Plugin admin not installing plugin. When I try to install plugin via plugin admin it fails to install it.
NP++ restarts and there isn’t any plugin installed in the folder.
Here is my debug info:

OS Build : 18363.778
Plugins : mimeTools.dll NppConverter.dll NppExport.dll

Often, when we’ve seen reports of Plugins Admin not installing, it’s because the user needs to define the proxy (some IT departments require a proxy). If you need a proxy, then run Notepad++ as Administrator, and use the ? menu to Set Updater Proxy…. Then you should be able to go back to running Notepad++ as your normal user.
Another possibility is that your
C:\Program Files\Notepad++hierarchy might not be writeable by your normal user (often true of
C:\Program Files), so you might need to run Notepad++ as Administrator to install plugins, then go back and re-run normally for typical usage of the application.
