I wasn’t sure if Notepad++ was going to install properly on my new laptop running Windows 7 64-Bit. After the initial installation of Notepad++ I was receiving an error that I assumed must be related to the fact that this was a 64-Bit OS and not a 32-Bit OS. The issue ended up being a silly mistake on my end and was very easy to resolve. Below I explain the error along with how to resolve the error. This should resolve the problem on any version of Windows regardless of if the OS is 64-Bit or 32-Bit.
Error: GNU Aspell and/or dictionaries are missing. Download installation files here: http://aspell.net/win32 . If Aspell is already installed, do correction of relative path to aspell-15.dll and restart

If I had initially read the error correctly then I would have realized I forgot to install any dictionary files. The path to Aspell was fine but when it attempted to open any dictionary files this error appeared. To resolve the issue with Aspell visit the Aspell site and download your languages dictionary file. In my case this was the English dictionary which is currently titled aspell-en-0.50-2-3.exe. Once installed you should restart Notepad++ and it should work without issue on any version of Windows including XP, Vista, and Windows 7 and no matter if the operating system is 32-Bit or 64-Bit.
