I see that this is an upgrade. There is a known issue when upgrading from 5.5 to 6.0 but that causes a crash (more severe than just “not working”).

The issue is that the files used for the spell checker in 5.5 differ quite a bit from 6.0, but the 6.0 installer does not properly upgrade them. When XMetaL 6.0 asks the 5.5 spell checker to do things it can't do (the spell as you type feature) it crashes. The solution for this particular issue is to force XMetaL 6.0 to install the 6.0 spell checker files by following the steps outlined here: http://forums.xmetal.com/index.php/topic,983.0.html

If you aren't seeing crashes then you seem to have a different issue. However, you should still perform those steps to be sure.
