    Just to add some clarification to some of this ... I have never had Resharper installed ever on my machine and started experiencing this as well.  When I went into the Tools > Options, the setting mentioned had been turned off ... but I did not do that.  I didn't even know the setting existed before reading this thread.

    What I am assuming based on this information is that it is JustCode that is turning that off somehow and if that action was not a planned side effect of the Dev team then they should really look into that.

    I almost just uninstalled JC and went on without it even though, so far, I have really enjoyed it ... simply because of this.  Luckily I decided to do some research first but I am fairly certain that not all users giving this product a trial run will do so.

    Thank you.  I am looking forward to having a tool where I can have all the functionality, while still maintaining the performance level of Visual Studio that I currently have.

    Completely trashed my development environment.

    I've tried CodeRush and Resharper, but did not like the way they interfered with the editing experience.  I had hoped that your JustCode solution did a better job, but alas, my experience was much worse.

    First and foremost, it completely killed Intellisense.  I read the trials and challenges face by others, and my experience was not much different.  However, I was unable to get Intellisense to work at all after installing JustCode.  Disabling the add-in did nothing.  My settings were all correct, but I found myself wasting a significant amount of time just trying to figure out what was wrong. 

    Finally, I just decided to uninstall the whole package.

    Interesting side note - when I uninstalled the product, my browser opened a "feedback" page.  But when I tried to submit the above feedback, it failed to submit, saying "Oops.  Cheer up and download a trial version."  Cheesy, guys.

    John, Really sorry to hear you've had a bad experience with JustCode. I'm sure that they guys at Telerik Towers would like to know more about your environment and set up to see if there is something that they can identify as a particular cause. Can you give us more info? For example, what versions of the OS and VS do you have installed? What service packs? Do you have any other add-ins installed? When you ran the install, did you get any warning or errors? I appreciate that having had a bad experience you may not be really interested in providing more info, but anything you can add my help prevent others having the same issue. FWIW, I've been running JC in VS2008 on XP through to VS2010 under Win7 x64 and whilst, back in the day, there were a few memory usage issues, I can honestly say that JC has only aided my programming experience. -- Stuart

    Well, let's see.  VMWare Fusion on a 2 x 2.8 GHz Quadcore Intel Mac Pro running Windows Server 2008 R2 in 8GB.  Visual Studio 2010 SP1.  Latest version of JustCode.  Found that Intellisense had been turned off by JC after the uninstall, so I had to re-enable the "Underline errors in the editor" and "Show live semantic errors" settings, which had been ON before installing JC.  (It would be good if the uninstaller puts the settings back to what they were before the install, or prompts you to select which settings you want restored).

    Before uninstalling JC, I found that the Tools>Options dialog was broken.  Basically froze whenever I tried to save any options.  That was when I decided to uninstall JC.  Honestly not sure if it was JC that caused the problem, but they did go away after the uninstall.  Couldn't determine exactly what caused the IDE to crash, but I had just disabled the JC addin in the Tools>Add-In Manager before trying to edit tools options, so I think that may have had something to do with it.

    On the positive side, by way of feedback, I actually like the design approach and certain features seem pretty smart.  Unfortunately, it takes a while to get use to them, no matter what tool you decide to use.  But in addition to the basic highjacking of intellisense, there were noticeable lags while typing that just got in my way.  I had the same complaint about CodeRush.  Too much "intelligence" just starts to get in the way and becomes more of a distraction than a help.

    I'm thinking to try JC again when I finally move over to VS2012, since I'll be on a new learning curve anyway.

    Hi

    I must admit I never saw any interference with Intellesence , certainly R# does the things you say with unhecking the error indicators etc , so maybe that was a legacy.

    Intellesence was a bit of a sore pont with me . If you use R# or Visual Assist X you will see intellesence but more , I made a feature request of this.

    I sadly gave up on JC , I upgraded hardware and the 64 Bit win 7 & 8G RAM overcomes the major memory issues with R#, so I am currently running with R#7  and seeing no issues that I had before.

    Also the absence of an Outliner type tool is another missing link. Put these in andI think JC will be the add in of choice rivalling R#.

    The final blow was I had to renew my license , and 50% of initial cost $125, I considered a bit steep , I upgraded my R# license for 2-3 years for less

    Alas

    Mike

    Hello,

     @John Holliday
    Thanks for the detailed information.
    We will investigate this issue even though, there shouldn't be a reason for Intellisense to stop after JustCode installation. JustCode does not interfere with Intellisense at all.

    Regarding the changed options "Underline errors in the editor" and "Show live semantic errors", I will confirm that we change these settings and we have plans to improve our installer.

    We are aware of slowness issues related to the Options dialog, that have been caused by the new themes, but this is already fixed in the next release.

    The lags that you have experienced, sometimes are caused when Typing assistance option is turned on and the user have installed Productivity tool which conflicts with JustCode.
    We are going to release a new official version these days, so please give it a try.
    Thanks.

    All the best,
    Zdravko

    Hi,

     @John Holliday 
    I missed something. Actually, it seems that we are stopping intellisense for a part of the second in some particular moments, but we are turning it on right after that. Maybe something goes wrong in this moment.
    Would you check if the VS intellisense option is enabled when this happens. It is located at VS Tools menu -> Options -> Text Editor -> specific language (e.g C#) -> IntelliSense and check there if the "Show completion list after a character is typed " setting is enabled.
    Thanks.

    I wanted to ditto that I saw this issue as well - the Visual Studio C# Text Editor settings had been disabled. After changing the setting back, VS 2012 worked as expected again. In my case, I had tried installing ReSharper earlier in the day. The installation had failed miserably and made Visual Studio useless. JustCode has been great!

    Hi,

    I also had the problem that after installing JustCode Intellisense stopped working, but thanks to this thread I fixed it. The problem was that the option "Show completion list after character typed" was turned off, so I turned it back on.

    Cheers,
    Alex
