Additions are done by mattesh(at)gmx.net to ensure function on all windows systems
including Windows 7. As well as adding the same to an installer program.
It's a little Notepad++ launcher which allows you to replace notepad.exe completely
by Notepad++. (Without need for removing anything from the windows system.)
NppLauncher make use of a debugger feature in Windows the system will call a hooked
process with appended parameters to allow debugging the intended application.
This hook application will be call whenever the correct application was resolved.
notepad.exe receives always only one parameter which is now just deferred to Notepad++.
Because notepad.exe is a blocking executable, also NppLauncher behaves blocking by
default. If you like to have it non-blocking just change the setting WaitForClose in
the registry. The blocked process will show either the first Notepad++ window and wait
until the file get closed or even Notepad++ closes.
