Tortoise SVN missing from Plugin Manager
A few version updates ago, Tortoise SVN disappeared from my plugins menu and from the plugin manager.
It removed my right click entries of commit and other commands.
After a fair amount of searching, I’ve failed to work out why and how to get it back.
Did anyone else experience this and have a solution?

I am assuming you upgraded from 7.5.9 or earlier to something that was 7.6.3 or later when the problem started happening. The directory structure for plugins changed in v7.6.3.
<install_directory>\plugins, you probably have a DLL called
TortoiseSVN.dllor something similar. Create a subdirectory with the same name (without
.dll, but make sure you include any spaces in the name: so in my example,
<install_directory>\plugins\TortoiseSVN), and then move the DLL into that folder. Exit all instances of Notepad++ and reload.
BTW: I don’t see that plugin in either the 64-bit or 32-bit Plugins Admin. Where did you get your copy?
The old Plugin Manager links it here. Are you using SVN or would a N++ git plugin be more useful?
Tortoise SVN has been added to the new plugin manager interface the 14 june. It will be available on the next release of “Npp Plugin List” and “Notepad++”
The old Plugin Manager links it here.
Thanks. It appears to be 32-bit only, and I’m usually in 64-bit…
Are you using SVN
Yes. SVN is what we use at work, so it’s what I’m used to.
When I hobby at GitHub, I use their svn-to-github interface. I’ve actually had people comment on my “strange” commit messages on GitHub, because
svn commit -m "is much easier to do with a single-line commit message", which often gets longer than the title/“first line” on GitHub commits, so GitHub cuts it mid-sentence (or maybe even mid-word) and puts the rest in the body of the text rather than all together in the title.
I have my NppExec scripts for svn-add, svn-commit(file) and svn-commit(directory), which is usually sufficient for me. But if there were a 64-bit SVN-plugin, I’d at least give it a try, to see if it gave me a better user-experience than the NppExec scripts.
@PeterJones Many thanks – creating sub directory and moving .dll is the solution – all working now. :+)
Tortoise SVN plugin not available any longer via plugin manager but (as per Michael Vincent’s post ) available at http://www.incrediblejunior.com/npp_plugins/
