Notepad++ v7.4 released
I have a small problem with the new release v7.4 in Windows 10. I use it in a closed environment without internet connection.
The startup in 7.4 takes about 10 seconds. I tried it with complete new install without plugins, the portable versions and x86 + x64. The startup time is always about 10 seconds…
If I use the v7.3.3. it directly pops up without a second delay.
Can someone confirm this behaviour? Is there a solution or a direction where to start?
Please check the fixed binary (64x version) :
and let me know if this issue has been fixed.
Yes ! Yippey!
If I use the fixed ZIP it works like i used to know it. Perfect!
Are you going to release a v7.4.1?

A little issue: if you were opened a big file in one of the tabs and then hover the mouse under this tab it reads this file too long and Notepad++ hungs. Mayby it is better to restrict size of file to preview or do not read whole the file (just few lines). I’ve fixed this problem bu unchecking “Peek on tab” checkbox in the settings.

Are you going to be revising the version number? I downloaded the latest version ~2hours ago and want to ensure it contains the latest fix.

I can see why a big file would be a problem for this new “preview” feature. Also, the preview itself is REALLY SMALL, so small that one has to question its usefulness!
A new official release 7.4.1 will come out in about 8 hours.
@donho Many thanks!
Thank you for the fast response!

Yes, it works now. Thanks!
Any news on when 7.4.1 will be released? I downloaded the latest binary on the off chance that it was released without any revision to the version number, however, the hash is exactly the same as the previous. Thanks!

This version shows messagebox with text “The file cannot be save and it may be protected…” when I try to save a new created file although native Windows notepad does it without problems. Then when I switch to another program and switch back to the motepad++ a see a messagebox with “This file has been modified by another program…” but it has not
The Document Peeker for large files performance issue has been fixed in this binary (x64) :
@Boris-Uskov Couloud you check it and confirm me if the fix works for you?
@Daniel-McGurk Due to the new bug discovered (Peeker performance issue), the new release is not done last night.
I’ll try it tonight, otherwise it’ll be available in this weekend for sure.
