When launching Notepad++ with a file URL, it never opens the file and instead opens with an empty document. Opening the same file URL in the File->Open dialog works. No error is reported.

Example:
notepad++.exe file://///192.64.38.56/Folder1/Folder2/MyTextFile.txt

To test, Use a path with the IP address of your local PC (you can get it with "ipconfig /all") substituted in the example above and a path to a text file.
