N++ 8.x crash dump file
I have one issue want to check or report it.
Its N++ always crashes after I use and close N++.
The file size is not fixed. Sometimes the dump file size is over 20MB, sometimes less than 15MB.
the path is C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\CrashDumps
the file name is notepad++.exe.112156.dmp (112156 is a random number)
The issue is from 8.x to now 8.4.7.
the pool is over 3GB, and over 200 files were generated by N++ before I removed it.
Condition: Win10 21H2~22H2
N++ Ver : 8.x
how: after opening any files including text files, then close N++
Does this crash also occur when you start Npp without plugins?
Just rename the plugin folder, which is either in the installation directory or in appdata\notepad++, depending on your current installation.
If I rename the plugin folder, I still don’t know which plugins crashed or if it’s an NPP crash.
did you know how to check it?
I’m not sure I understand what you mean. If you rename the plugin folder and it still crashes then it is triggered by Npp itself, otherwise it is triggered by one of your installed plugins.
If it is a plugin, then one option would be to figure out which one is responsible, by renaming all the plugins and reactivate one by one until the crash occurs again.
The other option would be to open the dmp file in a program like windbg and analyze which call threw the exception, which means having a good understanding of how things work under the hood.
