Empty langs.xml in Notepad++

For the last few weeks I’ve had a problem with Notepad++. Whenever I would open the program I would get an error saying ‘load langs.xml failed’. After clicking OK it open and function fine. My operating system is Windows 7 64bit. The langs.xml file is located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++.

When I looked at langs.xml it was 0 bytes, there was no information in it. After a Google search I found this site which stated to rebuild the langs.xml with the langs.model.xml file found in the same directory. This fixed the issue. It appears to be an issue affecting 64 bit versions of windows.

As a side note I would recommend all administrators looking at Notepad++. The program is a quite powerful replacement for windows notepad. It is especially helpful for scripting and viewing certain types of logs.
