I just installed vs2010, and installed the latest VA build. When browsing through my project, I noticed red lines everywhere - for some reason, VA thinks 50% of my code contains mistyped symbols.

Can anyone help? This wasn't an issue in Visual Studio 2005 or 2008.

Can you please try turning off:

VA Options -> Advanced -> Underlines -> Underline mistyped symbols using

and see what effect, if any, this has? VA does not underline mistyped symbols in C++ in VS2010, since the IDE does this automatically, so this should not have any effect on what you are seeing. But since you don't have this problem in the earlier IDE's, I am not sure why you have so much underlining in VS2010.

Does your solution compile, or are you getting errors that match up with the underlining?

Thanks for the reply - turning this off did not make the lines go away. Any other ideas?

Can you try setting the two IDE options:

IDE tools menu -> Options -> Text Editor -> C/C++ -> Advanced -> Disable Error Reporting = True
IDE tools menu -> Options -> Text Editor -> C/C++ -> Advanced -> Disable Squiggles = True

this should stop these underlines from appearing. You probably only need to turn one of these off, depending on what is triggering these underlines. Since the IDE is inserting these underlines, you will probably get matching errors when you try to compile, which should help to explain why you have these underlines.

Thanks for the reply. I'll give this a shot - however, I experience no errors when I'm building.

If this works, then the underlining is coming from the IDE. If so, I would suggest turning the IDE underling back on, and then hovering the mouse over one of the underlined symbols. You should get a tooltip telling you why the IDE has underlined the symbol, which will hopefully help to explain what is going on here.

Yeah I'm not sure what's going on. It's very basic errors, which aren't errors at all:

  • Error: Identifier "Initialize" is undefined
  • Error: name followed by "::" but be a class or namespace
  • Error: a type qualifier is not allowed on a non member function


None of these are valid - I can ctrl+g with VA, and navigate to their implementations fine.

Very strange. You could try closing VS2010 and then deleting the .SDF file in the root directory of your solution. This is the file the IDE stores its intellisense database in, and deleting it will force the IDE to rebuild the database. If this is caused by some form of corruption in the database this might fix the problem.
