mk, very sorry this seems to have gone so long without a response!  We've been pushing hard to ready another release soon.  All this stuff should work, and we do NOT limit our functionality based on the SKU of VS you have :-).  If the tools load (which they don't in the Express SKUs), then you get it all.  I'm not sure why these basic things aren't working, since they have from early CTPs.  Please try the next release coming "very soon" since there were many performance and fixes to the code modeling engine.

Subject: [IronPython] Crippled Intellisense?

I got an MSDN license which allowed me to install VS 2010 Professional, 
I also installed IronPython tools. However, intellisense doesn't seem to 
fully work, for instance I can access string method's like


but when I do

x = 'abc'

and then


it just underscores it in red.

Most of intellisense autocompletions from IronPython walkthrough don't 
work, e.g.:

def f(abc):
     return abc


Anybody knows what's going on with this? Is this limitation of Pro as 
opposed to Ultimate and whatitsname versions of VS 2010?



Premature optimization is the root of all fun.
