Notepad++ 7.6.1 & Plugins Admin enhancement

13 Dec 2018 02:23:00

Plugins Admin, which has been added in 7.6 release, was far from being perfect. In version 7.6.1, Plugins Admin is enhanced on several aspects. However, the enhancement could bring some plugins issues for people who update their Notepad++, due to the new location for plugins. Sorry for the inconvenient. 

In order to remedy this problem, after the update, if you update from 7.6 :
Move all %LOCALAPPDATA%\Notepad++\plugins\ (except "Config" folder) to %PROGRAMDATA%\Notepad++\plugins\.

Otherwise, you update from v7.5.9 or version older than v7.5.9:
Find the name of plugin you want to migrate in %PROGRAMFILES(x86)%\Notepad++\plugins\myAwesomePlugin.dll (or %PROGRAMFILES%\Notepad++\plugins\myAwesomePlugin.dll, according the achetecture of your Notepad++).
go to %PROGRAMDATA%\Notepad++\plugins\ to create myAwesomePlugin folder.
move the plungin myAwesomePlugin.dll from %PROGRAMFILES(x86)%\Notepad++\plugins\ to %PROGRAMDATA%\Notepad++\plugins\myAwesomePlugin\.

Any question or request goes here:
