[0.9.0] Executing with Notepad++ (nppexec)

Post by IMP1 » Sat Dec 28, 2013 2:40 pm

I used to run LÖVE stuff directly from notepad++ by executing the following (by use of the nppexec plugin):

Code: Select all

"C:\Program Files\LOVE\love.exe" "$(CURRENT_DIRECTORY)"
But since 0.9.0, this has stopped working. The bult-in console for NPP says:

Code: Select all

"C:\Program Files\LOVE\love.exe" "C:\Users\IMP1\Documents\LOVE games\multiplayer\server"
Process started >>>
(the first line of which being the code it's executing) but nothing happens.

But if I copy and paste exactly said first line (the one generated by npp) into the command line, it works. So I'm not sure whether the problem is with Notepad++ or 0.9.0

Add a "\" to the end

I use it like this:

Code: Select all

"C:\Program Files\LOVE\love.exe" "$(CURRENT_DIRECTORY)"

Add a "\" to what?

And the line you've given seems to be identical to the one I'm using... unless I'm being blind

Add a "\" to this, since it's a folder:

Code: Select all

"C:\Users\IMP1\Documents\LOVE games\multiplayer\server\"
notice the added \

Code: Select all

Okay, that still doesn't work.
And the command line doesn't need the ending backslash.
And it worked for previous versions of LOVE without the ending backslash.

Why don't you just use "$(CURRENT_DIRECTORY)"?

I am doing exactly as you describe and it works, are you sure that

Code: Select all

C:\Program Files\LOVE\love.exe
actually exists?

EDIT: Actually I don't quote $(CURRENT_DIRECTORY), maybe that makes a difference?

I think quoting $(CURRENT_DIRECTORY) makes a difference, I'm not sure.
