This is definitely in the category "I-would-believe-it-if-I-would-see-it-with-my-own-eyes".

Coworker tried to "search in files" in Visual Studio 2005 and he got zero results. Even when he searched for simple "a" character, he still got nothing. Then we noticed the message in results pane:

No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress.

He googled it and fairly quickly found a solution on Franny's Adobe blog. 

Pressing Ctrl + Scroll Lock actually helped! It's important to mention the above solution and error was spotted in Visual Studio 2003 but coworker had same thing in 2005.

It looks like somehow "Break" command which is Ctrl + C or Ctrl + Pause got stuck. But that has nothing to do with "Scroll Lock". Go figure. Weird, weird, weird... How the hell would anyone solve this without internet?!? Thank you, Tim, thank you!

Sure enough! Argh.. it was driving me nuts.

Press Ctrl + c and ctrl + pause .. this may solve your problem.

What the hell was that??

What does Ctl + C and Ctl + Pause do??

It did work.. but is there an explanation for this?

I have not freakin' idea. :) I just know it works.

Yep, I have this bug on VS 2005.

Your post helped me to solve it.

You MUST be in with the prompter in a SOURCE (CPP or h) for this to work. But it works :)

I tried pressing Ctrl+Scroll Lock as well as Ctrl + C or Ctrl + Pause but still it is not working...can anyone suggest me an alternative idea...I have even tried formatting my computer and reinstalling VS 2005 but I still get the same error.

# re: Strangest error: No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress. 1/21/2008 8:27 AM Hardik
Heeeyyyy..........it worked but, can anybody tell me how the first person came to know about the solution.....???? Please.

cheers for this info, probably saved MS from a terrible curse.

Worked! I'm baffled as to what the heck this does exactly, or what caused the problem in the first place, but I am glad to have it fixed!

Not working.. Does anybody familiar with a different bizzare combination that might solve this problem? (on MSVisual2003)

# re: Strangest error: No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress. 6/16/2008 10:55 AM Oren
I got it in VS 2008...

Yepp! Weirdest problem I've seen. And even weirder: Ctrl ScrollLock solved it!

# re: Strangest error: No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress. 6/28/2008 2:22 AM Vlad
I've got my new laptop today from the operations with VS 2005 and VS 2008 installed. I've got this issue in both VSs. Who the hell can freacking believe that? Thank you, guys, for the solution.

# re: Strangest error: No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress. 7/31/2008 4:26 PM Soteris
In VS2008 try Alt+Break

# re: Strangest error: No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress. 8/6/2008 11:00 PM Mike Smith
Wahoo! Thanks guys! I had to use the CNTRL-Break one to get it to work. I think that's the one that did it since I kept trying the others to no avail and then mashed on all of them (with the addition of CTRL-Break) to get it to work.

Thanks!

# re: Strangest error: No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress. 8/29/2008 5:58 AM Grrrrrrr!
In VS2005 Alt+Break was required (this time) after 5 minutes of trying Ctrl+(Everything). Last time is was Ctrl+Break, Grrrrr drives me nuts!
Very disappointed to hear it still exists in VS2008. Surely this is some kind of sick joke.

Thank you! Ctrl + Scroll Lock worked for me in VS2005.

Alt+Break was the only one that worked for me in VS2005

Hi, Thanks for the solution...
Alt+Break worked here...!!!

# re: Strangest error: No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress. 11/19/2008 1:53 PM Doug
This works with VS2008 also. I have no idea why. I even shut down VS2008 and upon startup it gave same error. When I pressed Ctrl-C and then Ctrl-Pause/Break it fixed it!

I found this site on a google search of "No files were found to look in."

Happened same to me, ctrl+scroll lock fixed it.... thanks very much.... could it be becuase the machine was on for many days to gether? Not that has to do anything with VS2005, but if we use VS2005, end of the day, dont shutdown but just lock, and repeat the same for few days, could that be it?

# re: Strangest error: No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress. 2/19/2009 7:09 PM Frank Steve Udall
alt-break worked for min VS2005!

# re: Strangest error: No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress. 2/24/2009 12:44 PM SureshG
Ctrl+ScrollLock worked fine with my VS 2005.

Thank you.. :)

Thanks!!! Ctrl+Scroll Lock worked for me in VS2003

# re: Strangest error: No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress. 3/16/2009 8:38 PM Marvin
CTRL+ Scroll Lock worked for VS 2008.

Thanks. This was driving me crazy

# re: Strangest error: No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress. 3/19/2009 2:42 AM Prashant Yesodharan
The following would do the trick:

1) Close all instances of the Visual Studio IDE

2) Start -> Run -> RegEdit -> Delete the registry entry MyComputer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0\Find

Open Visual Studio and try find again.

# re: Strangest error: No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress. 3/23/2009 3:17 PM sirrocco
Yeap, Solved it for me too ... thanks :)

# re: Strangest error: No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress. 4/8/2009 9:05 PM AK
Yeap, it occurs in VS2005.
This was driving me nuts. I thought I was too sleepy or something. Dont know if which one of Ctrl + C or Ctrl+break really worked.

Can I bang my keyboard on someones head in VS dev team's for having wasted half a day.

Hi, My problem got solved as I pressed "Ctrl+ Scroll Lock" in VS 2005. Thanks to the blog owner and Hats Off to the solution provider.

# re: Strangest error: No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress. 5/8/2009 9:23 PM Dino
Thank you!! Alt+Break while the focus was in the Find Results section worked (vs2008).

http://blogs.msdn.com/oldnewthing/archive/2008/02/11/7596539.aspx

seems ctrl-scroll lock and ctrl-break are the same and they both cancel dialog boxes which seems weird the solution is to close a dialog box

btw ctrl-scroll lock worked for me too, VS 2005

Thanks Ctrl+Scroll Lock worked for me in VS2008. Strange!

# What a brilliantly ridiculous bug and solution! 7/19/2009 1:53 PM Josh
Thank you!!! That was driving me nuts. I hardly even believed that pressing Ctrl+Scroll Lock would actually work! I felt stupid even trying it.

There was no "ding!", or message box or anything indicating it had changed or fixed it in any way - this non-believer was proved somewhat wrong.

Ridiculous, almost funny, but bloody brilliant I found this blog. Thank you!!!

# re: Strangest error: No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress. 7/27/2009 10:09 PM Nick Waanders
I'm getting this non stop. It seems important to have a source file open and the focus on that source file, and then pressing Ctrl-ScrLk.
I've also had times where this didn't work, and I had to restart the machine. I can't believe this problem hasn't been found/hilighted/fixed yet by MS. It's been in there since 2003!

# re: Strangest error: No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress. 7/28/2009 10:14 PM Josue Gomes
I got this from time to time. Usually Ctrl+ScrollLock does the job. But today it doesn't. I tried Alt+ScrollLock and it worked fine.

# re: Strangest error: No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress. 8/2/2009 7:34 PM Balog Pal
Just encountered the same thing in VS2008SP1. Persistent feature. :-( Fortunately fiddling with scrollock still cures it and google finds the solutions by just entering the message text.

# re: Strangest error: No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress. 8/20/2009 3:56 PM gigi

Nothin was working for me (VS2005), even registry trick, except for Alt+Break while the focus was in the Find Results section worked (vs2008). Thank you!!

Still broken in VS 2010. The Scr Lock solution does not seem to work nor does the Pause/break. Search in files does work for Projects and Solutions but not for any searches on disk.

# re: Strangest error: No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress. 9/23/2009 3:14 PM andek

VS2005: I found the problem is caused by pressing ctrl+break during a build (to cancel it). ctrl+scroll lock cleared the problem.

Just moved my PC upstairs when it started happening. Reading this page pointed me to the Pause/Break key which I noticed was stuck down - cheap keyboard! Apart from vc2008 find in files breaking, everything else has worked as normal so far.

Strange, had the same thing in VS2008 today,
wildly pressing many keys incl. Pause/ScrollLock/Ctrl... did not help, finally F5 (Run) and then Ctrl+Break did the trick (German keyboard layout)

# re: Strangest error: No files were found to look in. Find was stopped in progress. 9/29/2010 1:47 PM Mike Gledhill
September 2010.

Three years after this thread was started, and it's still useful.

Using the latest service pack of VS2008, I had exactly the same issue myself. Hitting CTRL+Break (on my QWERTZ German keyboard) fixed it beautifully.

Bug ? Bug ?
Did we say "Bug" ?

Naaaah....
Wake up Microsoft.

Thanks, this worked for me. I might have found when this happens, at least for me. It will occur after I attached to a process to debug it, from within a Visual Studio instance with the solution of the said process opened. If you start your application from the solution, no problems. If you attach to it, boum!

What the ****** have Microsoft done this time, this just happened to me, and the fix worked, but I've been doing these searches on this machine with this software for MONTHS

The defects introduced just get weirder and weirder. What muppet put this code in? Can someone at Microsoft please comment?

Thanks for sharing! Alt+Break worked for me in VS2008, Ctrl+Scroll lock didn't.

Just type CTRL+Shift+F, then under 'Find Options' heading, change the file type(i.e. 'Look at these file types') and set it to either '' or '*.*'.

Hey MS, still happening in VS2010. Could be something to do with hitting Ctrl-Break to stop a build, as I had done this just before it started happening.
