[Tex/LaTex] Spellchecker in Lyx 2.1.4 Does Not Work


I just upgraded to Lyx 2.1.4 from Lyx 2.1.3 and the spellchecker does not work — it asks if I want to start from the beginning and then closes like it found no errors. I am using Windows 7 with a clean default install of Lyx. Any ideas on how to get the spellchecker working again?

I think I found the problem. First point the path of hunspell to your equivalent folder:

C:\Program Files (x86)\LyX 2.1\Resources\dicts

Then, it is an incorrect or corrupted en_US.aff/dic files. I downloaded another version from hunspell project:


and overwrite ir in the dicts folder, that worked for me.
