[NTG-context] Installing VSCode extension?

I am installing the Windows version of ConTeXt, which comes with a VSCode
extension, in


with instructions to run (from within the VSCode terminal):

code -- extensions-dir <above directory> -- install-extension context

The trouble is that the current ConTeXt installation (as of 65 minutes
ago), doesn't seem to contain an extension in the format that VSCode
understands.  Running that command produces the errors:

Installing extensions...
Extension 'context' not found.
Make sure you use the full extension ID, including the publisher, e.g.:
Failed Installing Extensions: context:

For what it's worth, I'm running VSCode 1.46.0.

How can I install the VSCode ConTeXt extension?

Thank you,
