comment Can we have both Direct X9 and 11 on the same Windows 7 system?
I agree installers should detect this. But some don't. I had the same and now I'm concerned my installation is compromised.

By the way, a hex editor does nothing special in terms of file access. If you can read a file, you can read all bytes. You can interpret these as encoded characters (as done by text editors) or you can simply show the raw bytes (as done by hex editors).

Nope. Already checked it as I explained in my question. As a second check I added full control for "Everyone" to the whole Notepad++ subtree. Makes no difference.

comment Notepad++ with HexEdit won't run in Windows 7
Letting all users run Notepad++ as administrators seems like a bad idea to me, but maybe I don't see it right. It seems to me that everyone would for example be able to browse the file system as an administrator through the "Open file" dialog. Not something I want. Is there an alternative you can think of?

Thanks. To be clear: my "power user" is not in the admin group. That was the whole point. I did grant the power users group almost the same rights as admins in the "Local Security Policy".
