Solution File Checked out Automatically

Post by stevepro » Tue Mar 04, 2008 1:21 pm

Just upgraded to 4.1. and Upgraded solution to Enhanced. Every time a developer opens the Solution it is exclusively checked out by that developer and all other developers have to dismiss multiple Dialogs that the solution is already checked out.

Request Exclusive Locks are Off.

This is very annoying as the Solution file rarely needs changing.

When the solution file is checked out, does a Show Differences reveal any changes?

Also note that if you don't want exclusive locks on solution files, you'd also need to add sln to the mergeable file types list. More on that here.
