I recently upgraded to Windows 10 and installed WinSCP (imported websites login information from the other computer) and Notepad++ (6.8, previously I used 5.6). I use WinSCP in combination with Notepad++ to edit files on a server that has a very short cutoff grace period for the FTP sessions. WinSCP has persistent FTP session (while NPP, a Notepad++ FTP add-in, seemingly does not) and can be integrated with Notepad++ using the function Edit with...->Notepad++.
Unfortunately, the two are not working well together in Windows 10. Now, after I open the file in Notepad++ from WinSCP, if I switch to WinSCP and then back to Notepad++, I get the following error message:
xxxx file does not exist anymore
Before, this error used to appear when I closed the FTP session in WinSCP before I closed the files that I opened in that session in Notepad++.
I searched the internet but could not find the solution. I tried to change the temporary directory and opened WinSCP admin. I found a thread in the WinSCP forum (http://winscp.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9548) regarding another user having the same problem with Notepad++ and WinSCP, but his question remained without an answer.
Update: What I tried to fix the issue.
- Set the 'Seconds between keepalives' to 15 (defaults is 30 secs): http://winscp.net/eng/docs/ui_login_connection.
- Authorized Notepad++ to run always with Administrator Permissions.
- Authorized WinSCP to run always with Administration Permissions.
- Configured compatibility mode for NotePad++ for Windows 8.1.
