Not able to install XML plugin ()
I checked XML plugin but after restart notepad++ i dont see that plugins
we need more information in order to be able to help you installing the XML Tools plugin:
please go to the notepad++ menu
? > debug info... > copy debug info into clipboardand paste it here
how did you try to install xml tools ? did you use “plugin manager” or did you use the official “plugins admin”, or did you make a manual install ?
(note: “plugins admin” is only available on version 7.6 and higher)
please answer both points completely and describe your way of installing xml tools as detailed as you can.
debug info :
Notepad++ v7.6.3 (64-bit)
Build time : Jan 27 2019 - 17:16:47
Path : C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe
Admin mode : ON
Local Conf mode : OFF
OS : Windows 7 (64-bit)
Plugins : DSpellCheck.dll mimeTools.dll NppConverter.dll
I used plugin admin , after selection XML tool to install then popup window ask for restart notepad. But after restart i don’t see that plugin in notepad
thank you for your detailed information.
i have just recreated your setup by installing a fresh notepad++ 7.6.3 x64, started it in admin mode, as well as a standard user, and i can install the xml tools plugin without any problems in both modes.
are you able to install any plugins at all, using plugins admin, for example the compare plugin ?
if not, there’s a possibility that you are behind a corporate proxy, which you could set at
? > set updater proxy...if you know your proxy’s ip and port.
if you are behind a corporate firewall, which does not allow downloads from any programs except your internet browser, you would need the help of your local admin, or perform a manual download and install.
(we would guide you through that, if this is the case)
to check if you are behind a corporate proxy:
open a cmd window.
ping notepad-plus-plus.organd press enter.
if you don’t get an answer from
220.127.116.11you are behind a corporate proxy.
I think my computer is behind corporate firewall. Can you please send me manual download guide .
download psiphon and simply run in OS : Windows 7 (64-bit) while browser open automatically then begin.
- close all instances of Notepad++
- download the latest XML Tools – make sure to pick x64 (64-bit) version (witout DEBUG) to match your Notepad++
- in the plugins directory of your notepad++ install (
c:\program files\notepad++\plugins), create an XMLTools folder
- place the contents of the downloaded zipfile in the XmlTools folder, so that there exists
- open Notepad++
- Plugins > XML Tools should exist
That in no way helped the original poster to accomplish the goal of installing XML Tools. If you have a valid reason for recommending that tool over the XML Tools plugin [*], then you may make your case; but just dropping in with a “download this unknown tool” message doesn’t help the discussion.
edit: after hitting SUBMIT, I realized that maybe the “psiphon” tool was something that can help overcome a corporate firewall; if so, you should really explain that. Also, you should point out that trying to bypass corporate security is grounds for firing at many corporations, so caveat emptor.
i’dont know about my network but without psiphon i could not install 3p plugin auto update sometimes.
I’m glad that psiphon helped you with auto-update. I don’t know if using such an app would be allowed in @tanu-uppal’s circumstances; and if it’s trying to circumvent corporate firewalls, I wouldn’t advise @tanu-uppal take that approach. Thank you for your clarification.
