    When installing Notepad++ v5.9, I am getting error "Error opening file for writing: C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\SciLexer.dll"

    There is no other Notepad++ running.  This is 1st time install.  My OS is Windows 7 64 bits.

    Thanks in advance for your help…

    If the task ùanager tells you for sure that no other Notepad++.exe under a different user is running, then you have a permission problem. Installing outside C:\Program Files should fix.
