    Due to a critical regression, Notepad++ 6.8.9 release has been removed from the website:

  • Hello Don,

    I’ve, still, been able to download the N++ 6.8.9 version, from that link :

    I, then, installed the portable version, by downloading the npp.6.8.9.bin.7z archive

    Without modifying any N++ parameter, I tried to follow the steps which produce the crash issue.

    But, contrary to what you said, Don, I did NOT notice any issue, on my Win XP SP3 configuration, luckily !

    Refer to the ? - Debug info list, below :

    Local Conf mode : ON

    Remainder : The different steps, that I used for testing, are :

    • Open a new tab, in Notepad 6.8.9

    • Type some random characters

    • Save this file as Test.txt

    • Switch off, from N+, to Microsoft Notepad

    • Open the Test.txt file

    • Add some random characters

    • Save, with Microsoft Notepad, the changed file, Test.txt

    • Switch back to Notepad++ 6.8.9,

    • The Reload dialog appears : This file has been modified from another program. Do you want to reload it?

    • Accept it, by clicking on the Yes button

    => No crash happened ! Procedure repeated several times => All is OK, on my Win XP SP3 configuration !

    Best Regards,

    Special thanks, for points #3, #4 and #5, of the change.log !
