Load langs.xml failed! in Notepad++

I got Notepad++ 5.7 installed in Windows 7 Professional, used to work nicely but lately I am getting the following error:

Load langs.xml failed!

One reason could be that lang.xml got corrupted. This is not unexpected as Windows 7 I am using tends to hang-up and I need to force a hard reboot.

One way to fix this is to:
1) Navigate to C:\Program Files\Notepad++.
2) Rename lang.xml to lang.xml.1.
3) Copy lang.model.xml to lang.xml

Enjoy!
