Notepad++ just hanging on start - Windows 10
This just started today. The machine was logged off when I arrived to work this AM, implying that our friends in Redmond “fixed” something overnight.
I haven’t seen that anybody else has reported this issue. I rebooted Windows. No luck. I uninstalled and reinstalled NP++ (npp.7.4.2.Installer.x64) with no apparent issues, but it just hangs when I start it up.
Anybody have any suggestions? I’m a software developer. I can’t use Notepad. I’ve used NP++ since it came out umpteen years ago.
Thanks in advance,
Well, I guess I can call “never mind”. It does start, but it takes > 30 seconds to load? That is an order of magnitude slower than say, yesterday.
Is anybody else experiencing this? I’m on a Dell laptop with four i7 cores running at 2.7GHz, 16GB of DRAM, and 1TB of storage, so nothing should be “slow” on this machine.
could it be that npp, on startup, has to load a file which is on a server?
Than the 30 seconds could indicate an network timeout.
