Why there is no new HexEditor now?



  • Nobody takes care of it now?



  • welcome to the notepad++ community, @user4898426

    you might be on an older version of notepad++, if you don’t find the hex editor plugin.

    • please update to notepad++ 7.6.6.
    • go to the menu plugins > plugins admin as seen at the screenshot below.
    • enter hexin the search field.
    • select hex-editor and press ìnstall`

    note: if you want to have the newest version of hex editor (0.9.5.19),
    you can replace your HexEditor.dll manually, with a release from >>> here <<<.

    quote of the day: we are nobody, so we take care of it now.



  • @Meta-Chuh Awesome explain! This applies to the 32 bit version of NPP, no?

    How does one install your plug-in in the 64 bit version of NPP?

    It is currently only in the Plugins Admin for the 32-bit version.

    However, that’s why @Meta-Chuh included the manual instructions as well; the link he pointed to will work for either 32-bit (…x86.zip) or 64-bit (…x64.zip)

    Since Meta didn’t explain the manual install, but normally does, I get to do it this time :-)

    To actually perform the manual install:

    • unzip the appropriate downloaded zipfile and open that containing folder (or have the zipfile open in windows explorer)
    • In Notepad++, use Plugins > Open Plugins Folder.
    • In the newly-opened plugins folder, add a subfolder HexEditor.
    • Copy the HexEditor.dll from the zipfile into the HexEditor subfolder… so it should be at ...\notepad++\plugins\HexEditor\HexEditor.dll
    • Exit all copies of Notepad++.
    • Run a fresh copy.
    • HexEditor should be available in the Plugins menu, and HexEditor.dll should be listed in the ? > Debug Info plugins list.

    (Actually, I think he has those instructions, in a more generic form, in various places… but I forget where; I need to bookmark that for the future.)



  • @PeterJones – thank you for reposting directions on manual instrucations. creating a folder to put the DLL in was not discussed on many other threads, nor was the 32/64 bit issue … just letting you know your post is appreciated!



  • I followed instructions, yet can’t get the Hex editor to show in Plugins Admin.
