IntelliSense does not show documentation

Hello there,

I encounter some problems using ReSharper. As you can see in the first two pictures attached, no documentation is shown after invoking ReSharper's IntelliSense. In contrast, the native VS IntelliSense does show the documentation for the elements (cf. 2nd picture).

I examined this further. It seems to be caused by my user account's UI language which is set to German. If I set it to English I get the documentation. Also note that my VS 2008 (SP1) installation is entirely English, MSDN library as well. Is there a way to get the (english) documentation in VS without having to change the UI language of my user account?

Thanks in advance

Hello Andreas
     Could you please check if this is also the case for Quick Documentation (ReSharper > Code > Quick Documentation)? Thank you!

Hello Andrey,

i guess it doesn't work either according to the screenshot attached.
Maybe I try to install the German MSDN library to check whether it will work afterwards. Does the installation of the library affect the IntelliSense in VS?

Regards,
Andreas

ReSharper uses the XmlDoc files for the quick documentation, which has little
to do to the MSDN library.

They're usually either shipped along with the DLLs (as .xml companion files),
which is the case with the .NET Framework core libraries, or installed separately
with SDK, as Visual Studio SDK would do.

What's the locale of the .NET Framework / Visual Studio installation? Is
it not English?

.NET Framework's locale is as initially shipped with Windows 7 (I installed the English version, afterwards I installed the German MUI).
Visual Studio's locale is English.
Installed Windows SDK is English as well.

As I figured out, the following path is the place where XmlDoc is stored (or at least some of them):
%windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\en
There are in fact documentation files located in there.

I also have a subfolder named "de" in the v2.0.50727-folder. No xml-files are located there (just some *.resources.dll-files).

Does ReSharper account for the system's or VisualStudio's locale?

Thanks for support.

Kind regards,
Andreas
