Problem with ? -> "Set Updater proxy..."
On work, I have to set a proxy and I wanted to also set in n Notepad++ for program updates.
(I don’t have the problem with the plugin manager…)
- in “?” menu,
- then “Set Updater proxy…”
- if I set it, “Ok”,
- then reopen it,
- it is back to “0.0.0.0”
I had the problem with previous version and also the new one 7.3
don’t have the issue here (using also latest 7.3).
Could you provide ?-debug->info, please.
value is saved in C:\Program Files\Notepad++\updater\gupOptions.xml
could it be that you have write permission issues?
Hi, I have noticed this same issue. I do not have a gupOptions.xml. There is no such file in that folder. There is a gup.xml but this does not have any proxy reference. Thanks. Andrew
Notepad++ v7.3 (32-bit)
Build time : Jan 1 2017 - 20:04:42
Path : C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe
Admin mode : OFF
Local Conf mode : OFF
OS : Windows 10
Plugins : mimeTools.dll NppConverter.dll NppExport.dll PluginManager.dll
can it be that you do not have write permissions to that folder?
As the zip doesn’t contain the file itself, I assume that it gets created when needed.
Content of the file looks like
<GUPOptions> <Proxy> <server>127.0.0.1</server> <port>8080</port> </Proxy> </GUPOptions>
maybe create it manually?
I’m a local admin but think the issue may be because of UAC. I created it manually and got a UAC prompt to save it. It can now check for changes. Thanks.
Problem is now there is about 10 of us who have it installed so need to push this xml file out to them as well.
Thanks again for the assistance, Andrew
Permission issue. Just run C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe as administrator (right click, run as admin.) and it will keep the proxy settings.
