Cannot Install Components from Edit Mode


Following documentation, we have three red x's next to


Spellchecker, Microsoft Office Support                                    A component that enables the EPiServer CMS 5 Editor to use Microsoft Word spellchecker.                Component is not installed
                    Export to Excel, Microsoft Office Support                                    A component that can export forms data to Microsoft Excel.                Component is not installed
                    Advanced File Upload                                    A component that enables support for advanced file upload, for example drag-and-drop. Component is not installed

            You are using version N/A of EPiServer Client Components

When we press the install button, the pop up loads, but we just get a red x appear.

Any Ideas?

I've had this issue too. I think my collegaue solved it by installing all three one after another.

Did you uncomment the Office Integration in web.config?

    Uncomment the following section replace UI in the path attribute with your customized UI path 
    to enable Office integration in the application. 
  <!--<location path="EPiServer/CMS/OfficeIntegration">
        <allow users="*" />

Yes, is uncommented out in the web.config, and amended the UI path to our own.

Been reading in blogs about manually extracting the dll's from the C:/Program Files... episerver etc etc, but no joy with that either.

Anyone know exactly what I have to type into the command prompt to get it to work?

Many Thanks.
