I can’t just bear the intellisense of VS2005. So went out to find ways to disable this feature since I have another intellisense (you know right?) 😉 package from a private vendor.

Here are some ways to disable this feature in VS2005…

  1. Rename \Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\vcpackages\feacp.dll
    I’ve renamed it to “feacp.dll.renamed_to_disable_intellisense”. Hehe
  2. Open .ncb file of your project exclusively and then open your solution. You will get a warning which you will enjoy seeing. Take a look

Helped me a lot. Hope Microsoft(r) fixes this crap soon!! 😐 Sometimes I do wonder, didn’t they test this at all ? 🙁

Most probably you can do the same in VS2008. But not everybody is as lucky as I am. I have another intellisense software but don’t know whether others have the same option.
