#116 Plugin Manager: Does not obey Windows settings


I'm using NPP on Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. It is set to use %APPDATA%. However, Plugin Manager does not recognize it.

If I put plugins in my APPDATA folder, they load correctly in NPP. When I bring up Plugin Manager, it does not show them as being installed. Also, if I choose to install anything, it puts them in the program Plugins folder. Because of this, I had to move all of my plugins to the program folder.

Before all of this, I had to re-install NPP into a generic folder instead of the protected "Program Files (x86)" folder. Otherwise, I'd have to run NPP as an Administrator for Plugin Manager to work.

I would like Plugin Manager to recognize the APPDATA setting so that I can properly organize NPP and its associated data.
