Check list of installed dictionaries.

Links to precompiled binaries are dead at time of writing.

I got RPMs from openSUSE, but hunspell.exe aborted after not finding a dll file. After that dll was added, another dll was not found. I gave up after several iterations. This was with mingw32-hunspell-1.3.2-1.98.noarch.rpm and later mingw32-hunspell-1.3.2-1.99.noarch.rpm (and associated lang and tools RPMs). Windows users be aware of this.

Emacs-23 is not as great as Emacs-24. You will have these problems and you can workaround it this way.
