New enhancement for User Defined Language System
welcome to the notepad++ community, @Christoph-von-Wittich
if you want to deploy udls for all users right now, you could use a %ProgramData% install (see option 1).
this installation type will allow deployment of udls for all users to
it will also allow central settings for all users, and enable users to use plugins admin without admin rights, e.g. to update plugins.
another way for default installs, is to use the cloud settings to define a locally shared folder, which is accessible for all desired users. note: to share this setting on default installs, you have to define a config.model.xml, which will be deployed as config.xml to all users that do not have a config.xml yet, or alternatively make the changes to the existing config.xml files located at each user’s %AppData%.
Copying the userDefineLangs to %ProgramData% does not work.
And installing the whole application to %ProgramData% is a really bad idea security wise and will be blocked by AppLocker anyway.
