How to deal with update failures of EmEditor (after upgrading to Windows 10)

We recently receive many questions regarding update failures of EmEditor after upgrading to Windows 10.
If you get the following dialog box while trying to update EmEditor:
“The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removal disk that is not available. Insert the ‘EmEditor Professional (…)’ disk and click OK.”
First, locate the installer of the previous version. The previous versions of EmEditor can be found in one of the C:\ProgramData\Emurasoft\EmEditor\updates\update… folders.
Extract the installer with the “/extract” option. For example, if the installer is “emed64_14.3.1.exe”, you would run Command Prompt, and type:
CD "C:\ProgramData\Emurasoft\EmEditor\updates\update…"
emed64_14.3.1.exe /extract
This will create a sub folder with file contents. Inside the folder, you will find a file with the file extension “.msi”, in this case “emed64_14.3.1.msi“.
When you uninstall, if you see the above dialog box, click the Browse button, and specify the above .msi file. Continue the process, and you should be able to uninstall the previous version.

Notes on using EmEditor on Windows 10

1. On Windows 10, when the View Source by EmEditor on Internet Explorer option is enabled (it is enabled by default), selecting “View Source” from the right-click menu on Microsoft Edge might not actually display the source code. Moreover, right-clicking Microsoft Edge again might not bring up the menu, and the Microsoft Edge window might become unresponsive.  This is considered a bug of Microsoft Edge or Windows 10.

To resolve this issue, go to Customize on the Tools menu of EmEditor, select the Shortcut tab, and clear the View Source by EmEditor on Internet Explorer check box.  If you have installed the latest version of EmEditor (v15.2), EmEditor will automatically detect Windows 10 and prompt you to disable this option.

More information: This issue appears not only when using EmEditor, but any other text editors that replace Internet Explorer source viewer.  To be more precise, if a path to a text editor exists as the default value of the registry:

SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\View Source Editor\Editor Name

under HKEY_CURRENT_USER or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, Microsoft Edge will not be able to display the source view in any windows and will become unresponsive.

2. When you run the “Record All Activities” command, Windows become unresponsive as soon as the macro recording starts. In this case, pressing CTRL + ESC or CTRL + ALT + DELETE will make Windows responsive again, but the macro recording will be aborted.  On Windows 10, please use the “Record All Except Mouse/Keyboard Activities” command instead.  The latest version of EmEditor (v15.2) will prompt whether you are sure to continue if you select the “Record All Activities” command.

More information: This issue appears when the SetWindowsHookEx function of Win32 API is called with the WH_JOURNALRECORD flag.

3. The following commands:

The Cascade, Tile Horizontally, and Tile Vertically commands
– The Compare and Synchronize commands

might not work as expected if you use the new Task View feature of Windows 10 to create multiple virtual desktops, and multiple EmEditor group windows exist separately over different virtual desktops. EmEditor would behave as if all of EmEditor group windows existed in the same virtual desktop. For example, when there are two EmEditor group windows which exist at different virtual desktops, if you select the Tile Horizontally command, only one EmEditor group window appears on the upper half of the current virtual desktop while the other EmEditor group window appears on the lower half of the other virtual desktop.

This issue has been resolved on EmEditor v15.2. Please install and use the latest versions of EmEditor that more fully support Windows 10.

Previous versions of EmEditor do not consider the possibility where EmEditor windows exist at different virtual desktops on Windows 10.

Previous versions of EmEditor do not consider the possibility where EmEditor windows exist at different virtual desktops on Windows 10.

For more details, please see EmEditor v15.2 New Features.

This post is based on the current version of Windows 10.  Future updates of Windows 10 might behave differently and resolve these issues.

The Customize Menus dialog box becomes resizable.

EmEditor v15.2.0 released!

Today, we are releasing EmEditor v15.2.0.

Updates from v15.1.7 include:

New General Features

  • Greatly improved the execution speed of Replace All while selecting a column of a CSV document, deleting vertical selection, and Undo after Replace All.
  • You can now select CSV columns, and drag and drop columns to reorder or copy columns.
  • You can now detect invalid double quotes in CSV documents.
  • Help can be viewed in a browser from the Internet. You can still choose to view the local help file (Preference sub menu on the Help menu). The Help file will not be included in the installer. It can be installed separately.
  • The Consolas (11 point) becomes the default font for many font categories where they used to be Courier New (10 point).
  • In the Tab tab of the Customize dialog box, the New Window for New File, otherwise New Tab becomes the default.

  • The Cascade, Tile Horizontally, Tile Vertically, Compare and Synchronize commands can now realize the virtual desktops created by Task View, one of new features of Windows 10. For example, in previous versions of EmEditor, when there are two EmEditor group windows which exist at different virtual desktops, if you select the Tile Vertically command, only one EmEditor group window appears on the left half of the current virtual desktop while the other EmEditor group window appears on the right half of the other virtual desktop. The new version of EmEditor can arrange windows only on the current virtual desktop.
  • The Record Mouse Activities and Keyboard Input to Other Applications check box became disabled when installed per user. When installed per computer, the "This feature (recording mouse activities and keyboard input to other applications) might not work under some versions of Windows and security settings. This feature might not be supported in future versions of EmEditor." message now appears.
  • On Windows 10, when the View Source by EmEditor on Internet Explorer option is enabled, the "The View Source by EmEditor on Internet Explorer feature might have a conflict with Microsoft Edge. If you continue, and if you try to right-click on Microsoft Edge and select View Source, no window might appear. Please select Cancel to turn off this feature." message now appears.

New Options

  • Repeat the first line as header check box was added to the Header and footer page of the Split Current Document into Several Files wizard.
  • The Adjust Separator Positions Automatically check box was added to the CSV tab of the Customize dialog box.

New Commands

  • Web Help
  • Local Help

Macro New Features

Please see EmEditor v15.2 New Features for details.

To update, you can select Check for Updates on the Help, or you can go to the download page to download the newest version.

This version is available free if you have a lifetime license or if your maintenance plan is valid as of July 30, 2015. Your registration keys might be found in the Emurasoft Customer Center. The registration key for v15 is the same as the key for v14.

We have confirmed EmEditor works with Windows 10

We have tested the current latest version of EmEditor (v15.1.7 or later) on Windows 10 Insider Preview, and confirmed EmEditor works with Windows 10. However,

– The Cascade, Tile Horizontally, and Tile Vertically commands
– The Compare and Synchronize commands

might not work as expected if you use the new Task View feature of Windows 10 to create multiple virtual desktops, and multiple EmEditor group windows exist separately over different virtual desktops. EmEditor will behave as if all of EmEditor group windows existed in the same virtual desktop. For example, when there are two EmEditor group windows which exist at different virtual desktops, if you select the Tile Horizontally command, only one EmEditor group window appears on the upper half of the current virtual desktop while the other EmEditor group window appears on the lower half of the other virtual desktop. We are planning to address this issue in future versions of EmEditor.
