When Notepad++ 4.2 is loaded the following dialogue box pops-up:
Load stylers.xml failed!"
As always, when reporting a bug, there is certain additional information you need to give before we can even begin to address this:
What operating system are you using?
Where is the application installed (full path)?
Is this a virgin install or an upgrade of 4.1.2?
If an upgrade, were you using the PortableApps.com release of Notepad++ Portable or one packaged by someone else?
Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
Windows XP, service packs up-to-date
App is in SanDisk 2G USB stick, full path: F:\\programs\Notepad++Portable\Notepad++Portable.exe
Not a virgin install; upgrade from previous version packaged by PortableApps.com

Did you do any customizations to the stylers.xml file at all? That's all I can think of offhand. I've tested the upgrade process and it worked on my 4.1.2 to 4.2 install.
To fix your install, with N++P closed, copy stylers.xml from the Notepad++Portable\App\DefaultData\settings directory to the Notepad++Portable\Data\settings directory overwriting what's already there.
No customizations were done to any files.
I did an install on the desktop and compared the desktop to the USB stick folder and several files in the stick Data folder were missing (by comparison).
I did a delete of the stick parent folder (Notepad++Portable) and moved the new install desktop folder to the stick. When I started N++P the same error occurred.
However, when I did your recommendation (re: copy stylers.xml ... above) the error went away.
Thank you for your help.
However, after searching for the same error and reading John's answer to gvgerman, I found that stylers.xml was missing from my Notepad++Portable\Data\settings directory. As soon as I copied it there and opened the program, I did not get a Configurator error and the application works fine. Thought you should know!
Windows XP SP2, up-to-date with patches.

I tried to copy the stylers.xml file, in the first time it's deleted when I activated N++ and some other files created, I tried to copy the stylers.xml file again and now the file stay there but the message continue...
