When I try to add a Link to a sub-folder, Notepad++ hangs with the Favorites dialog still displayed.
Path to recreate:
1) Create a new sub-group under
2) Click on the Link Current file icon
3) In the details pane, double click on to show the sub-group.
4) Click Ok, and Notepad++ hangs.
Using Windows XP Pro SP3, Notepad++ v5.8.6, Explorer 1.8.2
I had a similar problem and was able to fix it by reinstalling the C++ 2008 redistributable from Microsoft.
