Load langs.xml Failed

From Notepad++ Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Sometimes Notepad++ would pop up a message stating it could not load this critical file.

This error usually results from the langs.xml file being truncated to 0 bytes. This seems to happen prevalently on laptops and in UAC-enabled systems, specially Win 7.

Notepad++ was fixed in version 6.1.7, so this issue should not appear on versions equal or greater than this. Upgrading older versions has plenty of other benefits as well.

Copying langs.model.xml as langs.xml (they are in %APPDATA%\Notepad++) has been reported to fix the issue.
