Notepad++ 7.1: network drives not visible
Using Notepad++ 6.9.2 without an issue on Win 10
I have network drives mounted (u:) and can open files and save with no issue.
Upgraded to 7.1 (32bit) and can no longer open files on u:
The File - Open does not show the network drives.
Ive tried a few things.
- Run as adminstrator when installing npp.7.1.Installer.exe
- Run as adminstrtor when opening notepad++.exe
- try changing the compatibility to Win 7
With some of these changes i the u: became visible and i could open a file.
but it would not let me save the file.
Ive since reinstalled 6.9.2 and all is good again.
Note to those with the same issue:
Network mapped drives not visible, can’t open files on mapped drive. Opening files on network share works ok.
After a reboot, everything works ok and mapped drives now show up. Not sure if its Npp or Win10.
Basically add a new DWORD to your registry called HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Policies/System/EnableLinkedConnection & give it a value of 1. Reboot & all should be good.
