Edit files with no extension

P: n/a
Still trying to figure this one out:

I want to edit aspx files that do not have the .aspx extension. Is this
possible while still getting the statement completion, text colorization and
highlighting in Microsoft Visual Studio Dot Net Enterprise Architect?

I wish to use an alternative extension (or no extension at all) and still
get text highlighting that you would find for a .aspx extension. I was
originally told to edit the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio \7.1\Editors\{8281C572-217
1-45AA-A642-7D8BC1662F1C}\Extensions.
I added a new DWORD Value
with the title "aca" and
with a value data of "27" and
with a base of hexidecimal because it just seemed like the right thing to
do.... reboot machine = no go. The text in my .aca file is still rendered
like a .txt text file. I even removed the "asp" from this key and asp files
still render correctly in the ide.

Someone must have done this at some point, right?

Please help... if you can...

Respectfully,
Alan
