The autocomplete for Visual Studio 2012 stops working in certain situations. I can't reproduce exactly what situations yet, but the only way to get it to start working again is to restart Visual Studio. I have seen it happen twice already in a 4 hour period.

Hi Brad,
        Thanks for reporting this issue. Can you try installing the latest Update 2 CTP ( and let me know if this still reproes. We have made whole bunch of fixes around IntelliSense reliability in Update 2.

We are aware of one case where this can stop working. Could you tell us if the problem started when you were trying to get signature help for a method ?

I can't say when it started, but I'm currently working on a XAML Windows Store app and I'm not getting any intellisense for my XAML markup. Works on the C# portion still though. Works after a restart of VS2012 however.
