Copy auto-completion xml-files onto PC of a client/customer

  • Hello everyone,

    I generated an xml file for auto-completion and put it into the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\APIs, which works nicely on my computer. Now I would like to distribute this file automatically to our clients; however, this does not work, because that folder needs administrator rights. We already distribute other xml files, for highlighting text and generating Run commands, by copying them into the folder C:\Users{userName}\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++ on the PCs of our clients, which works nicely. My question: Is there a way to do this also with the xml file for auto-completion?

    I’m not 100% sure but I don’t think so. It’s been a while since I did automated installation for npp.
    If the newer versions are still behaving the same then you might need to create links (hard-/soft-/junctions …) to achieve what you are looking for.
