Notepad++ likes to have admin privilages.
Very annoying. Specially a stopper if you are not admin.
The problem comes from the auto-update option.
If turned on, NPP v4.7.5 uses CreateProcess API to launch GUP.EXE which requires elevation.
How do you turn the auto-update option off?
Using version 4.7.5. Cannot find anywhere in Preferences and Menu. Am I blind??
Also true if you need to modify hosts file in windows/system32/drivers/etc. Can't save changes if not in admin mode.
