Hello,

Every time I open a file in Notepad++ from the remotedirectory in WinScp, I get the message "current local directory\411 doesn't exist. Create it?"

- Why does WinScp this file to be there and what is the purpose of it?
- Is there maybe a possibility for not needing this file?

Regards,

Jeroen Bos

Can you post a screenshot of the message?

Just a wild guess: Doesn't you have this directory misconfigured here?

It somehow has to something with how Notepad++ is opened.

I came across this article: git - -w doesn't exist. Create it? - Stack Overflow

So it seems like WinScp is sending some extra information to the command line for Notepad++ to open.

I have found the problem. The editor preference was wrong.

The "external editor" line said:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe" 411 !.!

Changing it to:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe" !.!

solved the problem.

Do you have any idea where did the 411 came from?
