Bug in contextMenu.xml
The result is:
The requested URL /viewvc/notepad-plus/trunk/PowerEditor/installer/nativeLang/english.xml was not found on this server.
your contextMenu.xml is very, very old, older than the switch from sourceforge to github.
newer versions have this url at line 28:
note: if you want to read or get the newest contextMenu.xml, without downloading or installing a new notepad++, you can download it directly from >>> here <<<
Thank you very much.
I have just installed NPP 64 bit. That removed the 32 bit version but left my settings. If that procedure leaves an unchanged old contextMenu.xml the installation is not correct at this point.

yes, you are correct.
the reason is, that the notepad++ installer/updater will not replace your existing contextMenu.xml.
this is by design and works correctly, as it would otherwise remove any customised context menu settings, every time a user makes an update.
note: you will always find two different copies of contextMenu.xml on an installed version of notepad++.
%AppData%\Notepad++\contextMenu.xmlwhich contains user customisations, and one template at
%ProgramFiles%\Notepad++\contextMenu.xmlwhich contains all new changes of the latest update/install, allowing you to compare it to your personal contextMenu.xml.
