Notepad++ doesn't seem to load the luascript plugin's startup script

I'm trying to use this startup script https://community.notepad-plus-plus.org/topic/11233/disable-ascii-contro... to disable the ctrl+shift+v shortcut from creating SYN characters.

I think it might be failing due to how notepad++ portable loads the configs. IE:

These folders are temporarily created when Notepad++ portable is opened correctly:
F:\Programs\PortableApps\Notepad++Portable\App\Notepad++\plugins\config
F:\Programs\PortableApps\Notepad++Portable\App\Notepad++64\plugins\config

It moves them to one of those folders from:
F:\Programs\PortableApps\Notepad++Portable\Data\Config\plugins\config

Then when you close npp it moves them back.

That is where the luascript startup config is located.

I tried changing the luascript config in the temporary folders (App\Notepad++64\plugins\config) too by directly running the notepad++.exe file directly from the App\Notepad++64 folder, but that didn't work either.

If I open the lua startup script (startup.lua) and then select "execute this script" then it applies properly. But it doesn't save the loaded changes after restarting npp.

There's another method using a python startup script https://community.notepad-plus-plus.org/topic/25179/special-characters-w... which I assume would have the same problem.
