VS2013 Find in Files not showing any files / search results

Recently, VS2013 started omitting the file names in the search results when I did a “Find in Files”

The output was similar to:

Find all “Phone”, Subfolders, Find Results 1, Entire Solution, “*.*”
… where are my file names?? …
Matching lines: 637    Matching files: 84    Total files searched: 821

The following post fixed it:

The Default value in this registry entry was not there (it was just an empty string).

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{73B7DC00-F498-4ABD-AB79-D07AFD52F395}\InProcServer32]
@=”C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Common Files\\microsoft shared\\MSEnv\\TextMgrP.dll
“ThreadingModel”=”Both”

 

Thanks interwebs!

  1. Thanks! This fixed me. I think I wound up in this state after I installed an old dexplore package (so I could read HxS files with H2Viewer).
