    @geeyef: You mean the streaming file? I can't repro this.

    Yes, it was the streaming file. It's working now.  Happened several times in a row for me but it's ok now.

    Hello people, I'm really trying to reproduce the source codes hi makes in VS2011, but this is not working for me. I must be doing something wrong, I don't have intellisense at all and cant find references such as 'Platform'.

    Is there any chances of getting the source code of this? I mean, a zip with the first solution he uses for example. That would be awesome.

    Thank you!!

    Just wanted to add, maybe I should add this at the forum but... I must try this on Windows 8? Because I'm trying to do the same things that shows on the video in VS2011 on Windows 7.

    Do I have the /CX things on 7 with VS2011?

    ArmandoMeabe, AFAIK you need Win8 to build WinRT components. That may be why you're not seeing C++/CX options on your machine

    @harrypierson: Thank you Harry! Thats kind of bad news to me, I think W8 is tecnically awesome, but I just can't imagine myself in the laboratory using such a happy coloured interface with animations and all... I guess I'l give it a new try, maybe I could disable that. Thanks again!

    @ArmandoMeabe Give it a try - I've been dogfooding Win8 since before the //build conference and I love the new start menu and the full screen Metro apps. You get used to the new normal very quickly. Win8 Release Preview coming first week of June: https://twitter.com/#!/BuildWindows8/status/194627936115101696
