  • Try building the application.  If that does not help you might have to do a repair on visual studio 2012

  • Same problem here; After installing the WP8-SDK I get the same message in the designer-window

    Edit: Building (and deploying) works - problem exists only in the designer

  • I also have this issue on VS2012 Pro from my MSDN subscription. I tried repairing my install but no luck. I don't get intellisense with my XAML editor either. Very annoying.

    Microsoft, please help.
