NppLoader

NppLoader assists in the replacement of the default Windows Notepad with Notepad++. It does this via a trick within a debugging tool, called "Image File Execution Options". It means that anytime Notepad is to be run, Notepad++ is run instead.

Installation

  1. Compile NppLoader.exe (or use the already compiled executable).
  2. Move the loader into Notepad++'s installation directory.
  3. Check the path to the loader in the registry file.
  4. Apply the appropriate registry file.
  5. Enjoy Notepad++!
