Python Question

Emmet - Notepad++ "Unknown exception"

Every time I'm trying to use Emmet's

it gives me errors. First a pop up with
Unknown Exception
and then another pop up with
python script plugin did not accept the script

I tried reinstalling Notepad++ but that didn't help.

I'm running Windows 8 x64 & Notepad++ 6.6.9. This is the first time I'm using Emmet, after recently used the old Zen Coding. (Which works flawlessly.)

I have python 2.7 installed, if that necessary too.

Answer Source

I had the same problem as you. This is the solution which worked for me:

Basically, the problem lies in the Python script plugin which will be automatically installed with emmet.

Go to this link:
and download PythonScript_full_0.9.2.0 package.

Replace Notepad++'s Python package with PythonScript_full_0.9.2.0 and unpack the archive in Notepad++'s MAIN directory. (This is where notepad.exe is.)
(Do NOT unpack the archive inside the plugins directory. That will not work. The python27.dll file needs to be in the same directory where notepad++.exe is.)

I am using notepad++ v6.6.9 and it works now.
