ASP.NET (C#) Question

"The name 'HTML' does not exist in the current context" in MVC 3 Views

I´m starting to use "MVC 3" but I´m facing some little problems. In my Views, when I code something like this:

@if(Request.IsAuthenticated) {
<text>Welcome <b>@Context.User.Identity.Name</b>!
[ @Html.ActionLink("Log Off", "LogOff", "Account") ]</text>
else {
@:[ @Html.ActionLink("Log On", "LogOn", "Account") ]

The objects like @Request and @Html is indicating an error:
The name 'HTML' does not exist in the current context

The same occurs with @Context, @ViewBag, @Layout, @Url and others.



But the code is correctly compiled with no errors. The problem is that I cannot use the Intellisense with theses objects in the Views. Is it normal? (I don´t think so). What could be happening?

I have reinstalled the MVC 3 framework but the same still occurs.

Note: this is a new project from scratch, not a MVC 2 migration. This occurs both with Razor engine and ASPX.

This is the Web.Config in the Views folder:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<sectionGroup name="system.web.webPages.razor" type="System.Web.WebPages.Razor.Configuration.RazorWebSectionGroup, System.Web.WebPages.Razor, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35">
<section name="host" type="System.Web.WebPages.Razor.Configuration.HostSection, System.Web.WebPages.Razor, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35" requirePermission="false" />
<section name="pages" type="System.Web.WebPages.Razor.Configuration.RazorPagesSection, System.Web.WebPages.Razor, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35" requirePermission="false" />

<host factoryType="System.Web.Mvc.MvcWebRazorHostFactory, System.Web.Mvc, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35" />
<pages pageBaseType="System.Web.Mvc.WebViewPage">
<add namespace="System.Web.Mvc" />
<add namespace="System.Web.Mvc.Ajax" />
<add namespace="System.Web.Mvc.Html" />
<add namespace="System.Web.Routing" />

<add key="webpages:Enabled" value="false" />

<add path="*" verb="*" type="System.Web.HttpNotFoundHandler"/>

Enabling request validation in view pages would cause validation to occur
after the input has already been processed by the controller. By default
MVC performs request validation before a controller processes the input.
To change this behavior apply the ValidateInputAttribute to a
controller or action.

<validation validateIntegratedModeConfiguration="false" />

<remove name="BlockViewHandler"/>
<add name="BlockViewHandler" path="*" verb="*" preCondition="integratedMode" type="System.Web.HttpNotFoundHandler" />

I have solved this issue with the old, good, wise Microsoft default solution: reinstall all the things again.

Uninstall and Reinstall the Visual Studio 2010 and MVC 3 Framework.
