Standard windows user tried to install plugin then gets perpetual Plugin Manager warning afterwards

    I tried to install a Notepad++ plugin via Plugin Manager as a Standard (i.e., non Administrative) user on a PC in my domain.

    However, Standard users are not allowed to install software in our domain.

    So I logged in as an Administrative user and installed the plugins via the Plugin Manager.

    All good, EXCEPT now every time I start Notepad++ as that Standard user I get the warning from the Plugin Manager:

    "There are still some pending actions to complete installing or removing some plugins. Would you like to do these now (Notepad++ will be restarted)? Yes No"

    No matter what I answer, I get this every time I launch Notepad++ as a non-standard user.

    How can I clear the Plugin Manager queue, so to speak -- to eliminate this message?

    Removed the following file and folder

    from this folder:

    And all is fine now.

    I am also getting this error message when trying to update the plugin manager from 1.0.8 to 1.3.5. It is a perpetual loop where it says that there are still pending actions and Notepad++ needs to restart. I tried deleting the files above, however it still says that the installed version is 1.0.8
