Did you type
"M-x ispell-change-dictionary RET de_DE_frami RET" to change to this

Yes, that is exactly what I did.

Also, where did you get the de_DE_frami dictionary?

I got it from here:

And how exactly is hunspell invoked for this dictionary after you invoke
ispell-change-dictionary as above (look in Process Explorer or some
After "M-x list-processes RET" I get this:

Process: ispell
Status:  run
Buffer:  --
TTY:     --
Command: C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\...\hunspell.exe -a  -d de_DE_frami -r 
-i utf-8

The de_DE_frami.aff file clearly says that its encoding is ISO 8859-1:

   SET ISO8859-1

So you need to arrange for Emacs to use latin-1 with this dictionary,
not utf-8.

Thanks a lot! Now it works.
I didn't know that such information is found in the affix file. It's great to have people like you out there. :-)
