E354: Invalid register name: '+'
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in one<module>
  File "<string>", line 45, in codepadRun

:help E354 leads to the registers topic, where you can read about the '+' register:

7. Selection and drop registers "*, "+ and "~ Use these registers for storing and retrieving the selected text for the GUI. See |quotestar| and |quoteplus|. When the clipboard is not available or not working, the unnamed register is used instead. For Unix systems the clipboard is only available when the |+xterm_clipboard| feature is present. {not in Vi}

My guess is that you do not have +xterm_clipboard compiled into your Vim, or at least +clipboard on non-Unix systems. --Fritzophrenic 13:27, October 21, 2010 (UTC)

Commenting out the '+' and '*' lines fixes the problem for me, like in this paste: ~Neels
