IDE spec for registry settings


Advanced customization of Visual Assist is possible with registry settings whose keys vary with version of IDE. Use this table to determine the correct branch of the registry to change.

You must close all instances of your IDE before changing the registry. If you make a change when your IDE is active, you will lose the change when your IDE exits.

If you use Visual Assist in multiple IDEs, you must change the respective registry setting for each IDE.
