    Hello,
    I've NPPP (UNICODE) v5.6.8, I've downloaded CSSExplorer.2.0.2.UNICODE.BIN, installed CSS and copied the .dll file in the plugin directory.
    I've the CSS icon in the toolbar, but when I click the button, while a css file is opened, I've a message error : "Sorry, can't creat simulation files".
    Can you help me, because this plugin seems to me very useful.
    Thanks

    Hi,
    Our plug-in creates simulation "css" file - "designSimulation.css" in the folder of notepad++.
    Therefore if this folder is "read only" folder, "designSimulation.css" file can't be updated or to be created..

    Our solution:

    Right click on the main folder of notepad++ ("Notepad++")  => remove the attribute read-only
    => select "apply changes to this folder, subfolders and subfiles"  => ok.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your reply but i can't remove the attribute read-only even with MS-DOS command.
    I've removed too the UAC => if I have no longer the error message, the CSS-explorer window in Notepad++ is empty.

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi.

    First I had the same problem, but I was told to install notepad++ as administrator and to run it as administrator - so I do not have the problem that it can't write the designSimulation.* files. But the plugin still has an empty window… so I can't use the plugin :-(…..

    Hi,

    We are working on a new version of CSS-eXplorer.

    Updates soon.
