Hello,
I have a project with some DLLs and an EXE. The DLLs link their own *.natvis files, say "dllA.natvis" and "dllB.natvis". The *.exe also has an "exe.natvis" file.
Since VSCode does not recognize the embedded *.natvis resources from the DLLs/EXE, I manually specify "visualizerFile" in my launch configuration.
However, I can only specify one *.natvis file for "visualizerFile", so I have to create an ad-hoc "all.natvis" which is basically the union of "dllA.natvis", "dllB.natvis" and "exe.natvis". I also have to remember to change "all.natvis" whenever I update one of the other *.natvis files.

This is cumbersome, I would prefer to just put

"visualizerFile": [
  "${workspaceRoot}/dllA/dllA.natvis", 
  "${workspaceRoot}/dllB/dllB.natvis", 
  "${workspaceRoot}/exe/exe.natvis", 
]

Could you please provide such a feature?

Best regards,
Peter

Or support "visualizerFileDirectory" and load each natvis files under it.
