Since a month, whenever I launched Notepad++, it was finding Plugin Manager updates and prompting me to update online. The updates were shown for both Plugin Manager and NppExec components (Refer the current and new version details below):
Available updates for Notepad++ Plugins
Everytime, I used to choose “YES” for online updates; it used to download the updates, show me progress bar and restart Notepad++.
Downloading Notepad++ Plugin updates
Strangely this used to happen regularly – I was wondering why is Notepad++ team releasing so frequent updates!!! When I digged into the problem, I came to know that my Updates where not getting applied on Windows 7 due to permission issues.
To fix this, you have to start Notepad++ as Administrator and then run Plugin Manager updates. It’s the similar problem with Notepad++ Updater, as I wrote in my last post. My existing Plugin Manger version (Plugins -> Plugin Manager -> About) is now having the latest version 0.9.3.1 released in February 2010:
Plugins -> Plugin Manager -> About
Hope this helps you to fix your problem.
Recently when I tried to Update Notepad++ online on Windows 7 Operating System, I received “The requested operation requires elevation.” error (Exception 1002). Such errors were not seen earlier on Windows XP Operating System.
Notepad++ Update Error
This error appears because Notepad++ needs Administrative rights in Windows 7/Vista. To fix this problem, start Notepad++ with Run as Administrator option and then try Update option.
Notepad++ - Run as Administrator
Notepad++ (latest version 5.6.8) is one of the most popular Open Source Text Editor, which is available freely for developers. Its very useful for Administrator permission to execute the Updater.

Yesterday evening, my Vista clock on bottom taskbar (notification area) stopped ticking (at 5:07pm). When I clicked the time, the Date/Time window opened, where the time was still ticking correctly. After performing a logoff and login operation, this problem was resolved. I am not sure what went wrong, is this a bug Microsoft is aware of? I am using Vista Ultimate SP1 on x86 platform.
While trying to safely remove USB Mass Storage Device, I am getting following error message in Vista Ultimate:
Problem Ejecting USB Mass Storage Device
Windows can’t stop your ‘Generic volume’ device because it is in use. Close any programs or windows that might be using the device, and then try again later.
Screenshot of same error:
I closed all Open programs, but the error still exists! How do I identify which process is using the USB drive?
Hope I get a solution soon. Keep watching this space….
If you are aware of this problem and solution, then please leave a comment for me here.
