Q. How to disable backup files?
A. On 'Files' page of the Preferences dialog box, please turn off 'Create backup file when saving' option.
Q. I lost my previous settings after upgrade.
A. You did not install the previous version correctly. In this case, please run the 'Tools'->'Set Directories' menu option and specify the directory where your previous settings (*.ini files) are located.
Q. How to compile and run Java or C/C++ files?
A. You can setup the Java compiler or C/C++ compiler on 'User tools' page of Preferences dialog box. Please press 'Add Tool'->'Program' button and try to set the options like this: Example 1. Java Compiler

Menu text: Java Compiler
Command: c:\java\bin\javac.exe
Argument: "$(FilePath)"
Initial directory: $(FileDir)
Capture output: ON

Example 2. Turbo C 2.01

Menu text: Turbo C
Command: c:\tc\tcc.exe
Argument: -Ic:\tc\include -Lc:\tc\lib -n$(FileDir) $(FilePath)
Initial directory: c:\tc
Capture output: ON

Example 3. Borland C++ 5.5

Menu text: Borland C
Command: c:\bc\bin\bcc32.exe
Argument: -Ic:\bc\include -Lc:\bc\lib -n$(FileDir) $(FilePath)
Initial directory: c:\bc\bin
Capture output: ON

Example 4. Visual C++

Menu text: Visual C++
Command: c:\msdev\vc98\bin\cl.exe
Argument: "$(FilePath)"
Initial directory: $(FileDir)
Capture output: ON

The above settings must be replaced with the actual path of the Java compiler or C/C++ compiler on your system.

After the setting is completed, you can run the command on 'Tools' menu, and the result will be shown in the Output Window at the bottom. You can also run the tool through the shortcut key (Ctrl + 0-9) or thought the icons on the 'User toolbar'.

To run the compiled Java class file, you can set the options like this:

Menu text: Java
Command: c:\java\bin\java.exe
Argument: $(FileNameNoExt)
Initial directory: $(FileDir)

The 'Command' field should be replaced with the actual path of the Java interpreter.

To run the compiled *.exe file, you can set the options like this:

Menu text: Run
Command: $(FileNameNoExt)
Initial directory: $(FileDir)
Q. How to add custom stx, acp and ctl files?
A. To add *.STX or *.ACP file:

1. select 'Settings & syntax' page on the Preferences dialog box.

2. Select desired file type or press Add button if you cannot find any. When you add a new file type, enter the file extension on the 'File extension' field.

3. Enter the full path of the STX and ACP file on the 'Syntax file' and 'Auto completion' field.

To add a *.CTL file:

*.CTL file is 'cliptext' file which you can use in the Cliptext Window. To add a *.CTL file, copy it to the Syntax Directory (see 'Tools'->'Set Directories') and restart EditPlus. If the cliptext window is hidden, you can use 'Cliptext Window' command on 'View' menu to show it at the left side of the main window.
Q. Why "WINOLDAP" remains after some 16-bit user tools exit?
After some 16-bit user tools exit, you may notice that "WINOLDAP" process is still running. This is because WINOLDAP is not being automatically closed when it finishes. In order to remedy this you need to modify the DOS box properties for CONAGENT.EXE, CONAGENT.PIF, or _DEFAULT.PIF (probably in \windows).

1. Start Explorer.
2. Locate one of the above files in the \windows\system directory.
3. When over the file click the right mouse button.
4. Choose 'Properties' from the speed menu.
5. Choose the 'Program' tab.
6. Turn on the 'Close on exit' option.
Q. Does EditPlus support file comparison feature?
No, EditPlus does not support file comparison feature. But you can run external application as user tool with $(WindowList) argument.


Command: WinDiff.exe
Argument: $(WindowList)
Q. Does EditPlus support silent install?
Yes. For example, you can install version 3.20 silently with the following command line.

epp320.exe -s -sp-s
