Hi guys,
few days after using Visual Studio 2008 on Windows 7, it happens that Visual Studio losts XAML intellisense functionality, making my coding very annoying.
The issue is well known in Microsoft Community, even if the cause is not so clear in my opinion: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/windowssdk/thread/dd6f14ed-e582-4b49-9358-64f2afaec151/


The faster fix consists in manually registering the TextMgrP.dll:

On an X86 machine:

  1. Open a Windows CMD window as an Administrator (On Vista: Start, All Programs, Accessories, right-click on command prompt and  choose to Run as Administrator)
  2. Type: regsvr32 “%CommonProgramFiles%\Microsoft Shared\MSEnv\TextMgrP.dll”

On an X64 machine:

  1. Open a Windows CMD window as an Administrator (On Vista: Start, All Programs, Accessories, right-click on command prompt and  choose to Run as Administrator)
  2. Type: regsvr32 “%CommonProgramFiles(X86)%\Microsoft Shared\MSEnv\TextMgrP.dll”

After that don’t forget to close all opened Visual Studio and launch them again 🙂


The described procedure solved my problem.

Stay tuned,
Marzio.
