I opted to update a plugin. This wasn't successful and now am getting an alert telling me that the file gpup.exe is missing whenever I start Notepad++ Portable. Here are the details:
I just upgraded to version 5.5. When I restarted it told me there was an update to one of my plugins (change bars) and offered to update it for me. I accepted. Then it told me that it would have to install another couple of plugins and that it would do it without asking, which I assume it did. Then I had to restart.
When I restart it tells me that: There are still some pending actions to complete installing or removing some plugins. Would you like to do these now (Notepad++ will be restarted)?
I select yes. Then I get another Notepad++ Plugin Manager alert that says: A file needed by the plugin manager (gpup.exe) is not present under the updater directory. You should update or reinstall the Plugin Manager to fix this problem. Notepad++ will not restart.
I can't find the gpup.exe file anywhere under the PortableApps\Notepad++Portable directory.
I now get those messages every time I start Notepad++ portable. I don't know if this is a general Notepad++ problem or a Notepad++Portable specific problem. Please can someone investigate?
