With VS 2015 a kerenl mode driver project will see the Intellisense squiggle at the first column of the first line of any .C file in the project even if that file is empty.  All Intellisense info after that is absent in the .C source.

IntelliSense for C mode is fine for the regular case, but for /kernel mode it's indeed broken.
This will be fixed in the upcoming VS 2015 Update 1.

Yes, same here, very annoying.

The exact error from intellisense is:
Severity    Code    Description    
Error (active)        command-line error: exception handling option can be used only when compiling C++    

C++ exception handling is disabled and the code builds fine.

Seems like intellisense may be completely broken for C in VS 2015.
