Intellisense / Razor issue in CMS 7.1


Hi all.

I've got a problem where Intellisense is not working in any of our CMS (Razor) views. Intellisense does work in any other part of the project. This lead me to think that it was web.config in the Views folder, but even loading up a new project and copying that web.config file in the problem persists. 

I noticed a similar problem here:, but the fix described in that thread did not work (targetframework, new web.config).

The problem is definitely Episerver-related, though as any new projects or other existing projects have no issue with Razor and Intellisense. Also, my co-workers all have the same issue (this would make sense as we all pull the files from the same repo). I've tried applying the Microsoft ASP.NET Web pack patch (updates to Razor and ASP.NET that supposedly fixed issues with Razor). Now I'm stumped and am wondering if anyone else out there has experienced and been able to correct this issue.

I'm convinced it has to be something minor we're just overlooking (perhaps in web.config). Any input/help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time.
