Problem: Intellisense (I think I'm referring to the correct phenomenon) stopped working in run mode. I.e., mouse-over of variables doesn't popup a value window. Can someone direct me in the right direction to get debugging back on track?
I did some really ugly refactoring and had to do a lot of search/replace and other editing in a couple files of my project. Following that mess and a recompliation, I got a runtime error (access violation trying to access a null address, etc.), not unexpected.
For debugging, I set a breakpoint to examine values, but I could not examine any data values. Mouse-over of variables did not result in a popup value window. Right-clicking on a variable and "Add Watch" results in the watch window stating "identifier some-variable-name is not defined."
In a previous version of VS, Intellisense wouldn't work properly, I could delete the .ncb file, restart VS and all was again well. However, VS 2013 Express doesn't appear to have an equivalent file.
I cleaned/rebuilt the Solution with no effect on the problem.
I tried Tools->Import and Export Settings->Reset (as suggested somewhere on MSDN) which didn't work (made things worse - VS now restarts whenever I close it - but that's a different subject)
Any help is greatly appreciated.
EDIT: further info - compiled in debug mode; optimizations disabled.
