I've worked with Visual Studio 2008 before and it was fine.  I changed the computer with Windows 7 and reinstall Visual Studio 2008.  But after the new installation of VS 2008, I don't have intellisense and the comment function on the tool bar just being disable.  How can I get intellisense for the source code editor and enable the comment function on the tool bar.

Thank you

you can use keyboard shortcuts:
- CTRL + "space" shall open the Intellisense list
- select the codes you want to comment/uncomment and press CTRL + "k" + "c" (for commenting) and CTRL + "k" + "u" (uncomment)

and if the Intellisense function itself is disabled:

- open SQL Server Management Studio 2008 (SSMS)
- from the menu, select "Tools" then "Options"
- SSMS Option dialog will be displayed
- on the tree view, click on "Text Editor" then "Transact - SQL"
- click on Intellisense in the left pane
- click on the checkbox "Enable IntelliSense"
- click "OK" button.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Tools -> Options -> Text Editor -> Choose your language (ex. VB) -> Intellisense.

Check Intellisense pre-selects most recently used members.

My problem is with MS Visual Studio 2008, not MS SQL Server.and I have tried all what all of you suggested above except the command by keyboard short cuts, but I did try today and it did not work.  The information I believe is correct because I've seen that before.  I have tried to reinstall the Visual Studio 2008 few times, even with different versions of the software but the result is still the same so I think the reason could have something to do with my new computer where some settings do not let Visual Studio 2008 change the registry or environment variables.  I got few errors some times regarding can not load the package...

  Thank you for all your answers.

The command from start > run"devenv /resetsettings" will restore Visual Studio back to its original factory state.

If you have previously saved your settings from option 1 above, you can pass them as a parameter:
"devenv /resetsettings <SettingsFile>".

Let me know if this works for ya. Or I'll share my settings file.
