This is what it looks like but it works perfectly.

When I reference the System.Windows.Forms namespace, intellisense doesn't acknowledge the ".Forms" part, and it turns red when I finish typing it manually. Everything compiles just fine but it is just annoying because now half of my code is red and it gets a bit confusing even though it is in correct syntax and everything works when I run it. 

P.S. - I did add the System.Windows.Forms namespace as a reference in the reference folder.

Did you enable the experimental msbuild engine?
Comment 2 rayshard.t123 2013-08-17 07:52:54 UTC
Nope, should I?
Comment 3 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2013-08-17 12:24:49 UTC
Nope, just checking.
Comment 4 Mike Krüger 2013-08-17 12:58:23 UTC
This happens when the project system can't look up the references for some reason.

Can you please try to reproduce the issue and attach the XS log file? (you can get it from the Help-> Open Log Directory menu option)
