Does this replace Notepad.exe? I guess I could just download it to find out, but I figure I could ask here in case others are wondering as well.

how does this one compare to NotePad2, which is the one I tend to use now...
If it is any better I am willing to make the swith :)

And Kel is this included in any of your UberPacks (i.e. UberPack + LitePack) ???

Replace Notepad

Post by T D » Thu Jun 01, 2006 12:29 pm

If you want to replace Notepad completely, there's a launcher on the downloads section of their site. Download, unzip, modifype and makecab. Rename to notepad.ex_, place in i386 and you're good to go :D

Thanks Kel!

There is a problem when using the notepad.exe launcher. I have integrated the addon + copied the notepad.ex_ (after modpe and cab) to i386.

The problem is that when trying to open a file, a popup error appears about "error opening file "" ", but after clicking ok, notepad++ opens with the correct file.

Any idea to fix this behaviour?

Thanks

Thanks for the great addon!

Can we get a copy of this that is not uninstallable and does not add itself in program files for those looking to completely replace the old notepad, please?

I agree with fearphage, also with notepad.exe dummy replacement to invoke notepad++.

Thanks

Ok, here's a cab addon for the dummy npp launcher. Just in case you can't be bothered to mod pe, makecab and copy/paste ;)
I have tested. It will work unless nlite adds functionality to remove notepad, so then I'll have to add txtsetup and dosnet entries.

http://ez-files.net/download.php?file=0fb34ddb

Some people are having problems with this but it works for me.

@fearphage NPP will still need to be somewhere for the launcher to launch it. There should be a separate addon for those wishing to completely replace notepad.exe.

So if I take this addon and add the comperessed notepad++ launcher as notepad.ex_ then this would essentially be an uninstallable notepad replacement.

Would it be too much trouble to simultanously make and maintain a NON-uninstallable version with the launcher in it Kels or should I do this myself? I don't mind either way.

I've made a basic cab addon of the launcher.
viewtopic.php?t=2416&sid=ab7296bb95fd5d ... 98b1909ed0
But it would be nice if there was two versions of the cab, one that is uninstallable, and one that isn't that has the launcher in it.

Ok, here's a temporary addon that is NOT uninstallable with the launcher. Just while Kel works on a REAL one because this is just a mod of the "official" one.
Can someone test if it's correct? Basically, I removed the sysoc in entries.ini, and removed shortcuts, delreg and delfiles etc in Note.IN_

@Kel.:
Would you please recheck your links? I think you put the same file under both links in your first post.
Both are named "Kels_NotePad++_addon_replacer_v3.7.cab" in the browser status bar. I need the uninstallable one, please. Again my thanks for updating it.

The cab uses features to integrate unavailable in nlite, use Rvm Integrator.
I made a bit of the cab and there are no structural mistakes.

I only updated this in my Addon packs that I always add into my nlite installs and half of the proggies never were installed. Maybe I should have read the full tread before installing it.

Ah I see what is the issue with nLite and notepad++.
If you don't enable reports it will automatically skip notepad.ex_ because of the virtualy older version.
It asked me should it overwrite notepad with this older version (0.0.0.0)
enable reports and answer no.
In the meantime I'll figure out about this version checking and addons, maybe to disable it but that's not good...rather a switch to ignore versions in entries.ini?

When i found the problem, i told nuhi about it. I also think that the better solution would be the skip file version switch in the entries.ini.

Another temporary solution would be to resedit the notepad.exe dummy file version number to a newer version than the original from xp.

Updated this one to 3.8 and reshacked the notepad dummy file so now the replacement addon works with nLite...

Hi Kels, I have a suggestion...

During Windows setup, I like to SHIFT-F10 and open notepad to check out the various setup files.
Now in the replacement notepad++ addon, notepad.exe is replaced by the dummy launcher file, so until SYSOC.INF is processed at T-14/T-13 and Notepad++.exe is installed to %ProgramFiles%\Notepad++, running notepad.exe will do absolutely nothing.

So can you change the addon so that you add the dummy file as a new file in SYSTEM32 and then add a line to PendingRenameOperations REG_MULTI_SZ key, so that the dummy file overwrites %WinDir%\SYSTEM32 on first reboot ? This will allow running the regular notepad.exe until the new one gets installed.

I have figured out this, assuming notepad.exe in the addon will be renamed to noterep.exe and that the appropriate 2 lines for noterep.exe has been added to [txtsetup_files] (one to put in %WinDir%\SYSTEM32 and another in %WinDir%), all you need is to add these lines to an AddReg section in Note.inf :
HKLM,"SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager","PendingFileRenameOperations",0x00010008,"\??\%11%\NoteRep.EXE"
HKLM,"SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager","PendingFileRenameOperations",0x00010008,"\??\%11%\Notepad.EXE"
HKLM,"SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager","PendingFileRenameOperations",0x00010008,"\??\%10%\NoteRep.EXE"
HKLM,"SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager","PendingFileRenameOperations",0x00010008,"\??\%10%\Notepad.EXE"
EDIT: It works but Windows interprets the data incorrectly, anyway, I'll just put another editor in i386 to use, never mind Kel, addon is great as it is :) .

I just integrated Kels_NotePad++_addon_replacer_v3.9.cab with RVM Integrator 1.4.2. After installing the OS, notepad++ shows up in All Programs, but it didnt replace notepad in Accessories and going to 'Start', 'Run', and typing notepad and pressing enter just opens the regular notepad. Did anyone else experience this? Thanks!
