Windows 7: Trouble Saving MS Word Documents with Dragon Naturally Speaking

Trouble Saving MS Word Documents with Dragon Naturally Speaking

Someone in my office uses Dragon Naturally Speaking v11 and when he tries to save a document in MS Word it will not let him do so. I looked at it and noticed the it keeps trying to save the file in the Programs/Nuance/Naturally Speaking folder (which is wrong) and we do not know how to change it except manually each time. Is there a way to change the default location for saving files (not autosave)?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Run Lenovos on Windows 7.0 Home Premium 64-Bit with 4 GB RAM, if that matters.

For Office 2010:

File - Options - Save tab. Check default file location.

For earlier versions of Office.

If changing it does not solve the problem, you should deal with Dragon Naturally Speaking settings.
