I cannot download unless I install Driver One. Why is that?

  • @Jim-Lawrence ,

    I don’t know what Driver One is. It is not a prerequisite for Notepad++.

    If you are having difficulty downloading from the official Notepad++ download site at https://www.notepad-plus-plus.org/downloads/ , then maybe your I.T. department is blocking the site, or otherwise requiring it to go through some “nanny” software (maybe that’s what Driver One is) before running a new application on your PC.

    If you are on company equipment, you will need to talk with your IT department to find out if you’re allowed to install Notepad++, and if so, what the proper procedure is for you.

    If you are on your own computer, then I would recommend scanning for virus/malware if you’re seeing something that says “Driver One must be installed” or equivalent. If you have verified you are not infected with anything, then please share the exact steps you are trying in order to download and install Notepad++ (where you are downloading from, exact link URL, etc), and exactly what errors/popups you see.
