Yeah, Nitzan, you're rigth, my windows 7 is a 64bit version and I'd changed the octaverc file like this:
## Uncomment and change following line for your preferred editor
EDITOR('C:\\Arquivos de Programas (x86)\\Notepad++\\notepad++.exe');

But it didn't work even so!

I get the same answer when trying to edit a .m file.

octave:> edit teste.m

Well, the OS I'm working with is Windows 7.
I install the 3.6.1 and got the same weird thing.

This type of error appeared only after reinstalling Windows 7 and Octave.

So far it seems that no one can solve this problem.

Do you have any suggestions that would be effective, please?

Thanks in advance,

Please check whether your installed notepad++ is really on C:\Program Files\Notepad++\ (use windows explorer and try to locate this directory).
If your windows 7 is a 64bit version, it has probably has been installed to C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\
