Notepad++ 7.6 and SQLinForm plugin



  • Just tried updating to Notepad++7.6 and cannot get the SQLinForm Plugin to load correctly. Made sure I had the latest versions of each and followed the instructions about putting the plugin DLL in the Local Appdata Directory etc etc and still no SQLinForm plugin when I restart Notepad++.
    Can anyone assist?
    Thank you



  • Please provide the following informations:

    Do you run a local installation of Noteapd++ (installed by an installer-exe)? If yes: did you select the option “don’t use %APPDATA%” during installation?

    Additionally, post the path of notepad++.exe and the path to which you have copied the plugin DLL file.



  • Do you run a local installation of Noteapd++ (installed by an installer-exe)?

    • Local installation

    If yes: did you select the option “don’t use %APPDATA%” during installation?

    • No I did not select this option

    Additionally, post the path of notepad++.exe and the path to which you have copied the plugin DLL file
    The exe is located at C:\program files\notepad++
    The path to the plug-in is
    %localappdata%\notepad++\plugins\sqlinform

    Let me know if you need more information



  • Since the DLL file of the SQLinForm plugin is named SQLinFormNpp.dll the file has to be copied to %LocalAppData%\notepad++\plugins\SQLinFormNpp. The name of the directory has to exactly match the name of the DLL file excluding the extension .dll



  • SQLInForm is available from the pluginAdmin list:

    		"folder-name": "SQLinFormNpp64",
    		"display-name": "SQLinForm",
    		"version": "5.3.19",
    		"id": "651b3ce87fe1263c7ccfaa63d61ddf1ed41532a9572c513a6ec942cc445f3524",
    		"repository": "https://www.sqlinform.com/npp/SQLinFormNpp64_5.3.19.zip",
    		"description": "SQLinForm formats plain SQL, SQL embedded in Program Code, SQL snippets and SQL Statements with syntax errors.\r\n SQLinForm's Plugin for Notepad++ has a powerful code folding feature and formats your SQL as you Type. It supports all major DB like Oracle, DB2, SQL Server, Teradata, Netezza, MySQL, Sybase, MS Access, etc. SQLinForm incorporates its own multi-DB parser engine. No additional software is required.",

    , so installation via PA went fine during my tests.
