PRODUCT ADVISORY

SYNERGI™ PIPELINE SIMULATOR 10.5


AND 10.6
Issue

April 2019

This Product Advisory summarizes an issue with SPS versions 10.5 and 10.6 regarding the way
the Notepad++ text editor handles SPS custom plugins.
NOTE: This issue occurs if you are using SPS 10.5 or 10.6 with Notepad++ 7.6 or later.

ISSUE
SPS provides three custom plugin customizations that optionally add Notepad++ plugin
support, enabling you to more easily build SPS commands and command logic in Intran editing
files.
Previously, in order for Notepad++ to discover and load a custom plugin, the plugin DLLs only
needed to be copied to the “plugins” folder in the Notepad++ install area. Currently, this is
handled by a DNV GL batch file that copies the three custom DLLs to the “plugins” folder.
Beginning with Notepad++ 7.6, however, Notepad++ changed the way custom plugins (plugins
not distributed by Notepad++) are discovered and handled, so that custom plugins copied to
the “plugins” folder are no longer automatically loaded into the Plugins menu by Notepad++.
Instead, use the following workaround to enable custom plugins for Notepad++.

To enable custom plugins for Notepad++


1. Copy the custom plugin DLLs to the Notepad++ install area (either manually or with the
batch file). See the Enabling Notepad++ Customizations topic in the SPS Online Help
for instructions.
2. Navigate to your Notepad++ installation directory (usually, this is \\Program Files
(x86)\Notepad++\plugins), and verify that the following custom plugins are present:
- NppPluginSpsADL.dll
- NppPluginSpsCommands.dll
- NppPluginSpsOther.dll

3. Create and name a folder after each DLL, and then move each DLL into its respective
folder, as shown below:
NOTE: Local Administrator Rights may be required to create folders and move files in
your Notepad++ installation directory.

4. Launch Notepad++.
5. Open an Intran file, and then select the Plugins menu.
The SPS custom plugins menus are now available.
