    How to remove HunSpellChecker

    Unsure how to totally remove HunSpellchecker now that we're on 7.2.4 and the built-in browser spellcheckers work okay.

    The Trace Logs still show these two lines about every couple minutes:

    2015-07-07 02:00:36,732 [7] INFO Usc.Plugins.HunSpellChecker.HunSpellChecker - Culture 'en-US' loaded for spellcheck plugin. 2015-07-07 02:00:36,732 [7] INFO Usc.Plugins.HunSpellChecker.HunSpellChecker - LoadCurrent - Loaded default dictionary culture: en-US

    I can't remove the package from the UI because I get a permissions error trying to remove \bin\hunspellx64.dll, even though the application pool user has full control permissions on that file. Also when I've manually deleted that file before, it caused other strange errors.

    So just trying to resolve the right steps to clean this piece out, even though when we were using it, loved it.

    Hi Eric, Glad you liked the plugin before it became 'obselete.' The browser built in spell checkers are great now :)

    I haven't worked with Umbraco for 18 months or so now but I suspect the \hunspellx64.dll DLL is locked by the web application pool.

    You would need to stop the app pool to release any 'hold' on this dll and then manually remove it and all HunSpell related DLL's

    Removing the web.config entries you made when installing it as well as the plugins\HunSpellChecker should do the trick.

    Cheers, Adrian
