notpad++ 7.5.6 install and plugins
I love Notepad++ (Npp), and it has worked great for a while. Here is what I like and use in Npp;
Default app for .txt, .log, .ini.
Compare 1.5.6 http://www.technicaloverload.com/compare-two-files-using-notepad/
ColumnSort NppColumnSort-188.8.131.52 http://william.famille-blum.org/blog/index.php?entry=entry110123-113226
TextFX for sort remove duplicates, and I want to add ans use the the xml re indent option.
I installed Npp version 7.5.6 and I had to reinstall the plugin manager and then installed the plugins and
column sort won’t load says it is not compatible.
Then when I went to windows explore and found a .txt file, I couldn’t right click on it make it open in Npp, and windows explorer wouldn’t let me open by browsing to “C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe” file and making the default application.
What version of Npp do I need to download and install to make all of these plugins to work, set Npp as the default app for file types?
Thanks in advance for the help.
Which version of N++ did you install. Sounds like it is the 64bit version. You could check that under ?->Debug Info…
NppColumnSort is not available for 64bit, neither TextFx.
So probably the 32bit version is the right one for you, see https://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/v7.5.6.html.
Yes I have 64, it doesn’t need to match my Win OS version?
I will try to uninstall current and reinstall the 32bit
Yes, it is possible to run the 32 bit version also on a win 64 OS version.
