newbieweb,

Not exactly sure what you mean by "stack trace tool" - have you lost one of the dockable views in the ide? If so then maybe try going to View menu item then selecting one of the windows there (?Options).

If you haven't customised the ide too much then you may want to try the following:

Shut down all instances of Visual Studio 2005.
Click Start, the choose Run....
Type devenv.exe /resetuserdata

Note that this will take a couple of minutes to run and will reset the development environment to what it was when first installed. Also note that you will lose all your environment settings and customizations so use only if you don't mind losing those.

I can't take the chance of reseting my environment, but I remember a tool (a window) which allowed me to see, at a breakpoint for example, what functions were called prior to the function where the program is paused.

This was a useful way for me to understand the program flow at that point.

Maybe my name "stack trace tool" threw you.  But if you think about it you'll know what I'm talking about.

thanks,
