Anyone know the latest version that runs on Windows 98?
I have to run a very old compiler in a Windows 98 virtual box. It has notepad++ 5.0 installed. Does anyone know what the newest version is that will run in my environment?
from compiler point of view I assume this one.
As 7.2.2 dropped VS2005
I did some searching. According to https://notepad-plus-plus.org/news/notepad-5.9.1-release-is-available.html, “As a result Notepad++ future releases won’t be supported under Windows 98/ME environments, since VS2010 cannot be used to target Win9X.” I believe that means that 5.9.1 should work Win98.
If you’d rather use a more modern Notepad++, I might recommend installing the most recent NPP on your host machine, and use the NppFTP plugin (also available thru plugin manager) to “remotely” edit the files on your virtual box.
