Prevent automatic checkout RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I start editing one of my source files and there is a newer version of the file on the server it automatically checks out the file before I start changing it.  Super annoying.  Any way of preventing this?  I only want my local source files updated when I do a checkout of latest.

  • Look in the options of Visual Studio (Tools -> Options -> Source Control -> Environment).

    You can set:
    Editing to Do Nothing
    Saving to Save As
    Check the "Allow checked-in items to be edited"
