Support for Windows 8 ?

Postby DFH » Thu Jun 07, 2012 10:27 pm

With this now being in 'release preview', will TextPipe installation be compatible with Windows 8 ?

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_8

Hi David,

Have not even looked at Windows 8, but TP should work fine with it. We have very few O/S dependencies.

Hi Simon,

Pasted from the release notes for Notepad++ 6.1.4 which may give you pause for thought....
1. Fix a crash issue of Windows 8's Computer Manager due to Notepad++'s Shell Extension (Explorer's context menu).

It's been the case that a new release of Windows has shown that Microsoft have changed something at the heart of the Context Menu that affects apps with Shell Extensions. Fore-warned is fore-armed.
