Visual Studio 2010 doesn’t search more than a few files and bails with the message Find was stopped in progress. This was driving me nuts, so I went to the web for an answer.
It turns out the way to solve this issue is to simply hit CTRL+BREAK a few times in the find window.
How do you fix the "Find was stopped in progress" issue in VS 2010? CTRL+BREAK
Looks like VS gets into a state that needs you to explicitly break it out of.
