Here is Some notes on Installing mapy with Notepad++

Thanks Patrick Corwin for useful information.

  • Download and install latest version of mapy.
  • Add your mapy installation folder to system path.
  • Add this line to your userSetup.mel:
  • commandPort -eo -n ":2255";

                 *Add it to the end of userSetup.mel.

*Install Notepad++ v 4.6 or higher .

  • Go to "Run->Run..."
  • Add the path to mapy and surround it with quotes if needed as well as "$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)".  Here is most likely what you will enter, including quotes:

"C:\Program Files\\mapy\mapy.exe" "$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)"

  • NOTE:  If the shortcut gets messed up, the way to edit them (as of this writing) is enter %APPDATA%\Notepad++ into Windows' Run dialog.  It will take you to a folder that contains shortcuts.xml where you can edit or remove entries.


    Maya Shelf:
