Hi, I installed the latest Wing pro on Windows, everything works smoothly, however auto-completion isn't functioning. On Linux the latest Wing pro ( has no this problem. I tried different preference settings (enable turbo mode, always show completer, clean up analysis cache ...) but no help. I also tried different python interpreters but the problem remains. Is there any suggestion? By the way in the PC I installed Wing Personal before then I bought a copy of Wing pro, is it related?

I'm pretty sure this is a bug introduced in version where we try to avoid displaying the auto-completer during Chinese input method, but it ended up disabling in more cases than it should. We're working on a solution. A workaround would be to revert the update from Wing's About box so you're back at

You are awesome! After switching to the problem disappeared. I also confirmed that after changing windows display language from Chinese to English, even with latest the auto-completer still functioning. It is related to current display language not input method language.
