I read another post about some changes in 4.0 to where ActiPro looks in the assembly... but from that, still couldn't get this working.

I want to build a simple app (VB.NET), that will display a vb.net file, and have it support code-collapsing, highlighting, etc., but I get the following error:

An error occurred while loading the DynamicSyntaxLanguage '{Unknown}':
The syntax language type 'TestApplication.VBDotNetDynamicSyntaxLanguage, TestApplication' could not be loaded.
The problem occurred near line 1, position 2
in Unknown Stream.

What is the easiest way to get this to work? All I want to do is use the VBDotNet.xml file, and have it do some syntax highlighting.

The code collapsing is implemented in the code behind file for the dynamic language XML definition. It is looking for a TestApplication.VBDotNetDynamicSyntaxLanguage class in the TestApplication assembly. You need to take that class from the sample project and put it in your assembly. Then open the VBDotNet.xml file and in the root tag, change the "namespace/type, assembly" reference to load the class in your assembly instead.

The "Loading a DynamicSyntaxLanguage Implementation" section in the "Dynamic Languages Guide / Loading and Saving" documentation topic explains all of this so check that out.

Hehe... not a problem. It's a big manual, sometimes it's tough to find things.
