Just a word to the wise folks about trying to invoke notepad++.exe using the Run command: it won't work! For some reason the Run command does not like the 2 +'s at the end of the filename. I have tried and proved this by creating a stub that does nothing else but try to kick it off and it fails with a 0 handle and an @error of 1 until I remove the 2 +'s and then it fires it up nicely. This is, of course, only of use to me as other users who have installed Notepad++ won't want to rename the exe file as this will break the upgrade path. This is most annoying as I use the full path to notepad++ in an ini file to allow users to choose their favourite editor when using my app and it defaults to Notepad (as it is designed to do) because it cannot "find" notepad++ (which was how I came to investigate the problem in the first place). This didn't used to happen in earlier versions, any ideas Jon? It might even be the notepad++'s exe file used to not have the 2 +'s in but I have no way of finding this out.
