Plugin Admin not installing any plugins



  • 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:

    Notepad++ v7.8.6 (64-bit)
    Build time : Apr 21 2020 - 15:23:03
    Path : C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe
    Admin mode : OFF
    Local Conf mode : OFF
    OS Name : Windows 10 Enterprise (64-bit)
    OS Version : 1909
    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.
