NPPFTP with NPP v8.1.2



  • Hi,

    I’ve made the upgrade of my NPP (to v8.1.2).

    Now, i’ve lost the NPPFTP extension, and i can’t reinstall it (if i try, it restart NPP, but after it’s the same).

    Help !



  • Precision : it’s the same if i try to install another plugin.



  • @Dominique-Charbonnel ,

    My copy of NPP v8.1.2 that was upgraded from an earlier version but already had NppFTP still works.

    I unzipped a fresh portable NPP v8.1.2 into a known-writable directory, and used Plugins Admin to install NppFTP, and after restarting Notepad++, NppFTP worked as expected.

    So NppFTP works with NPP v8.1.2.

    My guess is that you have a permission issue – especially since you tried to install another plugin and it still didn’t work. My recommendation:

    1. Try with just simple permissions
      1. Exit notepad++
      2. go into c:\program files\notepad++\ (or wherever notepad++.exe is on your system) and make sure that the plugins subdirectory exists and that you have write permission:
        • Right Click on Plugins, select Properties
        • Select Security tab and click Edit
        • If your username is in the list on the top, click on it; otherwise Add it
        • Once your username is selected, in the “Allow” column, click on the Full Control (change box from ☐ to ☑)
        • Apply then OK to get out of top dialog, then OK to get out of remaining dialog
      3. Start Notepad++ and try to install NppFTP (or other plugin) again
    2. If that doesn’t work, try again with elevated permissions
      1. Exit notepad++
      2. go into c:\program files\notepad++\ (or wherever notepad++.exe is on your system)
      3. right click on notepad++.exe, and select Run As Administrator
      4. try to install NppFTP (or other plugin) again

    If neither works, give the exact sequence of events in your own words, so that we can help you debug what went wrong



  • Hello,

    I’ve find the cause : the proxy of my job.

    Thanks for your help.
