Doxygen was not creating any documentation for my IDL files. It found and parsed them but didn't treat them as IDL files. After many hours I finally tried renaming the files from having an uppercase .IDL extension to a lowercase .idl extension and it worked! Unfortunately Visual Studio creates the files with an uppercase extension so I had to manually rename them all. When determining the file type, I believe the extension should be case-insensitive, at least on Windows platforms.

Agreed. I'll do the extension comparison after converting the file name to lower case.
