Column Sort plugin; NppColumnSort-18.104.22.168
How do I get this plugin to work in the current version of NPP? I use the plugin all of the time but it wont work after about version 7.5.6 (32 bit).
Please help or add this type of feature in the default software, where you won’t need a plugin.
Version 7.6 started using the Plugins Admin functionality, although I believe the plugin installation structure started changing around version 7.5.8.
The critical change was to to require each plugin be installed in a separate folder (using the base name of the plugin dll file) under the plugins folder, e.g.,
%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Notepad++\plugins\NppColumnSortbased on the
relatively ancientnot kept current blum.org blog entry.
Alternatively, install the desired plugin using the
Plugins > Plugins Admin...menu selection in your new Npp installation.

Can confirm @artie-finkelstein is correct - I manually installed the 64-bit version from https://github.com/blumu/NppColumnSort/releases/tag/22.214.171.124-64bits in
$(NPP_DIRECTORY)\plugins\NppColumnSort\NppColumnSort.dlland it works fine. I don’t think it is available via Plugins Admin - so the manual route is needed.
My apologies on the incorrect reference to Plugins Admin. It looks like I was using the ‘Installed’ tab, not the ‘Available’ tab when I was tracking it down. Mea culpa [My bad].
I tried to install and I get an error that says cant run a 32 bit plugin.
I am running the latest 64 bit version
Here is where the plugin dll is install

You can’t on 64-bit. Download the correct plugin version:
