Project panel does not pop up
Good afternoon ,
in my Office environment they upgrade to notepadd++ 7.6.6 32 bits. Since the upgrade, when I try to open a project panel nothing happen, the project docking window does not appear anymore. I have all my useful files in project 1. I try to open project 2 or 3 but same no windows appear.
How to add information log/debug to understand why this happen ?
this feature is so useful, I use it also at home with the same version and this one is working perfectly.
Thanks a lot.
would you mind posting the debug-info?
It is available under ? menu and would reveal how npp is setup and where to look for
configuration files etc.
here is the information. thanks for helping.
Notepad++ v7.6.6 (32-bit). I just copy back the XML tools that working fine.
Build time : Apr 3 2019 - 23:49:50
Path : C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe
Admin mode : OFF
Local Conf mode : OFF
OS : Windows 10 (64-bit)
Plugins : mimeTools.dll NppConverter.dll NppExport.dll XMLTools.dll
because of Local Conf mode : OFF your configuration files are located under
%APPDATA%\notepad++ (in reality something like C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++).
There should be a file called config.xml in it.
This xml should have an xml tag like
<ProjectPanels> <ProjectPanel id="0" workSpaceFile="C:\Users\eren\AppData\Roaming\Notepad++\npp_projects" /> <ProjectPanel id="1" workSpaceFile="" /> <ProjectPanel id="2" workSpaceFile="" /> </ProjectPanels>
Can you check if this is the case?
Can you copy the content of that tag.
Note, to inculde it like I did use 3 ~ in front and after the text, like
here is the contain of the file
<ProjectPanels> <ProjectPanel id="0" workSpaceFile="C:\cs-coe\workspace2.xml" /> <ProjectPanel id="1" workSpaceFile="" /> <ProjectPanel id="2" workSpaceFile="" /> </ProjectPanels> ~~~ xml data ~~~ and the full file contains point to my project contains , I have used this one for a while and also sorte to have file in alphabetic order C:\Users\phuybens>dir C:\cs-coe\workspace2.xml Volume in drive C is System Volume Serial Number is BEC0-4DC3 Directory of C:\cs-coe 05/15/2019 03:32 PM 6,005 workspace2.xml 1 File(s) 6,005 bytes 0 Dir(s) 198,528,884,736 bytes free and there is no error in the xml file , I can provide the contains , but when open in notepadd++ there is no xml error ;-) thanks for your help
@Ekopalypse : what I do not understand that if i try to open another project (the other empty one) there is also not pop up windows. No wait to start Notepad++ with debug information ?
no, npp doesn’t have something like a log file to see what is going on.
Because you mentioned that none of the panels appears I thought the tag got corrupted
but doesn’t look like this is the case.
What you can try is to stop npp and rename config.xml.
When starting npp it will create a default one. Does this work?
@Ekopalypse : Yes, this was the solution, Now the Workspace windows is pop up again.
Many many thanks Ekopalypse.
