What’s This? No Intellisense for WPF’s Xaml View.

March 18, 2008

I swear that the Xaml view had intellisense at one point. What is going on? Well apparently there is a problem where the intellisense stops working after installing an SDK or MSDN. In my case I believe this occurred after installing the .NET 2.0 Framework SDK. Great news though, there is a fix thanks to Brett Kilty of Microsoft.

To fix this you need to set the Default string value to the path of your TextMgrP.dll for the key “HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{73B7DC00-F498-4ABD-AB79-D07AFD52F395}\InProcServer32”.

Here are the steps I executed to fix this:
1) Opened regedit
2) Searched for ‘{73B7DC00-F498-4ABD-AB79-D07AFD52F395}’
3) Expanded the key and clicked InProcServer32
4) The Default string was empty so I set it to ‘C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\MSEnv\TextMgrP.dll’
5) Restarted Visual Studio
6) Smiled

btw – I’m running Visual Studio Professional 2008.
