Notepad++ plugin template (& plugin demo) x64 build available
[edited on the 18th September 2016]
As you might have noticed, Notepad++ x64 build is available.
In order to make your 64-bit plugins stable with Notepad++ x64, I recommand you to update the files you’e using for your plugin (ex. Notepad_plus_msgs.h, menuCmdID.h, StaticDialog.h, StaticDialog.cpp… etc). You can check them in updated pluginTemplate repository:
All Notepad++ plugins developped by me available for x64 build here:
I encourage plugin authors to make your x64 build availabe, so Notepad++ x64 users will benefit from your plugins.
@dail May I please ask which IDE + version and what programming language you are using?
Visual Studio Community 2013 C++
Wow, you are fast! Thank you for the info. I’m on Delphi (10.1 Berlin). I will check this and will write a reply.
I’ve developed my plugin with C# and not C++.
What should I do?
Just a small note to Delphi developers about my previous problem: Problem fixed. It was due to an outdated plugin template, or more precisely: “Longword” was used instead of “NativeUInt” and “Longint” instead of “NativeInt”. The both last ones are platform dependent, while the first two are platform dependent too but only 8 bytes long on the 64-Bit-iOS platform.
I did some x64 porting for npp plugin manager under https://github.com/chcg/nppPluginManager/tree/app_veyor build under https://ci.appveyor.com/project/chcg/npppluginmanager/build/1.0.19, not yet splitted and consolidated as pull requests. Anyhow the plugin manger needs an extension (similar to the outdated ansi/unicode detection in the xml list of all plugins) to provide plugins as x64 version if running under x64 version of notepad++.
See https://notepad-plus-plus.org/community/topic/12633/npppluginnet-64-bit/4 for c# plugin based on https://github.com/kbilsted/NotepadPlusPlusPluginPack.Net and previous NppPluginNet.
whats a plug in?
@donho - If you have time, it would be nice to add a dedicated x64 version page to the NPP website, including a link or pointer to available help documentation and an updated list of compatible plugins. Current status of the x64 Plugin Manager would also be helpful. It’s not clear if those on the github link are all 64-bit or not. Maybe add a page heading to that effect? Many thanks for all your work!
@gabriela-mendoza plugin is something which will help you in working with notepad++ more easily and reliably.
Can the list of available plug-ins include a column to show if they are 32 or 64 bit. Would help us users check which can be installed manually. At the moment it is a suck it a see.
32-bit Notepad++ can only have 32-bit plugins so PluginManager only shows 32-bit plugins.
64-bit Notepad++ can only have 64-bit plugins so PluginManager only shows 64-bit plugins.
No need for an “address model” column in the PluginManager.
For X64 Debug, just need to disable C++ optimizations to build without error (I’m on VS2017)
