Hi,

I am the administrator for a Team project in TFS.

One of the team members left the company with a file checked-out in his name.

There is a lock also associated with the checkout.

How do i force check-in that file

Regards,

Aravind Sekar

You can unlock his changes using tf.exe (usually located in c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE)

tf lock $/ProjectPath /lock:none /workspace:workspacename /serverTongue TiederverName

or use Team Foundation Sidekicks application

You may also want to delete his workspace, which will also delete the lock.

tf workspace /delete HisWorkspace;domain\his_user_name /s:http://yourserver:8080

You might want to take a look at http://www.woodwardweb.com/vsts/000143.html where I wrote a summary on what to do - but the previous answers are all correct.

Good luck,
