What is good is that CudaText has text/raw/hex viewer - from the Universal Viewer app. For files which cannot be edited [huge files]. It can viewer, like Universal Viewer, files of any size, e.g. 4Gb. But not edit, only view.

Well, actually, the files from C++ runtime are really, there. Your missing DLLs api-ms-win-crt-runtime-* are indirect system dependencies which are not directly referenced by Textilosaurus binary, it seems these files can be installed with installing this: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2999226/update-for-universal-c-runtime-in-windows

So it seems that your operating system is not fully up-to-date. These DLLs cannot be re-distributed with textilosaurus.exe, the only way for me could be to package runtime installers into Textilosaurus installer, but that is not really good because some users install portable Textilosaurus from zip package instead, thus, this is not a solution for them.

What do you think? I thought I could use different toolchain (mingw) to build the app for windows, but unfortunately, it is only available for x86 platform which is bad, since I prefer to deploy x64 binaries.

Well, you're right - my system is not up to date and I am not able to install the update, because my Win 8.1 is one of those that refused to install the big ("8.2") update. No problem, for most other users Textilosaurus will work fine.

I am glad that the developer switched to a better versioning scheme.

Not stealth anymore, creates 'AppData/Local/Notepad++' folder.

Special on 2017-08-30 23:17

So in the 7.5.1 changelog it says it fixed the above 'AppData/Local/Notepad++' folder bug, but I'm still getting them, can anyone else confirm?

Download keeps failing. Been like this for awhile for me.

hamasaki on 2018-08-27 01:14

Forget last comment, working ok now.

The latest version (v5.2.1) produces an exeption and refuses to start on my machine (Win 8.1 x64 without .NET & VC++ runtimes). Perhaps the system requirements changed? Nothing mentioned in the changelog.

@hamasaki
Opening the download page of EmEditor automatically starts downloading the installers (x32 or x64 depending on user's system). I added direct download links to portable versions.

@smaragdus: my fault, thanks for fixing that
