If you run MS Windows 7 and just installed Notepad++ you will recognize a problem later. You run NPPFtp and try to create a FTP profile. Whether changes to "profile settings" or "general settings" will be lost. Because when you dont run Npp as administrator, NPP will not have rights to create that profile files. But you will not get feedback, error messages etc. Therefore run Npp as administrator firstime and later as normal user. Run as admin when u need profile changes or add a new ftp/ssh server etc.
