What is the correct way to update NPP?



  • The last time I performed an update, I think from v 7.5.7 to v7.6.6 32 bit, I lost all my plugins and their settings.

    I had opened NPP and was presented with …

    Alt text

    So, I clicked ‘Yes’ and followed through with the installation and lost all my plugins and settings.

    I am now being invited to update again but am worried that the same will happen again.

    Any advice please?

    If you still currently have 7.6.6, I think you don’t have anything to worry about.



  • @Alan-Kilborn Thanks for the reply.
    As an aside, can you tell me why I don’t receive any notifications of replies?

    If you mean like email notification, well, this site just doesn’t work that way. You have to check back to see replies. If you want to just do a quick check, the little bell icon in the upper right will have a white-on-red number in it if any threads you create have replies, or you are “@ mentioned” in any other threads…or if any of your postings are “upvoted”.
