Bug Opening TXT File on a Mapped Drive?
Hello… Just installed 6.9.2.
I have my DropBox folder (c:\users(me)\DropBox mapped to my Z drive. After this update, when I double click on z:\MyFile.txt, it doesn’t open (NP++ is my default for txt files, NotePad works fine when I Open With…).
When I go to NP++ -> File->Open, the Z drive does not appear in the file dialog, but it does in Explorer. When I double click on c:\users(me)\DropBox\MyFile.txt, all is well.
I’ve used NP++ and have had my DropBox mapped to my Z drive for quite some time and have never seen this until immediately after the 6.9.2 update (I was opening this file when I was prompted for the update, which I have opened recently, but skipped the update).
Might it have something to do with this fix from the Release Notes?
- Fix open in explorer problem while path contain unusual characters.
I’m an Admin on my box and I run NP++ in Admin mode, if that provides any clues.
Obviously, not a huge deal. Just letting you know. Thanx for an amazing product!

Sorry… when I said Mapped Drive, I should have said this is done with the SUBST command and not a network mapping. Thanx.
