Stop updating intellisense

I have tried refeshing the Intelli Sense cache with Ctrl-Shft-R but that doesn't work either.Any ideas what happened to my Intelli Sense and what I need to do to get it back?

Refreshing the cache is easy but not necessarily obvious. I checked Intelli Sense, and found it was enabled already. These two features are what I think of as "intellisense", and Microsoft does not disagree: Intelli Sense is the general term for a number of features: List Members, Parameter Info, Quick Info, and Complete Word.However, I found that "Auto list members" and "Parameter information" were unchecked. These features help you to learn more about the code you are using, keep track of the parameters you are typing, and add calls to properties and methods with only a few keystrokes.I installed Visual Studio 2015 Update 2 and it has been a nightmare.A lot of problems arose and I tried to uninstall it so that i could put on update 1 but there are some files that are persisting after the uninstall because when I try to install visual studio with update 1 it closes down after I install components.I was running the latest version of Visual Studio 2013 and ran into the intellisense not automatically popping up when I would type a period.Now I could hit CTRL-J (list members) and it would pop up the list which showed me that it worked and was not dead per se, but I still did not have it automatically popup after typing a period.

I was also running Visual Studio 2012 on the same box and it did not have the same problem; intellisense popped the list up on the period. Here is what made it auto pop for me: That brought back the auto popup for me in VS2013 and should for you as well.

This fix should work with any version of Visual Studio 2008, 2010, 20. Then see Using Intellisense on MSDN for other troubleshooting suggestions. Net users are experiencing a different kind of intellisense failure.

If it is web related intellisense look into installing Visual Studio Web tools. NET and Web Tools 2013.1 for Visual Studio 2012 This entry was posted on September 13, 2013, am and is filed under Suggestions, Visual Studio.

This problem is really proving to be a tricky one (and quite annoying).

In SQL Server Management Studio 2008, up until a few days ago my Intelli Sense was working great. The icon as it as enabled on the toolbar menu, and under Tools - Intelli Sense it says it is enabled there.
