I'm using VisualAssist build 2393 on Visual Studio 2019 (16.3.9).
I'd like to add support for custom extensions we use for HLSL shader files: ".mshader" and ".mshaders".

I followed the instructions in this page: https://docs.wholetomato.com/default.asp?W353

I exited VisualStudio, and modified the registry variables:








However, upon reloading Visual Studio, I still don't get color highlighting in .mshader files.

If I rename a shader file to ".h" or ".cpp" I do get highlighting, so it's not a problem with the file contents.

Is there anything else I need to do to enable support for those extensions?

Does anyone from Whole Tomato have any idea why I can't get this feature to work?

Sorry for the delay.

To get VA to treat the new extensions as a C++ file and provide highlighting, please follow the instructions here. There are a few extra steps that the other documentation page does not list.
