  2. Thx, notepad++ community version does not have Manager plugin longer, this make this guideline helpful. Hence it matters if it is versin 64bit or 32bit. 😉

  3. Notepad++ v 7.5.9, installed the ComparePlugin2.0.0,but the plugin not be shown on plugin menu. Why this happen?

  4. I found this at https://github.com/pnedev/compare-plugin and it works.

    Notepad++ 7.6.3 and above:

    Create ComparePlugin folder in Notepad++’s plugins installation folder (%Notepad++_program_folder%\Plugins).
    Copy the contents of the Latest Release zip file into the newly created folder. Please use the correct archive version based on your Notepad++ architecture – x86 or x64.

    Restart Notepad++.
