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

This error is a bug in Microsoft Visual Studio which occurs very often when “Find in files” utility is used to find some token in a file or directory which has been specified in the Look in list of the Find in files dialog box.

Visual Studio will just dump this message: “No files were found to look in. Find was stopped”, and will not even try searching in the files.

To correct this error :

1. Either, Get your Visual Studio in focus and press any of the key combination :
  1. CTRL + BREAK
  2. CTRL + SCROLL LOCK
  3. ALT + BREAK
Note : Not sure what does this key combination does but it works.

2. Or, Delete this Registry key from Windows Registry using Regedit utility :
MyComputer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0\Find
and restart your Visual Studio.
