XXX.vcxproj, XXX.vcxproj.filters have been automatically checked out for editing.


  • Hi,

    The last 2 days I started having the following issue. when I open my solution my project files are automatically check out. When I do compare with TFS source branch there is no any changes.

    Try to undo the check out, the are automatically checked out again.

    When I unload the project I could undo the check out. Then I can load the project and the project files are not check out.

    But when I close and open the solution they are (the project files) are check out again!!!

    Please suggest solution!!! We are working in team and it is very annoying for everyone of us.

  • Found a solution... very weird one!!!

    Check-out your solution file from source control, then open the solution file in a text editor, like Notepad. Find a section named "GlobalSection(ExtensibilityGlobals)" Delete the entire section:

    GlobalSection(ExtensibilityGlobals) = postSolution
      MyGlobalProperty = AnyValue

    Save the solution file in the text editor, check in the solution, close then re-opened it to check if that works for you.
