Intellisense for TestComplete's Script Extensions description.xml file

I’ve been working on Script Extensions for TestComplete and thought it would be nice to have Intellisense support while editing the description.xml file required by the IDE. Here is what I did:

  1. Opened the TestComplete online help and searched for description.xml
  2. Copied the xml and saved it to a .xml file

     TestComplete online help for description.xml

  3. From the command line I ran xsd.exe on the file as follows:

    %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SDK\v2.0\Bin\xsd.exe TCSchema.xml

  4. In VS.NET open a description.xml file
  5. Select XML|Schemas… and Add the schema file saved in the step above:

Now, I have Intellisense support for creating description.xml files.
