JSTools incompatible with NPP 8.5.x
Tried to update to the latest JSTools x64 for NPP 8.5.1 and 8.5.2; however, its complaining that the jstools.dll is incompatible and asking to remove it by selecting “yest”. When selected, it still complains. I must manually delete the dll in the plugins directory for Json.
JSTools 1.2205 x64 installs just fine in a fresh Notepad++ v8.5.2, and is not incompatible.
There are times when you have done upgrades in the wrong order, or upgrade across too many versions of Notepad++ or a plugin, where it might say it’s incompatible. (Or if you have tried to manually install the 64bit plugin for the 32bit Notepad++, or vice versa.) And sometimes, Plugins Admin is not able to request the correct permissions necessary to uninstall a plugin when it’s gotten itself into that weird state. If you are in that weird situation, then sometimes it is required to manually delete the DLL before you re-install the correct version.

What version of JSTool were you using before you tried to uninstall the incompatible one? Because the JSTool plugin, as seen at its home at https://github.com/sunjw/jstoolnpp, uses the DLL known as Plugins\JSMinNpp\JSMinNpp.dll. Please note it is not
JSTools.dll, and it is not a
Jsondirectory. (Being precise when you ask questions will help you get more meaningful answers.)
