HM NIS Edit software get's freeze

I am distributing my software by wrapping the application exe in NSIS installation wizard. I use HM NIS edit software for editing the NSIS scripts. I recently got my editor frozen when I hovered on the default functions of NSIS like 'SetCompressor', 'BrandingText' etc. This is happening only in one system regardless of user. I tried to recreate the error but failed to do so.
The error occurred on the system with windows 7 professional OS, NSIS version 2.45, HM NIS edit version 2.0.3.
I re-installed the NSIS and HM NIS edit software but still the editor gets frozen when hovered. I searched on the internet about it but found no such error. I also compared the installed files against the installed files without error but found no difference. I used beyond compare tool to compare the file. So by this I concluded that there is no file corruption.
Please help me to solve this error.

This is a bug in a 3rd-party application, report it in the appropriate place: https://sourceforge.net/p/hmne/bugs/

Posting the same thing here and on Stackoverflow does not really help, it is just annoying because I have to answer twice :/

Only as an additional hint, HM NIS seems to be abandoned. There is no newer version since 2005!

You are using really old and deprecated software (10 years old without any update for newest NSIS and newest Windows 7/8/10). There will be probably no answer for you issue as the project was stopped.

Please try Visual & Installer (http://www.visual-installer.com) - NSIS extension for Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 - 2017

or RAD & Installer (http://www.rad-installer.com) - NSIS expert for Embarcadero RAD Studio (Delphi/C++ Builder) 2009 - 10.2 Tokyo.

These tools have latest NSIS syntax so the freezing is not occurring. Creating NSIS scripts with them is much easier, they offer many modern features like syntax highlighting, code completion and many more that helps to write your script and they are always up-to-date.

If you have any problems feel free to ask here or contact me (I am developer).

What about Notepad++ on Windows and Gedit on Linux? I still use HM NIS Edit just because of the syntax highlighting.
