    Install or Update  Notepad++ procedure is missing the writeFile statements on Line 8 and Line 18 before executeProceedure "ExecuteInstall", this will cause the install to fail, as the npp.exe is not actually copied to the agents working directory yet.

    All you have to do is copy and paste the lines from the else statements for each OS Type.
