AkelPad plugins write to registry

Submitted by Bruce Huber on January 30, 2018 - 3:04pm

AkelPad is configured to use INI file and its config file shows up correctly in the PortableApps directory.

But many of its plugins are writing to two locations in the registry, and those entries remain in the registry after AkelPad is closed.


The plugins in question are DLLs... Coder, Toolbars, Sessions, etc.

When pack a plugin installer, PortableApps.comInstaller add an empty appinfo.ini to the package App\AppInfo directory which is not require AFAIK.
This cause the file in the main app will be overwrite when the plugin installed.
It also cause error when the plugin installer is packed again. Because the exist of appinfo.ini, PortableApps.comInstaller treat the package as normal package and complain missing of launcher file, icons etc.

Notepad++ - can't add or update plugins, steps I've done and questions I have

I installed Notepad++ (NPP), possibly, by copying it from another computer and pasting to my PortableApps folder on this one, although it may have been by direct install. If copied, it came from a Vista Business machine and this one I'm trying to add an update to is an XP Professional Service Pack 3.
