Hi Friend,

Your Problem is "Error creating process: nppcm.dll needs to be in the same directory than notepad++.exe" all you have to do my friend just download and install this Anti spyware software. I preferred to use this until now, what i am talking about is the iOBiT360 it is free but the work is impressive. And with a combination of Antivirus or Avira an Antivirus it is also free.

Then you are protected and error free.

When installing it just follow the wizard question and option choose rightfully. When you're done.

Don't forget to tell if i am right. And one thing for sure use iobit360 and apply Scan then there you go have it, your and error free.

Your problem was due to setting the prompt automatically for the administrative privileges via User account control.

By fixing this error, from the Notepad++ shortcut/executable remove the automatic UAC.

This is ok if you have at your desktop or menu the Notepad++.

This action restores the context menu option for work. Upon setting the above action you will do it manually every time you will check for the updates.
