Plugins > Plugins Admin... missing

  • Hello,

    I want to add NppFTP plugin but there is no “Plugins Admin…”
    I tried launching NotePad++ with admin and searched for info in this forum but can’t find anything.
    How can I solve it ?

  • welcome to the notepad++ community, @papryka1

    we do not have your current debug information, so here is a general guide:

    one thing that can cause what you see is, if the plugin list is missing.
    please go to plugins > open plugins folder... and look for a folder called Config. this has to contain a file called nppPluginList.dll, which contains the plugin list.

    (in your case you will have to browse manually to your notepad++ program and plugins folder, e.g.:
    C:\Program Files\Notepad++\plugins\Config or C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\Config and check if the file called nppPluginList.dll is missing)

    how to re-install plugins admin:

    (uninstall of the existing notepad++ is not necessary)

    important: when you re-install notepad++ over your existing notepad++, make sure that the installer options plugins and plugins admin are enabled.

    note: on some occasions you will have to re-install twice, first time de-selecting the options plugins and plugins admin, and then re-installing another time activating both options plugins and plugins admin.

  • Thanks for the help! Got it all working.
