I was working on a Windows Server 2008 VM doing up some WPF demos when my IntelliSense stopped working. After a bit of research, I tracked down the problem. There’s a known issue with the IntelliSense for XAML and the Windows SDK for Server 2008 and .NET 3.5. Fortunately, the fix is as easy as reregistering a DLL. Below is the fix (just type it into a command window), and a link to the original article.
- 32-Bit Systems:
regsvr32 "%CommonProgramFiles%\Microsoft Shared\MSEnv\TextMgrP.dll"
- 64-Bit Systems:
regsvr32 "%CommonProgramFiles(X86)%\Microsoft Shared\MSEnv\TextMgrP.dll"
