Missing Toolbox

Experts,

I'm rebuildling my computer and have just re-installed Visual Studio.NET.  When I go under "View/Toolbox", I get no tools and this message:

"There are no usable controls in this group.  Drag an item onto this text to add it to the toolbox."

What am I missing?

Okay, there's nothing actually wrong then.  THe toolbox will display controls applicable to whatever window / page type you're on.  If it's not a designer, it wont' show anything.

Forgive if this sounds basic, but you are on a "designable" page, as in Designer view?  The toolbox will show blank if you're just on a code page or a blank page...

It's a console app, and I was attempting to display the toolbox from within the console file.  There's not real "page" in this app.

Create a new WinForm application, say WindowsApplication1, and when you're seeing the Form1 on the screen check the toolbox. I assume you should be able to see the controls here.
