Wrapping notepad++ issues

I have been asked to supply a deploy-able version of Notepad++. I am running into problems when I am trying to call on the custom functions of PSADT.


The running process for Notepad++ is "notepad++.exe"

I assume that since the + is a special character in PS this is causing me issues.
Show-InstallationWelcome -CloseApps "notepad++" -silent
responds with: "Bad argument to operator '-match': parsing "notepad++" - Nested quantifier +,,()"

While
"Stop-Process -processname "notepad++" 
works just fine

Also since I created an MSI that turns off updating I would have like to use the
Remove-MSIApplications "notepad++"
I get the same error: "Bad argument to operator '-match': parsing "notepad++" - Nested quantifier +,,()"

I am pretty new to PS so if you have any advice it would be appreciated.

I've just pushed a fix to source for this. Can you test it out and make sure it works as expected? Works on my end, and doesn't seem to break anything :)

Closing the running processes works now but I still get the same message when trying to use the Remove-MSIApplications cmdlet.

Pushed a new version. Should work now. Can you test again? Thanks

Sorry for the delay. I just tested it and everything went through cleanly. Thanks for the fast turnaround!
