Hi gisiman!

1.) Open your Visual Studio project, right click on the project node and select 'add existing items'
2.) Select the repository '.rxrep' and '.cs' files (now the files are included in your VS project)
3.) Right click on the 'reference' node and include the missing dll`s (i.e. Ranorex.Core; System.Drawing...)

Now you`re able to open the .rxrep or .rxrec files with our standalone tools (Ranorex Spy or Ranorex Recorder) within Visual Studio (right click-> open with).

At the moment it`s only possible to open Ranorex specific code within Visual Studio by our Standalone (External) Tools but VS-Plugins are on our feature request list.

Best regards,
