Launch in Administrator mode not reopen edited file but original file
In Windows with UAC environment, when try to save an edited file in a protected folder, Notepad ask if I want to start it in Administrator mode, and respond to ‘Yes’.
That’s OK. But the problem is.
While in some PC notepad restart in admin mode and automatically reopen the file that I had already edited, so I can, simply, click again on save and the file is saved.
In other PC, notepad restart a new session in admin mode, but automatically reopen the original file (that was saved on disk), before I edited it, so I lost the modify that I do, and need to remodify again the file (really it’s possible to copy all contents in first notepad session and paste and replace all contents in notepad admin session).
This, naturally, is very nuisance.
I searched for options difference between one installation and another, without found it.
How can I solve the problem ?
Is there an option or setting that permit this ?
Thanks in advance.
which notepad++ version do you use, in particular 32bit or 64bit?
Currently I’m thinking that, maybe, the filesystem redirector did come into place.
Could this be?
Thanks for response.
The version is the last available (7.5.6) 64 bit, but the problem exist with other previous version too, in 32bit as 64 bit, same problem.
"Currently I’m thinking that, maybe, the filesystem redirector did come into place" sorry, I’m afraid I do not understand what you mean.
What is the complete pathname to the file you are having this trouble with?
The problem isn’t on specific file, it’s on all files in all directories (where is requested administrator right to modify)
Maybe you want to have a look on plugin https://sourceforge.net/projects/nppsaveasadmin/, also available for 64bit, see PluginManager.
could it be that the PC’s which do act like you want do have
Settings->Preferences->Backup->Enable session snapshot and periodic backup
activated while those which don’t work as expected don’t have that setting set?
I haven’t tested but this could explain the behavior.
If this isn’t the case, what exactly is different in terms of permissions on folder/files
or in other words, what do I need to do to see the same behavior as you do?
