Not getting syntax highlighting for *.chirp.less files

Feb 19, 2012 at 6:38 PM
  • Downloaded the latest source, opened the .sln and built it with with vs2010. Installed bin\Chirp.vsi. 
  • Tools -> Options -> Chirp -> dynamic CSS -> Syntax highlighting  is checked
  • Opened an existing MVC test project, created Less1.chirp.less
  • There is no syntax highlighting. 


Mindscape Web Workbench is uninstalled (orignally had it, but uninstalled it and re-installed Chirpy, but that didn't fix it). When I tried with both installed Chirp wasn't auto updating the .css code behinds when i saved the .chirp.less files.

I  can confirm the exact same scenario and problem (crazy coincidence, that is).

Update: I just went ahead and purchased the Pro version of Mindscape Workbench and disabled Chirp.
