Notepad++ crashes at exit
My notepad++ always crashes at exit with the message:
“Notepad++ : a free (GNU) source code editor has stopped working”
I also tried the latest version, but still it crashes at exit.
ok, thanks, let’s go then:
- I’m using file change detection monitoring but these files aren’t changed
- the files are different each time, not the same each time,
- there’s an antivirus only, no firewall
maybe it’s a plugin
here is my debug info:
Notepad++ v7.5.6 (32-bit)
Build time : Mar 19 2018 - 00:26:59
Path : D:\Utilities\PortableApps\Notepad++\notepad++.exe
Admin mode : ON
Local Conf mode : ON
OS : Windows 8.1 (64-bit)
Plugins : AutoSave.dll BracketsCheck.dll combine.dll ComparePlugin.dll DSpellCheck.dll LocationNavigate.dll nppcrypt.dll NppTextFX.dll PluginManager.dll
the operating system should be windows 7, because it happens at work mostly
here’s a screen of the crash: https://imgur.com/jnSCbxB
Hmm, I see it’s Admin mode; you might want to try running without elevated privileges (I mentioned earlier where in the NPP shortcut that’s found).
Also, I would highly recommend trying to run without plugins for a while, and see if it still happens. (You could add
-noPluginto the Target field of the shortcut)
Also, I see “PortableApps” in the path to your executable. Did you get your copy from portableapps.com, or did you download the zip package from https://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/ ? I would recommend using the official zipfile.
I’m not sure it’s launched in admin mode when it crashes, my guess is it doesn’t, the shortcut in desktop is set to launch in admin mode but mostly I open a txt file by double-clicking it (instead of launching npp+ and selection open file)
also, I get the zip file from official npp+ site each time,
I don’t think it’s available from portableapps.com
where has @Antoon Kagenaar gone by the way? :O
I have the same problem, but I think that I definitively solved this issue today. It’s for me a problem with the Zoom Disabler 1.2 plugin. When I remove this plugin, there is no crash on exit anymore. I use Notepad++ 32 bits on Windows 10 64 bits.
Same for me, deleting Zoom Disabler is the solution, thanks to @Jean-michel
The LocationNavigate plugin is also well known to cause Notepad++ to crash at exit.
Created https://github.com/StanDog/npp-zoomdisabler/issues/3 for the issue with zoom disabler.
For LocationNavigate from (https://sourceforge.net/p/locationnav/tickets/) Maybe there could be created an issue.
I have some trouble reproducing this problem. On Windows 7 and 10 I have no problem with the 64-bit version. Could someone, who is affected, please try to remove all plugins except the Zoom Disabler plugin and test, if this problem still appears? Just to be sure, that Zoom Disabler is really the troublemaker and not a combination with an other plugin.
