Hi people I am using Visual Studio 2003 .NET and my output window has dissapeared I I have no idea how to get it back. I have tried going to view->other windows->output and also hit CTRL+ALT+O but, in both cases, nothing happens. I don't know what I've done to disable this but I'm getting no compliation output so have no idea what errors I have in my code. Can anyone help?

Try replacing your main method implementation with something trivial, like Console.WriteLine("Hello world!");. Does anything happen? Also, double-check to see that the Output window hasn't been docked to one of the sides of the window.

Everything looks okay docking wise, although not 100% certain what to look for?

No joy when replacing main() either????

Also looked in Tools->Options->Environment->Projectsand Solutions and all the relevant message windows tick boxes are ticked.

What can it be?

Just to be clear, does nothing happen when you compile and run your trivialized program? No windows pop up, no "Building..." text in your display?

He's not talking about the console window, he's talking about the Visual Studio output pane, where, among other things, build output appears.

Try renaming the %APPDATA%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0\1033\CmdUI.prf file and restarting VS. It might help.
