When commenting out a line of C++ code, the syntax highlighter sometimes fails to convert the line to the comment color. See attached JPG for an example.

Visual Assist can color Classes, Variables, Macros and Methods, but not comments. Comments are colored by Visual Studio and controlled by the below option:

Tools -> Environment -> Fonts and Colors -> Comment

I believe this bug is not a Visual Assist issue.

Just to rule out that Visual Assist is coloring the macro, what happens if you disable Visual Assist temporarily?

VASSISTX -> Enable/Disable Visual Assist X

Does this make any difference? If the macro coloring disappears, it means a probable Visual Assist issue.
