Automatic Checkout not Getting Latest Version Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    We're having a problem with automatic checkouts using the Beta3 TFS with VSTS 2005.

    When we edit code, the call is made to automatically check out the code from TFS.  Unfortunately, the behavior we are encountering seems to indicate that the call to TFS isn't performing a Get Latest Version before checking out the code locally.  This results in us getting "Invalid Handle" errors on check-in and having to manually step through the auto-merge tool to get things back in sync.

    Is there a setting somewhere that will force a get latest from the TFS source control on auto-checkout? 

    Let me know if you can help!

    Best Regards,

  • Not in v1, sorry.  Please search this forum, it's been discussed in detail several times.  (The "invalid handle" error is a bug, of course, but it's been fixed).
