ShellExecute Failed (2):



  • Hello Everyone,

    5-7 years ago I reported a bug, it still has not been fixed. If you set Notepad++ to run as Administrator, then you right click on a file and pick Edit with Notepad++ you receive an error…

    ShellExecute Failed (2): Is this command correct? “C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\Notepad++.exe” “C:\Users\MyLogin\Desktop\Filename.txt”.

    To get around the problem I’ve had to create my own “Right Click” context menu. There is a silver lining though. With my command, you can right click on a folder and when you pick "Edit with Notepad++ it opens every file in that folder.
