Notepad++ 7.7.1 Release
gr-hayduk last edited by
The 7.7.1 update broken something about Polish ANSI detection. When I open any text file or perl script, it’s in “ANSI” mode and Polish characters cannot be typed in. I need for every single file to leave ANSI with Encoding->Character Set->Central European->Windows 1250 (then it asks to save the file?). After that, the perl scripts are reformatted and I need to go to Language->P->Perl to revert back to correct highlighting and tab size.
So it seems two detections were broken (Encoding and Language).

There was no warning. I’m running the 32 bit version. I had it happen on both my desktop and laptop.

thanks for the answer.
if you like that we have a thorough look at that, please open a separate topic at the category
(a new topic is necessary, because this will probably require many follow up posts, and this amount would affect the release announcement’s readability, as a plugin loss on 2 machines, when updating from 7.7 to 7.7.1 reportedly never happened before)
interesting things to post there in advance would be:
source from where the original notepad++ was downloaded.
(there are reported file and configuration issues with the unofficial microsoft store version and the inofficial portableapps version)
your debug information from the notepad++ menu
? > debug info... > copy debug info into clipboard.
the content of
%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Notepad++\pluginsof both machines, to have a look if the 7.7 plugins are still there.
(this depends on whether this is or was your current or previous install path)
check if the install path has changed, e.g having used a portable version before updating, or a different location than
%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Notepad++\either now or before.
what happens, if you install any plugin now on 7.7.1, and then re-run the same 7.7.1 32 bit installer from >>> here <<<, checking whether the plugins still exist after that, and also taking notes about the selected installer options.
many thanks and best regards.

The issue with typing Polish characters in ANSI mode is correctly fixed with npp 7.7.1 (previously I’ve got 7.7, I’ve must have updated on another machine).
But there’s still issue with switching ANSI encoding to Windows 1250 encoding, which changes tab settings for Perl scripts (to 8 chars, I have default 4 and perl style uses default).

Dear Notepad++ Community,
I had the same problem, my plugins don’t work after update. I have x64 version, the issue is not the x86 because I have no warning for that.
HexEditor and my own plugin (https://github.com/gaebor/NppPlugin/tree/master/rel/Win_Unicode_x64) both stopped working.
I went back to release 7.5.9 which was the last one working. After that 7.6 and 7.6.1 complained about HexEditor (x64, Unicode https://sourceforge.net/projects/npp-plugins/files/Hex Editor/Hex Editor Plugin v0.9.5/)
After that (7.6.2 and onward) they just stop working (although the dll-s present in the same location)

From 7.5 to 7.7 there was a change on where / how the plugins are located. Are the plugins in their own directories in the plugins directory, i.e.,
PS VinsWorldcomT@..\notepad++\plugins> tree .\HexEditor\ .\HexEditor\ `-- HexEditor.dll
FYI: I’ve been using HexEditor 0.9.5 in N++ every version since 6.something. I certainly worked for me in all the versions mentioned here, 7.5.9, 7.7 and 7.7.1.
HexEditor plugin for Notepad ++ … is a child’s toy!
I use full editors!
The “silent” installation switch (/s) doesn’t seem to be working anymore.
@MichielOverweel For the installer
nsis, the key
/shas not been canceled!
start /wait setup.exe /s
@andrecool-68 I’m using the installer that’s available for download (npp.7.7.1.Installer.x64.exe). When I start that one with the “/s” switch, the installation runs interactively instead of silently. This used to work up to version 7.7.
@MichielOverweel Run this:
start /wait npp.7.7.1.Installer.x64.exe /s
@andrecool-68 Yes, that’s what I’m doing. Have you tried this yourself? Does it work for you?
It always works for me!
I can run any installer from the command line!
@MichielOverweel If this is a big problem for you, then use this utility:
She can install the installer in stealth mode, and show the keys for a silent installation.

The menu command Edit->Line Operations->Sort Lines as Integers Ascending broke in this 7.7.1 (64-bit) release. I.e., it does attempt to sort the lines, but the ordering is off. I can’t figure out exactly what ordering it is applying, but while ordered in some fashion, it’s clearly not correct.
It was working in 7.7, and when I reverted to 7.7 from 7.7.1, it began working again. So it’s definitely a regression in 7.7.1. I can provide a longish (140KB) file containing a list of IP addresses that reproduces the issue, if necessary.
