By duplicating the GUID used for the .py extension in a new registry key at [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0\Languages\File
Extensions\.ipy], VS08 recognizes the syntax and provided limited Intellisense.

Having installed the ASP.NET Futures package, I get syntax highlighting for files with the .py extension in Visual Studio 2008. I am unable to find a setting to associate files with a .ipy extension as the same.

I use both the CPython and IronPython interpreters, and would like to use the file extensions to keep the scripts separate. Is there a VS config setting or a registry key to set the file type in VS?
