FS#89 - Codinion is enabled, but there is no syntax highlighting in VS 2017 RC

Hi, just downloaded the Codinion beta with VS 2017 RC support. I do NOT have "Lightweight Solution Load" checked. In the Codinion options, Enhanced Syntax Highlighting is enabled. For C#, I have Method, Method Parameter, and Primitive Type enabled with various colors. I am not seeing any color changes in my files. This is a Unity 5.5p4 C# project.

There is no ActivityLog.xml that I can find in the %appdata%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\15.0_653bb3c8 folder.

A sidenote: just wanted to say thank you for your extension. It was working beautifully in VS 2015.

I also met with this issue at the very first run after Codinion was installed onto VS 2017 RC 26020.

It appeared to be working at the subsequent startups of VS 2017 until the #88 issue occured.

This issue also occured on my VS 2015 installation.

I created a new Console C# Project without saving the solution. The highlighting didn't work.

Thanks for reporting this, i will have a look.

A workaround could be: Please try to close the File Tab and reopen it.

Closing the code files wouldn't help.

The only workaround was reloading the solution at this moment.

This issue was not yet fixed after installing the 4703 build. If I open a solution by double clicking it from Windows Explorer, it would not be syntax-highlighted. The only way to get it work is to open VS first, and then load the solution later.
