    Using the right click context menu, or from the command line, notepad++
    v6.6.3 will not open files from a windows network drive.

    If Z is mapped to some network drive:
    From cmd.exe in windows:

    "c:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe"
    "z:\somefolder\somefile.txt" will not work. Notepad++ opens, but does
    not open the file.
    "c:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe"
    "c:\localfolder\localfile.txt" does work as expected. Both from the
    command line and from the right click "open with" menu.

    Is this a bug or do I need to do something differently to open network
    files?

     
  • What happens if you use the network path instead, that is, \\server\somefolder\somefile.txt?
