TFS – “The path … is already mapped in workspace …”

After installing some power too, my VS 2010 now always run under another admin account of me. So my previous mapping of the projects are lost and I can’t check out files to the original local path. The above error occurs if I try to remap the project to the same location. After some googling these tips helps:

In VS command line, use

  • c:\>tf workspaces /owner:*  (to show all workspace)
  • c:\>tf workspace /delete COMPUTER_NAME;USER_NAME (to remove the workspace)
  • c:\>tf workspace COMPUTER;USERNAME (this will open a GUI dialog to edit the workspace. The BEST option!)

I change my workspace to public so that any user can work on it (in case my VS switches back to my own account).
