On Npp application startup, a "Unknown exception" popup is displayed. Npp seems to behave normally after closing the dialog.

I was previously running v6.3.2 in both Windows 7 Pro and Windows 8.1 environments. Both environments ran fine. I recently upgraded to v6.5.5 and now my Win7 environment pops the "Unknown exception" dialog, while my Win8 environment runs fine.

I uninstalled all instances of Npp on my Win7 machine and then re-installed the v6.5.5 version, and the condition persists.

Plugins installed:
CScriptNpp.dll
docMonitor.unicode.dll
DSpellCheck.dll
HTMLTag_unicode.dll
JSLintNpp.dll
JSMinNPP.dll
mimeTools.dll
NppConverter.dll
NppExport.dll
NppFTP.dll
NPPJSONViewer.dll
PluginManager.dll
XMLTools.dll

    Can confirm exception on Windows 7 x64 with Notepad++ v6.5.5 Unicode.

    The problem seems to be the plugin nppftp and its config file Certificates.xml.
    After connecting to a FTP site with FTPES and accepting the unknown certificate and restarting Notepad++ the exception occurs.

    Removing Certificates.xml or nppftp.dll results in starting Notepad++ correctly.
