I have a C project that was developed in Visual Studio 6.0. I converted that project to a Visual C++ .NET solution with the hope to use more sophisticated .NET IDE, including IntelliSense.
In the project I have a number of user defined types, enumerations, "defines" and functions. I use also libraries that are shipped together with corresponding .h files.
My problem is that IntelliSense does not show the functions defined in the libraries although the prototypes are included in the .h files (included in the project). It is interesting that the enumerations, defined in the same .h files, are recognized and shown by IntelliSense.
Maybe it's irrelevant but just to mention: I use .net as a development environment, however compiling and linking are executed by external C compiler and C linker.
