    https://notepad-plus-plus.org/news/v795-released/

    The enhancements & bug-fixes in v7.9.5:

    1. Fix Notepad++ not starting up due to SaveAsAdmin plugin (for installer package). (Fix #9514)
    2. Fix UNC path with quotes handling in folder & file Open/Save dialog. (Fix #9582)
    3. Fix file doesn’t save as extension type on Windows 7. (Fix #9657)


  • Still getting this “Compatibility fix applied to C:\Programs\Notepad++\notepad++.exe.” spam in Window 10 under Event Viewer. Anyone else?

  • Show Indent Guide and Enable scrolling beyond last line feature is still turned on by default

  • @ImSpecial I see the same on Windows 10. I can only guess about the reasons.
    Could be something about DPI or about file dialogs or maybe something different.
    It’s hard to narrow it down.

    By the way, I don’t see the same event when using Notepad++ on Windows 7 VM.
    Can anyone with Windows 7 confirm that? Maybe, because it has been used for a small amount of time there.



  • @ImSpecial I can see similar events for these apps in Event Viewer:

    • Skype
    • Spotify
    • SystemSettings
    • YourPhone
    • backgroundTaskHost

    Some are built-in Windows apps.
    The FixID is different but the Flags are the same.



  • @mere-human-0

    I don’t use those so cannot comment on them, but at least I’m not alone in this notepad issue.



  • @ImSpecial you’re alone. I have win 10 and notepad ++ works fine. Uninstall old version and reinstall new version what are stupid reasons are here xD



  • @Manuel-Ortega

    Pretty weird that “I’m alone” on this when user mere-human just above me confirmed he gets them too.

    I also never said that my notepad++ “didn’t work fine”, only that these Events are a newish development, maybe started when the XP dropping? change happened a few versions back, and I am only wondering if these are a system specific issue or if it’s a general OS thing that others are also seeing, which would be of a less concern.

    change happened a few versions back

    By the way, do you know the exact version when it started? Maybe, it could help to narrow issue down.



  • @Manuel-Ortega said in Notepad++ v7.9.5 released:

    Show Indent Guide and Enable scrolling beyond last line feature is still turned on by default

    I don’t find that “Enable scrolling beyond last line” is “on by default”.
    I do find that “Show Indent Guide” is “on by default”.
    But…who cares? Turn them off if you don’t like them on.

    I don’t see this on my Windows7 x64 OS.



  • @ImSpecial

    It took me a bit of time to find the area of Event Viewer that you show.
    It might have helped to provide a complete “path” to the area for others that might want to check theirs. Here’s how I “drilled down” to find it:

    In the left-hand pane, navigate this tree:

    • Event Viewer (Local)
    • Applications and Services Logs
    • Microsoft
    • Windows
    • Application-Experience
    • Program-Telemetry

    And yes, I do see the same thing on Windows 10.
    And I see this in Notepad++ as far back as version 6.7.5 (the earliest I had handy to try).



  • @mere-human-0

    No I do not know exactly when they started showing up, and frankly it would be way to much effort to do so, since even if I did find the exact version of notepad++, would it get fixed? doubtful…

    @Alan-Kilborn

    My picture if very quite clear actually.

    You’re under the impression that something needs fixing here. Given that apparently a lot of common applications do this as noted above.

    My picture if very quite clear actually.

    Don’t be daft. It’s only “quite clear” if someone is very familiar with Event Viewer.



  • I googled with keywords “event viewer compatibility fix applied to” without finding any answer. No idea what it is but it seems not an important issue.



  • The last hope in this “Event Viewer compatibility fix message” issue would be to ask on some Microsoft forums.



  • @mere-human

    IMO, you’re better off finding out by disabling this “compatibility fix” fixing (probably a Windows Service of similar name) and running notepad++ then, and “hopefully” notice some kind of issue and fix said issue. Then once fixed, maybe this “compatibility fix” won’t happen anymore. (A big if :P)



  • There’s also a Group Policy that does just that.

  • FYI:
    Notepad++'s Auto-updater has been triggered for updating to v7.9.5.



  • In the latest version, the functionlist definition of markdown does not work. Creating a new custom file does not work either.

    Notepad++\functionList.xml

    add:

          <association id="Markdown_Monokai" userDefinedLangName="Markdown_Monokai"/>
          <association id="Markdown_Monokai" ext=".md"/>
          <association id="Markdown_Monokai" ext=".markdown"/>
