Snippet Explorer


Snippet Explorer should seach for all snippets in all sub-directories of the chosen option (including those with multiple sub-directories under it).
\VC#\Snippets\1033: Right now it only searches the C# directory
\VB\Snippets\1033: Right now it only searches WindowsForms and WPF

Without this support the "Snippet Manager" that comes with VS is a better tool to see all the snippets that are installed.  Hope this can be in the next version.

The explorer does search all sub directories. To test this I created several nested folders and I added a snippet in the last one so that the path to the snippet was:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VB\Snippets\1033\os\matt\cool\nice\MySnippet.snippet
And the snippet explorer successfully picked this up.

Can you tell me what behavior you are seeing and give me repro steps?
