I installed a fresh copy of AbiWord 2.6 (english only version) onto my desktop. I opened it and the menu is english cause thats the only language it has. But if I write something, as soon as I hit "Enter", a window pops up and says: "Could nor load the dictionary for the German (Switzerland) [de-CH] language." I use Win XP in german (Switzerland).
The same happens if I install the full version. Then the menu is in german but the popup appears anyhow.
I don't know if thats a bug in AbiWord itself but I guess its something with the way the Portable version handles the language.
If I have the swiss dictionary installed but I want to set the language of a word, Abiword crashes and the Windows-"...needs to close"-message pops up and it closes. I guess this one is a problem within Abiword.
