If you are still using Visual Studio 2012 and are looking for a way to have intellisense for your views made for razor 3, if you want to add a new view and a new controller with the proper menu entries in visual studio you probably noticed that with things don’t work as they should.
Simply install the following 2 components:
- ASP.NET and Web Tools 2013.1 for Visual Studio 2012 (link to direct download)
- Entity Framework 6 Tools for Visual Studio 2012
In case the links don’t work, check the original articles where I’ve found all the necessary information (thanks to them):
