After updating emacs to version 26.1 on a windows machine, I get the following error message from flyspell:
Error enabling Flyspell mode: (c:/Program Files (x86)/Aspell/bin/aspell.exe release 0.60 or greater is required)
The problem is, even after installing a windows binary of aspell 0.6 from here, it still doesn't work because apparently
The Aspell 0.60 library is binary compatible with the Aspell 0.50 library. For this reason I chose _not_ to increment the major version number (so-name) of the shared library by default [...]
Has anybody else had this problem already? Are emacs users relying on aspell on windows, or rather using alternatives like hunspell?
