Cannot Install LuaScript
I just attempted to install the “LuaScript” plugin to N++ 8.4.4 but it was not found in the Plugin Administrator nor was it recognized when I installed it manually.

xxx.dllthen you would put it at
Or…I could have just directed you to the user manual, HERE.
@Alan-Kilborn Thanks - that worked a treat. My problem was not that I couldn’t read but that I thought the two files had to replace others in the zip file I had downloaded and there were no .dll files to replace.
Again, thanks for your help!
