Notepad ++ not working with python

  • I am having problems with notepad ++. I am trying to save files so I can run them on the command promt window. In the past when I create a file (.py) Notepad++ will immediately allow me to write codes for python. Now it doesn’t and the disc logo beside the file name is red and not blue. I uninstalled and installed Notepad++but doesn’t still not working. can someone please help me?

  • me too. I try run:

    D:\Program Files (x86)\Python\python.exe "$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)"
    d:\Program Files (x86)\Python\Lib\idlelib\ -i "$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)"
    D:\Program Files (x86)\Python\python.exe -r "$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)"

    Nothing happen, evan if I make a shortcut key.

    So, I make a shortcut on tcm “d:\Program Files (x86)\Python\Lib\idlelib\” to open directly the shell.

  • I guess we have two different issues here,

    if you want to use the normal python installation (not the python script plugin) you
    need to make sure to use the command shell together with the python interpreter.
    In addition encase the path with double quotes to prevent that command shell
    tries to run D:\Program and everything else is treated as a parameter to that prog.

    So you have to call

    cmd /K "D:\Program Files (x86)\Python\python.exe" "$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)"

    if the icon is red it means that there are changes and you should save it.
    Beside this obvious one explain what your problem is exactly.
    Add screenshots if needed and provide examples or step by step descriptions.
