I'd say go with the UNICODE version at this point, since you have Vista.

Installation is easy, just unzip the DLL file into the plugins folder where you installed Notepad++.

Once you start Notepad++ after then do Plugins, Hex-Editor, Options to set font for hex display and other options.

thanks-

could you tell what this sentence means in layman terms
"Send all unicode messages to Notepad++ in unicode mode, but send ansi message to scintilla in both ANSI and UNICODE mode. "

Honestly, I can't shed a lot of light on that.  It really only applies though to people creating (programming) their own plugins, which I haven't done.

Scintilla is a component that handles much of the text editing chores for Notepad++. So it's a component that Notepad++ is built on top of, and it seems that statement you mentioned refers to considerations when building a plugin, and interacting with the Notepad++ components, versus the Scintilla components.

As far as which plugin to use, if you go into NPP and do ?, About, I'd recommend matching the ANSI versus UNICODE version of the plugin to the version of NPP that you are running.  For example, here's my About screen, showing I'm using the Unicode version of NPP (which at this point might be the only on, I'm not sure).
