    I just installed VS 2008 at work, opened up a project I was just working on in 2005 and I noticed a significant slowdown in my ability to crank out code.  would it be the intellisense that is doing this?  Is there a way to turn off the intellisense's filter? 

    Specifically I was typing out a variable declaration in a function.  

             dim variable_name as decimal = me.header(0).column name

    I am getting about a 7 to 10 second lag for that text to show up, but a bunch of flickering from the intellisense windows briefly showing up and disappearing.


    Anyone else getting this problem?  Any fixes to make writing code as fast as 2005?

    Thanks in advanceā€¦

    (Oh lookie, my function I wrote up before posting this just appeared in my code.. yeppie!)



    Hi modi123,

    I believe you are running into the following issue:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/946452
    A fix will be included in SP1 and will be linked from the KB article once available.

    In the meantime, there is a workaround. Please turn off the option to "Generate XML documentation file". Here are instructions to find that option:
    - Double-click "My Project" in Solution Explorer.
    - Navigate to the "Compile" tab of the App Designer that appears.
    - Go to the bottom of the page and un-check the option.

    Please let me know if that solves your issue.

    Thanks,
