Steps to reproduce:

* In VS2013
* Create a win32 exe hello world project.
* Right click on project, and manage nuget references.
* Add expat, or zlib for example.
* Type '#include <z'
* Nothing happens.
* Disable Visual Assist.
* Type '#include <z' VS built-in intellisense works.

Additionally, as Visual Assist doesn't parse the header, you can't use VAX's go to definition.

Visual Assist switched on:

Visual Assist switched off (using VS native intellisense):

I'm running the latest beta, with everything else switched off in VS2013.

Thanks for the confirmation.

I've just download build 2042 and it works fine. Thanks for this.

case=79296 is fixed in build 2042.

Great, thanks.

I believe that is the default name and location. At any rate, we are aiming to have improvements in this area for the next release.

Hi @sean - we use a NuGet.config file at the same level/folder as our solution, which then places the packages in a folder at the same level. The contents (for us, at least) is just:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <!-- See http://docs.nuget.org/docs/reference/nuget-config-file for more detail. -->
    <!--  CUSTOM PACKAGE PATH  -->
    <add key="repositoryPath" value="packages" />	
    <!-- This prevents people accidentally pushing packages. -->
    <add key="DefaultPushSource" value="http://" />
    <add key="TeamCity" value="http://teamcity:8070/guestAuth/app/nuget/v1/FeedService.svc/" />
    <!-- Once you add a custom feed NuGet now ignores the official feed so we have to add that as well -->
    <add key="NuGet official package source" value="https://nuget.org/api/v2/" />

@barryl72 Do you use the default repository directory ("packages") or do you customize it using your nuget config file?

@feline - thanks. Getting this working would be a big help for us. If you have anything you need testing, please let me know.

Interesting, thank you for the information. Our developers are currently looking into adding NuGet support, the trick is working out something solid and reliable, release worthy. I don't currently have an estimate for when this will be done, it partly depends on what they find, but hopefully this will appear sooner rather than later.

Hi @feline - sorry for the even slower reply!

It appears that I already have that option set, and the results are still the same as shown in the screenshots above.

As far as I can tell, NuGet inserts an 'import project' directive, into the .vcxproj that includes a .targets file from the NuGet package. That in turn, is just an xml build with further msbuild (?) directives, including this:


Do you parse those things?

Apologies for the slow reply. Turning:

VA Options -> Listboxes -> Get content from default Intellisense

on gets you most of the way there. Can you please try this and see how much this helps? With this set, what problems are you still seeing?
barryl72 Posted - May 12 2014 : 05:16:13 AM
Is there a way to disable VAX's include intellisense?

Unfortunately this is a known problem:


we are still trying to work out how to detect the extra include directories that nuget is adding. For now, if you only have a few projects using nuget then the best solution for now is to manually add the nuget directories to the projects additional include directories.
