MASM Syntax Highlighting In Visual Studio

MASM syntax highlighting in Visual Studio

When a text editor uses syntax highlighting, language keywords, strings, and other elements appear in different colors. Visual Studio and Visual C++ Express can highlight MASM reserved words and strings, as shown in the following example:

This won't happen automatically, but you can create a syntax definition file named Usertype.dat that contains MASM keywords. Then when Visual Studio (or Visual C++ Express) starts, it reads the syntax file and highlights MASM keywords.

Here are the required steps to set up MASM syntax highlighting in Visual Studio or Visual C++ Express:

1) Download the Usertype.dat file given here to a folder in which you have read/write permissions. If you are using Windows Vista, download to My Documents, or C:\temp, or any folder that doesn't have security restrictions.

2) Copy Usertype.dat to the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE folder. If you are using Windows Vista, it will display a verification window before copying the file.

3) Open Visual Studio or Visual C++ Express, select Options from the Tools menu, select Text Editor, and select File Extension. On the right side of the dialog (shown below), enter asm as the extension, select Microsoft Visual C++ from the Editor list, and click the Add button. Click the OK button to save your changes.

Close Visual Studio and restart it. Open your project and display an ASM file. You should see syntax highlighting in the editor.
