New install - No new plugins available
I just installed Notepad++ for the first time. v7.4.2 x86 on Windows 7 x64. I picked x86 because the download page says “Note that the most of plugins (including Plugin Manager) are not yet available in x64”. I’ve seen screenshots that show a lot of plugins listed under the Plugin Manager Available tab, but all mine shows is “No new plugins available”.
in order to get the list of plugins, the plugin manager connects to a server and downloads
the list of files. So make sure you do have a network connection and give it a try multiple times
as it might be possible that the server itself isn’t reachable or busy at the moment.
I do not see a refresh button, but I loaded it multiple times with no change. Networking is working fine for everything else.
AppData\Roaming\Notepad++\plugins\config\PluginManagerPlugins.zip was 0 bytes. I overwrote it with PluginManagerPlugins.* from another installation and restarted. It then recommended the PluginManager upgrade and now appears to be working correctly.
