Fixing the #mvvmlight code snippets in Visual Studio 11

If you installed the latest MVVM Light version for Windows 8, you may encounter an issue where code snippets are not displayed correctly in the Intellisense popup. I am working on a fix, but for now here is how you can solve the issue manually.

Brilliant, thank you! I installed the toolkit in VS2010 for a WP7 app and didn't have the snippets.

For info, this is fixed in the next release (V4 RC, the installer will come out in the next few days).

Cheers,
Laurent

Hi Laurent, I've installed latest version of MVVMlight for VS2012. But the code snippets aren't there. So I applied this fix manually - now snippets are shown in the Code Snippets Manager. Unfortunately I still cannot type them out using shortcuts. What else can be done? (Im using Win7, with Resharper 7.0 installed)

For some reason, after a restart it works now. Thank you for all the great stuff!

I am using VS2010 and just uninstalled mvvmlight 4.0.23.1 and ran the CleanOldFiles.exe. I used the NuGet command to install the latest version on my project and now I have no code snippets or directory to point to as directed in this article. What now?
