Have you ever experienced any of the following annoying messages when using Windows:

  • Cannot delete file: Access is denied.
  • There has been a sharing violation.
  • The source or destination file may be in use.

Even though I’m a Microsoft fan, I like to know what’s happening on the other side of the spectrum.

Stop Auto-Resolving Tasks in TFS #VisualStudio

Microsoft-Visual-Studio-icon

When checking-in pending updates to tasks in TFS, Team Explorer usually sets the task as ‘Resolve’ by default. But sometimes you just need to check in part of the updates, and set the update as ‘Associate’. To stop Team Explorer from auto-resolving your task on check-in, you need to follow the next steps:

For Visual Studio 2013

  • Go to: Start -› RegEdit
  • Find Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\12.0\TeamFoundation\SourceControl\Behavior]
  • Update Value: “ResolveAsDefaultCheckinAction”=”False”

For Visual Studio 2015

  • Go to: Visual Studio -› Tools -› Options -› Source Control

Now let’s continue those tasks!
