Hi

Is there a way to make the intellisense work in native c++ with XML comments?
Also, why does it sometimes stop working?

Thanks

It stops working if the class tree is not up-to-date.

That is for example if you copied a function in the cpp which wasn't declared yet in the header file (or declared differently with other arguments). Sometimes the class tree  could not recover from previous erors. The only recipe against I know is to close Visual Studio and delete the .ncb file. Then it should work next time.
