Akelpad ver 4.5.5 is able to use ASpell (Win32 version) to spell check documents. You may receive the error: “ASpell core not found” after selecting Plugins ->Spell Check ->Check Document. Even although ASpell may be installed in Program Files, Akelpad searches for it in its default location of “C:\Program Files\AkelPad\AkelFiles\Plugs\SpellCheck” regardless of the core path setting under Plugins ->Spell Check ->Settings. In fact, if a path to ASpell is entered into the ASpell core path setting, the program may crash. These issues appear to be a bug in the program, but there is a workaround:

  • Open Plugins ->Spell Check ->Setting (1st screenshot)
  • Make sure no path is specified in the ASpell core path setting (2nd screenshot) and hit “OK”
  • Copy the ASpell folders of data, bin, and dict to the Akelpad “\Plugs\SpellCheck” directory (3rd screenshot)
  • Restart Akelpad. Spell checking should now work
