@ ch.ali.umair

These add-on providers for the MS SQL SErver 2008 R2 are official add-on from Microsoft! However, brace matcher and syntex highlighter seems they are third party tools/add-on just for Visual Studio not also for the SSMS of the SQL Server 2008 R2 and in this case for the Express Edition with Advanced Features!
