Here is the Duality xml.  I couldn't even find the editor tag in it.

I presume you use a shortcut to open your mill profile? If you do can you right click it and select properties then tell me what the target is, that will let me know which xml is being used.

I want to express many thanks to Hood for his attention yesterday. I am getting further but still unable to change the editor used in the OEM Tormach build.

I have observed that PCNC does actually bring up notepad++ with my code in it one time after a complete cold start. It does not after that first time.  I loose my code and have to reload it. I have also noticed I can start notepad++ from the command prompt once after a cold start but I am unable to run it a second time after closing.  If I close it then enter the same path command it does not open.

Clearly this is a Windows7/notepad++ issue.  It would be so easy to resolve if I could change my editor.

Bit of  a long shot but what if you copy notepad.exe form the system32 folder and place in your pcnc folder and use the xml that I changed to open notepad?
