Need a workable SherloXplorer plugin



  • Hi all,

    I am an often user of notepad++ and the SherloXplorer is one of my daily use plugin.
    And recently I re-install all my Windows system and found out the newest notepadd++ cannot install the SherloXplorer plugin…: (

    The error msg shows “Object reference not set to an instance of an object”.
    Does anyone can help me to solve this problem? It really bothers me.

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks

  • Hi cmeriaux,

    When the error occurs, it pop up a “Microsoft .NET Framework” window shows “Object reference not set to an instance of an object”.

    And its detailed info are:

    ************** JIT Debugging **************
    To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
    application or computer (machine.config) must have the
    jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
    The application must also be compiled with debugging
    enabled.

    For example:

    <configuration>
    <system.windows.forms jitDebugging=“true” />
    </configuration>

    When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
    will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
    rather than be handled by this dialog box.

    Any idea?

  • Try to disable other plugins to see if they have an interaction with your problem
    You can also try with a protable NPP https://notepad-plus-plus.org/repository/7.x/7.3.3/npp.7.3.3.bin.zip
    I haven’t other idea. You can try to contact the author of the plugin.
    good luck



  • @Hong-Xuan-Ji ,
    “I get uninitialized object exception when my default font size is 125%, but no error when the font size is the default. Since my eyes are on the high side of 40, I’d really prefer having the larger font.”

    Please, check it.

    I found it here - https://sourceforge.net/p/notepad-plus/discussion/482781/thread/41d99e38/



  • Seems there is a version 0.5 available here:

    https://bitbucket.org/uph0/sherloxplorer/downloads/

    which is not available via the PluginManager. You might give it a try.



  • @young-developer
    Thanks for your replies, but my font size is normal.

    @chcg
    I had tried the version 0.5. but the same problem poped up.
