Error updating jscript intellisense

A referenced script may have caused a stack overflow. It's only when the stupid JScript intellisense tries to parse the file does it choke.

Reopen this file to reenable Intelli Sense." I have 3 solutions (originally created in 2005) that I am now attempting to use in 2008 and all have this same error. There is only a Default.aspx, cs, a web.config, and an empty App_Data folder. It's one of those cases where it fixed one bug but then another cropped up. Check out this blog entry: has created a header file that will fix the problem for you!

After making the recommended changes intellisense worked great until I changed to the minified version of jquery.

NET MVC and j Query and making my first baby steps in a whole new horrible world of web development.

I have tried removing, one by one, all script tags from the page. The error message reappears everytime until there are no script tags what so ever. I only had to take 2 steps to reproduce the problem. I now get the following error: Warning 13 Error updating JScript Intelli Sense: D:\...\menu.js: Automation server can't create object @ 0:0 D:\... 1 D:\...\Search\ The file contains many references to new Active XObject("MSXML2. When googling this issue I find that most of the refrences to this problem are several years old and the fix was to reinstall MS Script.

The moment I add another script section and click inside the tags, I see at the bottom it says JScript intellisense updating... One thing worth noting is that the intellisense isn't completely broken.


I found out that the Java Script Intelli Sense in Visual Studio 2008 is broken out of the box.
