Locked files in the pending changes

Mar 6, 2009 at 3:42 PM
Hi,

Could you add a warning or refuse to queue a buddy build that would contain locked files in the pending changes, as they cannot be restored by the build agent.
Note that locked files occur as soon as you add a binary file to TFS (image, dll...)

Thanks,

This is a very good suggestion.
I was planning on adding something similar that will validate that multiple shelvesets do not have overlapping files that can cause the unshelving to fail. What you mention is another unshelve-breaking scenario that can also be verified on the client before queuing the build. I am going to add a work item for tracking this and hopefully get that in soon.
Thanks for the great suggestion!
