Why is it so hard to deploy Notepad++ in an enterprise environment?



    • I want to silently install Notepad++.
    • I want to be able to configure the proxy setting when deploying. (Ideally it should use the proxy of Internet Explorer since we use Auto-detect and sometimes we don’t use the proxy)
    • I want users to be able to install plugins without having to be admins.

    Only the first point I can do. I also found some useful info here:
    https://community.notepad-plus-plus.org/topic/17232/install-notepad-plugin-without-admin-rights

    But why in gods name does this have to be this complicated?
    Unfortunately the info in the link does not seem to work for me. (It does work, but when I install a plugin when I have the doLocalConf.xml file, it gives me a Hash mismatch error)

    My 2 questions:

    • How do I configure the proxy? Where is this setting saved? (File? Registry?)
    • How do I give users without admin rights the permission to install plugins?
