      It's a good news to see the new version of Hex-Editor.  But When I click the icon "H" in Notepad++ 5.1.1,
      the Notepad++ is terminated without any message.

      Yes =) Thanx for the new version.

      It works great, but when I started the PlugIn first time, I got an error too. But now it's working ^^ (N++ 5.1)

      So good UNICODE plugins are coming. Thanks Jens!

      However, hexview is crashing N++ 5.1.1 for me.
      Tried to remove/add again, but any time I press 'H' toolbar button, N++ crashes.
      I can see hexview for the split of second before crash.

      this are bad news. For me there are no issues like this. And because of felidaex message it think removing of the old HexEditor.ini file from plugins config directory my help.
      Please try and let me know if this helps.

      Best Regards

      I have the same crash issue as Veljko.
      As soon as I press the H toolbar button I get the HexEditor screen for a quarter of a second and N++ crashes. No crash dialog reporting information.

      I tried deleting the hexeditor.ini file.
      This happens if there are no other plug-ins.
      If I delete N++ config.xml HexEditor works - so there is some conflict here I suggest.
      I can e-mail you the config.xml file if it helps.

      Veljko: Can you confirm this - delete (or temporarily rename) the config.xml and see if HexEditor works?

      System is XP Professional SP3 up-to-date

      Thank you for your new version first, Jens.
      I tried to avoid the bug mentioned above, and all I did were clear the history list of files.
      It's OK for me.
      I don't know if this is helpful.

      I unistall N++ then reinstall it.  Hex Editor works!

        Maybe because you create a new config.xml file.

      First, thank you for this work, Jens.

      I confirm: on a NPP freshly updated in 5.1.1, which did not have the Hexa plugin before, empty the history of previously opened files before plugin installation (copy of the dll in the plugin directory) removes any problem, even at the first launch.

      Hi all

      Yes, good news is after renaming config.xml I could start Hex-Editor.
      But there is also bad news. After having in history file opened with FTP plugin (C:\Program Files\Notepad++\plugins\FTP_synchronize\os3.ca@os3.ca\.htaccess), bug came out again. Removing only this file from history, make Hex-Editor happy again.
      So, is there a problem with "@" or "_" in filename in history?

      Hi all

      I checked out the code in the CVS repository and found that when extracting string of menu item, expressions like
      ::GetMenuString(hMenuItem, nPos, menuItem.szName, sizeof(menuItem.szName), MF_BYPOSITION);
      are still used. The buffer length parameter should be sizeof(menuItem.szName)/sizeof(TCHAR) in the Unicode build, or there would be a problem when the item string is too long, like a long entry in the recent file list.
