Description of the Issue

I noticed a second issue with the v7.3.3 release..
.\updater\gpup.exe v1.3.5.0 285,872 Bytes is crashing.

included with the (x86) .zip archived version is malfunctioning
it caused a NP++ crash every time when trying to update a couple of
addons..

I had to copy the gpup.exe from my installed NP++ v7.3.3
to my portable copy of NP++ on my USB flash drive..
that worked ie no crashing...
working copy .\updater\gpup.exe v1.4.3 272,896 Bytes

please look into this further for both x86 and x64
portable builds...

also I use the updated Plugin Manager v1.4.3 (x86) as well...

Steps to Reproduce the Issue

n/a

Expected Behavior

gpup.exe should run updating plugins no issues.

so the gpup.exe included with the x86 portable build of NP++
needs to be updated.

Actual Behavior

see above description.

Current version with various fixes and x64 support is https://github.com/bruderstein/nppPluginManager/releases/tag/v1.4.9, but will probably not be bundled with N++ anymore, according to donho.

yeah I know, I grabbed the updated Plugin Manager manually since I have it bookmarked..

but... NOT bundled? why on earth would he do that for? its one of NP++ most important things.... :/
it would throw a lot of people a curve ball I guess... and make updating much harder except for auto updates...

bump... :/

See https://notepad-plus-plus.org/community/topic/14315/notepad-7-5-release, PluginManager is no longer part of N++. https://github.com/bruderstein/nppPluginManager/issues is the place to report the problem.

now and moving forward.. anyway
but I POSTED HERE because it was part of or at least bundled with NP++..
as I already mentioned above.. This was an issue with the gpup.exe,
included with the portable/archived version of NP++....

so it might not be relevant anymore...
