wampmanager ignores .ini default program setting

In wampmanager under win10, clicking on PHP->php.ini loads NotePad rather than the default editor for .ini files.

How do I persuade it to obey the setting?

Oy, it's a simple question.

Version: wampserver2.5-Apache-2.4.9-Mysql-5.6.17-php5.5.12-64b. Icon is green, hosts file is correct, localhost works, phpMyAdmin runs but is not yet configured (I use it seldom, prefer other tools), antivirus is Windows Defender, installation is c:\wamp.

I found an item for specifying the text editor in wampmanager.conf, but changing it had no effect, do I have to restart the machine for this effect to take effect?

Hi,

- Quit Wampserver.
Edit the file wamp/wampmanager.conf
Replace:
editor = "notepad.exe"
By (for example):
;Path of the Text Editor used by Wampserver
;May be modfied with the absolute path of the Text Editor exe file
;(Use / instead of \)
editor ="J:/Util/Texte/Notepad++/notepad++.exe"
Launch Wampserver.

If you want to do it without stopping Wampserver, it is possible, but after editing the file wampmanager.conf will require "refresh":
Right-Clic on Wampmanager Icon then Refresh.
