Notepad 7.6.3 and 7.6.4 / SourceCookifier 0.7.3 / 'ctags.exe' not found!



  • Notepad 7.6.3 and 7.6.4 / SourceCookifier 0.7.3 / ‘ctags.exe’ not found!

  • I never used this plugin but could it be that ctags.exe must be in the directory where notepad++.exe is?



  • Hello,

    Try putting ctags.exe in C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\SourceCookifier\SourceCookifier folder -
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\SourceCookifier\SourceCookifier\ctags.exe .

    BR



  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\SourceCookifier\SourceCookifier\ctags.exe

    WORKED! Will test the behavior in daily business.

    Thanks in advance



  • Folder structure:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\SourceCookifier\icons
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\SourceCookifier\AddPolicy.bat
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\SourceCookifier\RemovePolicy.bat
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\SourceCookifier\SourceCookifier.dll

    Only moved:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\SourceCookifier\ctags.exe
    To:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\SourceCookifier\SourceCookifier\ctags.exe



  • @Manissel ,

    I’m not sure but logically all SourceCookifier files except the SourceCookifier.dll should be where the ctags.exe is -
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\SourceCookifier\SourceCookifier\

    BR



  • @Manissel and all

    if you encounter any further problems with the SourceCookifier plugin and it’s folder structure:
    (for example because it was already installed, prior to installing notepad++ 7.6.3)

    • go to your plugins folder.

    • move the SourceCookifier folder to your desktop.
      (you can delete it later, if you don’t need any custom files from there)

    • important note: it is recommended not to remove any plugins using plugins admin, if they have not been installed by plugins admin.
      (side note: you can distinguish some plugins, if they are not in the official plugins list, as they have the extension .dll in the plugins admin installed list)

    • install a fresh SourceCookifier 0.7.3 using plugins admin.

    if SourceCookifier is installed using plugins admin, all plugin files should automatically be deployed to their correct locations of the respective notepad++ version.



  • Clean installation / Notepad 7.6.4 / SourceCookifier 0.7.3 via Plugins Admin / Folder structure:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\SourceCookifier\Config\SourceCookifier.languages.model.xml

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\SourceCookifier\doc\SourceCookifier.README.TXT

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\SourceCookifier\SourceCookifier\icons
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\SourceCookifier\SourceCookifier\AddPolicy.bat
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\SourceCookifier\SourceCookifier\ctags.exe
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\SourceCookifier\SourceCookifier\RemovePolicy.bat

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\SourceCookifier\SourceCookifier.dll

    The icons from the sub folder “icons” are not display in the Notepad++ itself.
    (Anyhow possible to add a screenshot?)
