Notepad++ crashing

  • Notepad++ v7.7 (64-bit)
    Build time : May 19 2019 - 13:05:35
    Path : C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe
    Admin mode : ON
    Local Conf mode : OFF
    OS : Windows 10 (64-bit)

    I’m using cake php which has .ctp extension on change its language from top menu to HTML or PHP my notepad++ is crashing

  • welcome to the notepad++ community, and many thanks for your debug information, @bisht-sanjeet

    please test the following, to verify, if a clean notepad++ (without any plugins that could cause this) would work on your system, when switching a .ctp file to html or php at the language menu:

    • download the notepad++ 7.7 64 bit portable version from >>> here <<<.
      (the portable version does not require any installation and runs completely independent and isolated from your installed version. all custom settings, as well as any stuff you might want to try at the portable version, will not modify your installed version)

    • extract to your desktop.
      (copy from your download folder to your desktop, right-click on it, select extract all from the explorer context menu, and press extract to extract it to a folder called npp.7.7.bin.x64)

    • important note: make sure to close all instances of notepad++ that might be running, before starting the portable version at the next step, to be sure you are using the portable version for this test.

    • open the extracted npp.7.7.bin.x64 folder and start this portable version by double-clicking on notepad++.exe inside this folder.
      (note: notepad++.exe will just be seen as notepad++, if you have enabled to hide all known file extensions at your explorer settings)

    • open up one of your .ctp files and change to html and php multiple times, to see whether it still crashes.

    best regards.

  • @Meta-Chuh -
    Hey, I tried it.
    Not crashing on portable version.

  • @bisht-sanjeet

    perfect, thanks for reporting back.

    now you can try uninstalling the DSpellCheck plugin from the notepad++ menu plugins > plugins admin... > installed, by selecting DSpellCheck and pressing remove.
    maybe this plugin version causes the crash.

    note: if it is not DSpellCheck causing the crash, the easiest way to achieve the same correct functionality, as seen at the clean portable version, is to perform an uninstall and clean re-install of your notepad++ 7.7 x64:

    • make sure you have saved all documents, closed notepad++, and you don’t need any specific settings or customisations you have made at your currently installed notepad++.

    • uninstall your existing notepad++ from the windows control panel > programs and features or the windows settings > apps > apps & features list.

    • open %ProgramFiles% in windows explorer, and delete the folder Notepad++, if it still exists.

    • open %ProgramFiles(x86)% in windows explorer, and delete the folder Notepad++, if it exists from an older 32 bit version.

    • open %AppData% in windows explorer, and delete the folder Notepad++, if it still exists.

    • open %LocalAppData% in windows explorer, and delete the folder, if it exists.

    • open %ProgramData% in windows explorer, and delete the folder Notepad++, if it exists.

    • download the npp.7.7.Installer.x64.exe from >>> here <<< and install it.
      make sure you select all your desired options when installing.

    best regards.

  • @bisht-sanjeet Download the AppCrashView utility, and find out why your notepad has to crash.

  • @Meta-Chuh hey, Removing DSpellCheck helped.
    Now it is not crashing.

  • @Meta-Chuh Reinstalled DSpellCheck and its working fine now.

  • @andrecool-68 Thanks for the help. Its working fine now. Issue was in DSpellCheck .

  • @bisht-sanjeet
    …download the latest version of the DSpellCheck plugin, perhaps there will be no crash of notepad ++.
    Do not include many spelling dictionaries at the same time!
