I seem to have this problem that when I open notepad++ it shows the updates available and when I select them to update a dialog box appears saying that updates failed.

I am running windows 7 with notepad++ latest version. Does anyone have a solution to this problem.

are you sure your network is ok? – onemach Jan 17 '12 at 11:04

For me, Notepad++ is updating fine here. As @onemach says check your network settings, also perhaps the Notepad++ update servers were offline when it was downloading the update(s). Alternatively, download the latest installer from the Notepad++ website. It has to be said there have been updater problems in the past;
