Problem using Spell-Check + Aspell
I installed the Spell-Check add-in in Notepad++ v7.3.3 under Windows 7, with ASpell and the English dictionary. I can start Spell-Check, but the first time I click the Learn button I get an error box that says, “The file “C:/…/Aspell/en.pws” cannot be opened for writing.”
True that; there is no such file. Where can I find it?
It sounds like you are trying to get the dictionary to “learn” new words. This would entail it opening and writing to a file. If this is the first time you’ve tried this (as you say) the error probably means it’s not even able to create the file, hence why you cannot find the file.
So look for the “Aspell” folder, that’s part of the error message you get, hopefully some other files already exist there. Using an external program (Windows Explorer maybe) attempt to write a text file in that folder, you will probably get a similar error message, “unable to create file”. If that happens it will prove it’s not a Notepad++ issue, rather a Operating System permissions problem which will need fixing/adjusting.
