I've been using VS 2002 for awhile and now I installed VS 2005 Pro. I went back to using VS 2002 because there are things I can't resolve with 2005. 1) I can't find the Configuration Manager where it used to be a right click on the Solution Explorer. The SE now just shows the project where it used to show the project within the solution. I found a Configuration Manager but can't find how to switch between Debug & Release. 2) The Toolbox is empty and I am told to drag things into there, but from where?

Maybe there is a place where I can find where things have been moved, but I don't know it.

Perhaps someone can help.
Thank you.

Never mind this problem, I found the solutions. Thanks to all who thought about it. 1) Configuration Manager - in Tools + Options - 2 Check Boxes "Show Advanced Build Options" & "Always Show Solution". Checked these & I see what I always see in VS 2002. 2) Empty Toolbox - I was looking for these when a form was not in the IDE. As soon as I had a form in the IDE, the Toolbox items showed-up. Oooops.
