access violation popup message

  • Hello ~~
    I’m notepad++ 7.5.3 User.

    When I close the tab for close notepad++ ,

    I meet the "access violation " popup message.

    Is This a Bug?


    access violation doesn’t sound healthy but hard to tell if npp or maybe a plugin is responsible.
    On my npp 7.5.3 I do not get the access violation popup message but it might be related
    to your setup and/or configuration.

    Does this happen always?
    If so, can you explain in detail what you are doing?
    Can you post the debug-info?


  • Hi, I also faced the same issue. It randomly show “Access Violation” when I close the Notepad++.
    I’m using NPP on Windows 10 with Fall Creator Update (1709).
    The error occur on both Admin and Non-Admin privilege.

    below is the debugging information

    do you see any coincidence like it happens when having a lot of files open,
    or when editing xml or … ?

    And when you see the access violation, does it offer to create a dump
    or shows additional info?


  • I got the same problem with version 7.5.2, and version 7.5.3. I think it is due to setup/config file. If you download the 7 zip file, unzip and open the exe file, you don’t have the pop up error.

    Thx, oh ok, I’m always using the zipped packages, that could explain why I don’t see it.
    I will give it a try to install it, albeit I think running under wine could lead to different results. Let’s see.


  • @Atkins-Nguyen There is a problem with the packaged dspellplugin version 1.3.2 (newly readded with n++ 7.5.2) , which might cause the issue. Could you update to and check if the issue is fixed

  • I have the access violation message when I open/close a file. Also when I open and close the app (even with no files loaded). I upgraded DSpellCheck to 1.3.3 and have the same problem.

  • @Terry-Wysocki,

    Please provide more details.

    Is it any file, or just particular ones; if just particular files, what’s different about those files (location, permissions, etc); does it always happen with the particular files, or just sometimes? What version of Notepad++ are you using (? > Debug Info > Copy debug information to clipboard, paste it in your response)?

  • I had this error with Notepad++ 7.5.7 when using TextFX to sort lines by a given column
