Your display might be small so initially Messages window is out off the visible screen.

Find this file: "c:\Documents and Settings\YourWinLoginName\Application Data\lazarus32\environmentoptions.xml" and this section:

- <MessagesView>
<WindowPlacement Value="RestoreWindowGeometry" />
<CustomPosition Left="348" Top="947" Width="928" Height="45" />
<WindowState Value="Normal" />
<Visible Value="True" />
<Caption Value="Messages" />
</MessagesView>

Now replace old line inside this section with this:

<CustomPosition Left="100" Top="100" Width="500" Height="45" />

This should make messages window visible.

There is another way to solve this problem, by moving window only with keyboard commands. Click on Lazarus menu View/Messages to show that invisible window, and then press ALT+SPACE together, DOWN ARROW once, ENTER once and UP ARROW many times until you see messages window.
