Bug Description

Spellchecking does not work in 64 bit Windows,
perhaps we could find an alternative that does?

More than 90 % of Windows PC's used today are 64
bit so the spellchecker is pretty much broken.

2.4.4 | 64 bit Win 10

Since all of our builds are currently 32-bit, actually it is worling for 100% of our users...
There might be issues with languages that isn't bundled though...

I haven't ever managed to make it work in 64 bit Windows.

If I recall correctly, the issue was that the thing or
a related component used with spellchecking is not
available/compatible with 64 bit.

Can anyone confirm this works in 64 bit Windows?

Using a 32-bit build on a 64-bit windows it works for me.

I just noticed this works, not sure of how I missed it earlier.
Sorry for the trouble.

Seems to be bound to English (OS language) thou.
Perhaps a new wishlist for multilang spellcheck would be appropriate.
