Visual Express 2008 and Intellisense


#1

In Visual Express 2008 I can’t get the intellisense functionality working (I get no help)

The error I get is:

Intellisens: ‘Expression to the left of, or ->has a type which could not be resolved’

As a beginner in programming this missing functionality makes is hard to progress

Any help from the specialists?

assuming you’re not trying to use -> when you meant to use . probably the intellisense file is hosed. That happens sometimes.

close down vc, delete the intellisense file, and re-open the project. Let it rebuild the intellisense file. Try again.

Thanks for the advice but that didn’t solve the problem :frowning:

Please let me know if you have some other advices!
