Missing Toolbox


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?

try right clicking > reset toolbox.. ?
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.
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.

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.
