Updates don`t work in 7.6.1 PlugIn-Admin
I updated yesterday from 7.6 to 7.6.1 and moved my PlugIns like written on the site "Move all %LOCALAPPDATA%\Notepad++\plugins\ (except “Config” folder) to %PROGRAMDATA%\Notepad++\plugins."
I can use all PlugIns and PlugIn-Admin find them, too. PlugIn-Admin also show some Updates for my PlugIns.
If I try to update the PlugIns, Npp show the normal MessageBox, Close and ReOpen after some time. If I open PlugIn-Admin again there are still the same UIpdates and the installed PlugIns show still the old versions.
Is there any known bug in “new” PlugIn-Admin?
Win 7 64bit
Npp 7.6.1 64bit
DspellCheck and Mimetool updates work for me. Have you tried to update one of these?
Could you provide N++ debug infos, see https://notepad-plus-plus.org/community/topic/15739/faq-desk-request-for-help-without-sufficient-information-to-help-you
I ran into issues too after upgrading to 7.6.1, so I uninstalled it and removed the folders in several places (program files/programdata/appdata local) and reinstalled the 64-bit version from scratch, but still the same issue. When I tried to install updates or new plugins a restart was required, but it immediately restarted np++ without any error messages and nothing was changed, no updates and no new plugins were installed.
After trying back and forth several times to different locations and also tried the second checkbox in the last dialog of the installer to no avail I thought I should try to run outside of our corporate network (which is behind a proxy) and then it worked as it should with a default install. After adding/updating plugins it took longer to restart and after the restart the plugins were there :-)
However my plugins now seem to recide in c:\ProgramData aka %PROGRAMDATA%, not in %LOCALAPPDATA% (or as previously in the program files folder), but at least things work.
A bit strange since it seems to be able to use the proxy to download the list of plugins and can check what plugins needs to be updated, but can’t do the update itself.
I hope that this proxy issues will be fixed in the next version because at work we’re using some PulseSecure app to automatically connect to the corporate network through VPN when logging in from outside and while I still can kill the service most people at our company doesn’t have enough permissions to kill that process and thus have no way to connect to the internet without going through the company proxy.
@Tony Olsson :
I am behind a proxy, too. So I think that is the reason for my problems.
I hope it will be fixed in next version.
I cannot install or update any plufins.
