See http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/roslyn/thread/aa99d1ab-2aa6-41da-abd2-6724146881d2 on how to resolve this issue.

It would be nice though if there was a DocumentationProvider included in Roslyn that can pull up and parse XML files from the assembly folder or from Program Files/Reference Assemblies.

Hi Sunny,

this is an issue I already mentionend in the "Roslyn" forum regarding the June 2012 CTP. And obviously this has not changed within the latest September CTP. Here you will find more details:

Hope this sheds some light on your concerns as well.

Kind regards
Tobias
