Not sure; but the double quotes will clearly upset the parser. Could you try changing the setting in the GUI (Tools->Options->Advanced) with

'C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe' %s

(note the single quotes around the executable), then File->Save options as default?

Restore all options actually deletes that file.
