.61030.00 Update 4, VS: Environment/Select language/Language: Russian; MS .NET Framework 4.5.50938
  • The dictionary is copied to the folder C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Local\EWSoftware\Visual Studio Spell Checker\ru_RU_UTF-8_20131101 (were recode it in UTF-8(without BOM))
  • Chose it in dialogue MS VS: Service/Spell Checker/Edit Configuration.
    • In the User Dictionary list appeared,
    • However, the possibility of switching to Default Language ‘ru-ru’ - no, there is only ‘en-US’ (http://1drv.ms/1t3Usjt)
  • When attempting to use of selecting from a list have the text in the form: ??? (http://1drv.ms/1t3UDex)
  • Question: I'm doing something wrong? How to make it work correctly?

Found what was the problem :-)

Instead of a subdirectory
The dictionary is copied to the folder C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Local\EWSoftware\Visual Studio Spell Checker\ru_RU_UTF-8_20131101
you should use exactly the subdirectory

-> C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Local\EWSoftware\Visual Studio Spell Checker\
