I have Notepad++ portable "installed" and if I try to open a file from Windows Explorer that should open with Notepadd++ portable I get the error
Another instance of Notepad++ is already running. Please close other instances of Notepad++ before launching Notepad++ portable.
My problem is I don't want to open a separate instance, I want the file to open with the existing instance.
I found a blog post on how to get around this issue by opening multiple instances http://mattrefghi.com/blog/2010/11/how-to-launch-multiple-instances-of-notepad/ but like I said, I'd prefer the file to open in my currently running Notepad++ window
I am able to drag & drop the file in the existing window and it works, but double clicking won't open the file.
Anyone know a trick to make this work?
