As you may know, there is no native MSI installer for Notepad++ available from the developers. However, MSI installers are excellent for using with deployment systems such as Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager (MEMCM), MDT, and Group Policy.

We are happy to provide packaged MSI installers for Notepad++ and here you will find all the versions that we currently have available. We will do our best to keep up with the latest versions going forward so ensure you bookmark this page.

For future reference, all versions, old and new, will be available from this single pack, no having to go around searching for different versions. Just bear with us while we get everything uploaded and linked.

Most of the versions will only be for 64-bit Windows versions, which most are these days. We will not be packaging 32-bit versions.

The newer installers are completely clean, there are no adverts, no pop-ups, no redirections to our or any other website on either install, repair or uninstall. Just a nice clean MSI installer for Notepad++. However, some of our older installers may have a redirect on install completion so please test before pushing out to multiple devices. But, if you do find this to be the case, leave us a message in the comments section with the version and we will get this updated and any redirects removed.


Here you will find an ever-growing list of available Notepad++ MSI Installers, you can scroll through them all or use the search function. If there is a version missing that you would like us to add, please leave us a message in the comments section and we will get it packaged up and added when we can.

    MSI Switches

    To use any of these MSI installers, you can just double-click any of the MSI files to run manually, but you probably want to run it partially or fully silent using automation. To do this, you can use the following MSI switches:

    • /qb+! – automated installation, but will show the progress screen
    • /norestart – does not allow the installation to restart the end-user device
    • /q – Fully Silent with no dialog box

    Demonstration of the Install Process

    We have created a video to show the full download, extraction and installation process of our MSI installer which you can see below:

    Comments and Feedback

    If you have any requests or bugs to report to us, please just leave us a comment below and we will address it as soon as we can. We would love to hear from you as well if you are successfully using our MSI installers so we can see that we are helping!


    Why create this MSI installer for Notepad++

    The reason is that the developer of Notepad++ does not offer an MSI installer for it.

    How is it created?

    It is created using the zip extraction of the files required to run Notepad++. These files are direct from the developer and are safe.

    Are there any other versions?

    We have created some versions in the past, but our aim is to try and keep up to date from now on and release the MSI versions of the installers soon after the developer releases a new version of Notepad++

    Is the MSI installer safe?

    Yes. The MSI installer is completely safe. We have not added any ad wraps, viruses, malware, popups or redirects in the installer. You can see from the video demo that it is just a straightforward installation.

    Is there a x86 version?

    No. Most systems should really be running x64 operating systems these days, so it is not worth the effort to put in the work to create a 32-bit installer.

    1. Hello,

      My employer installed Notepad++ on my PC and I assume he used your MSI because the program is installed in a folder with the name of your site.

      My problem is that the rights management in my profile doesn’t allow me to modify items in the “Program files” folder, so I can’t set up the program.
      From memory, the standard installation doesn’t have this drawback.

      Why didn’t you use user-accessible folders to store program settings?

      You don’t have to tell me that I have to ask my employer to make my settings. He doesn’t have the time, and there are other disadvantages too, such as the fact that windows that open when you close them don’t reopen when you launch them…

      1. The MSI is for ease of install, not ease of changing settings. Every company has policies in place where users do not mess with settings. Two options, uninstall and re-install with the official EXE installer or log a call with your local IT to make the changes. Your companies IT policies are not under our control!
