I was just checking in a lot of files to Vault. I thought it was dead so I killed Visual Studio 2005 in Task Manager. OK, from then on it complains that some files are exclusively checked out by a user so I cannot check them in until he checks in. And the serious problem comes, that user is me. Oh, who will save me???
I believe it is a Vault bug but because I am still using the 3.5 old version, so I cannot hope this bug fixed today or in the future (SourceGear is selling 4.1 right now). Therefor I am forced to find out how to resolve it myself.
In fact, today is my lucky day that when I launch the Vault Client, a workaround is so obvious. I UNDO all checkouts but LEAVE my working files there. Then I launch Visual Studio 2005 again, and suddenly see everything is fine. Why not buy some lottery tickets tonight?
I have to confess that I never knew checking in hundreds of files would take such a long time. But I am sure next time I won’t kill Visual Studio.
