Lost my "Error List" window - 09-04-2007 , 05:01 PM
Something has happened with my copy of Visual Studio 2005.
When I click on View/Error List (to try to see the "Error List"
window) I don't see any error list window. After clicking View/Error
List there is no visible active window.
If I make Visual Studio go to full screen, and then click on View/
Error List, I do get a visible Error List window, but no matter where
I place it, as soon as I disable View/Full Screen the error list
I've tried doing an Alt/Space when the Error list is presumably
active, and then pressing 'M' for move, but I haven't been able to
make it visible by that means.

Go to Tools | Macros | Record a Temporary Macro and do something, anything.
Then open the macro editor and paste in this code (overwriting whatever
action you recorded):
With DTE.Windows.Item(EnvDTE80.WindowKinds.vsWindowKind ErrorList)
.IsFloating = True
.Visible = True
.Left = 5
.Top = 5
Then run the temporary macro. Note that this will make the window a floating
window, and you'll have to right-click the title bar and make it dockable
again. I couldn't figure out how to do that in the few minutes I spent on

I had the same problem, but sadly Jeffs macro didn't work for me (when it comes to ".IsFloating = True" I get an error message with a COM component having a HRESULT E_FAIL.
For me worked the following:
Go to Window|Reset Window Layout.
After that any changes of your window layout are lost, but you can acces the Error List via menue or shortcut.
