    I just upgraded one of my m/c's to Windows 7 and re-installed Notepad++ and am having problems trying to save files.
    I get this response
    I have already posted in the SourceForge Notepad++ help forum, but thought that one of our own might have encountered this frustrating quirk and have the solution?;)

    If this is a web page, are you browsing it at the same time as editing? XAMP may also be laying claim to it as well if it's a PHP file - not sure on that one though...

    Only thing I can think of mate, other than the obvious "Get a Mac!"... :rolleyes:

    Why on earth would I get a Scotsman? Seriously... I have xampp activated but not running in the browser - but I've always been able to edit with xampp running and open in browser with no mutual exclusivity, whilst running on windows xp. But this problemo only seems to have occurred on windows 7. While browsing the Notepad++ forum there was an anonymous thread posing the exact same problem - with a note from the moderator saying we don't accept anonymous posts - so no help there, yet...

    I am running Notepad++ on a Windows 7 64bit machine and it doesn't exhibit these problems. I do use Wampserver though so it may be Xampp but I think it unlikely.

    Colin - I downloaded Notepad++ 6.1.5 onto a 32-bit m/c running under windows 7 - might this be a problem?

    It looks like a quirk in the latest NP++ version - I went back to version 6.1.3 and everything's hunkey-dorey...

    I have enough flak from hyphens and commas, without wanting to upset our Celtic brethren!

    We best be careful - we could end up being whisk(ey)ed off to prison to do some porridge! (Now I'm scraping barrel bottoms as well!):D

    Well folks, it's still a problem! Un-installing and re-installing solved the problem for the length of time I had Notepad++ open (i.e. I could save). But when I close and reopen the problem reoccurs. Grrr! :mad:

    Just a though Jim...have you looked at other editors? I've found notepad++ to be highly painful, but to each his own.
