Bug Opening TXT File on a Mapped Drive?



  • Hello… Just installed 6.9.2.

    I have my DropBox folder (c:\users(me)\DropBox mapped to my Z drive. After this update, when I double click on z:\MyFile.txt, it doesn’t open (NP++ is my default for txt files, NotePad works fine when I Open With…).

    When I go to NP++ -> File->Open, the Z drive does not appear in the file dialog, but it does in Explorer. When I double click on c:\users(me)\DropBox\MyFile.txt, all is well.

    I’ve used NP++ and have had my DropBox mapped to my Z drive for quite some time and have never seen this until immediately after the 6.9.2 update (I was opening this file when I was prompted for the update, which I have opened recently, but skipped the update).

    Might it have something to do with this fix from the Release Notes?
    4. Fix open in explorer problem while path contain unusual characters.

    I’m an Admin on my box and I run NP++ in Admin mode, if that provides any clues.

    Obviously, not a huge deal. Just letting you know. Thanx for an amazing product!

  • Sorry… when I said Mapped Drive, I should have said this is done with the SUBST command and not a network mapping. Thanx.
