Does anyone know how to launch the new built-in Plugin Admin?
It does not work in portable build atm, you have to use installer to have Plugins Admin.
There is some discussion here, but still no viable solution.
The dll is recognized when you place it manually, but NPP warns that the ANSI plugin won't work in Unicode app...
Thank you and yes I'm using the portable version as always but couldn't find it.
Placing plugins manually within a folder for each one works.
Guess I don't really need such Plugin Admin for the time being, perhaps never.
The 'Plugin Admin' plug-in? It does not work here, and it is stated by the developer (in the link I posted earlier) -
