Hi, Vip!

Watch out that there are several path variables which you can define in Emacs! E.g. the MS Windows PATH variable which applies to the cmd-shell in Emacs. Regarding aspell or other tools that Emacs relies on, make sure that they are included in the <exec-path> variable.

AFAIK, the MS Windows Environment Variable PATH should be included in <exec-path> automatically but in my case (GNU Emacs 22.1 on MS Windows XP) this failed. Therefore, I set all path variables separately in my .emacs file, e.g. I include the aspell/ispell path explicitly in my <exec-path>

(setq-default exec-path '(
;; GNU Utils
"C:/cygwin/bin/"
"C:/Program Files/Aspell/bin/"
;; MS Windows Integration
"."
"C:/WINDOWS/"
"C:/WINDOWS/system32/"
"C:/WINDOWS/System32/Wbem/"
"C:/Program Files/Support Tools/"
))


Hope this helps.

Will

I reinstalled emacs 22 on XP because I had put a different ispell.el
in there.  Emacs is at c:\Program Files\Emacs and Ispell is at
c:\Program Files\Common Files\ISpell, It can't find it. Ispell.el says
I have to set some variables. Some of them look too unixy too me (they
have stuff like /usr/ in them).

On DOS with emacs 18 I am doing a bit better.. it is looking for english.hash
