Editing App-V .osd files with Notepad++

Editing App-V OSD files in Notepad++ with syntax highlighting is fairly easy.  Just associate XML with OSD.

You can do that like this:

Select Settings > Style Configurator…


now add osd as User ext. to XML (you may want to add osd sprj instead of only osd ;-) )

Restart Notepad++ and reopen OSD file(s) if the are already opened.

Now you should be able to edit the OSD files with syntax highlighting and color coding.
