Hey hardcore programmers,

If you want to have CodeLens (yeah you know this little useful tool which gives you directly a link to where this code is referenced), all you need to do is install SSDT. And if you don’t need SSDT, you can just uninstall it afterwards, and CodeLens will remain.

Uninstall SSDT if you don’t need it, then restart Visual Studio.

Enjoy!  🙂
