The Path is Already Mapped in Workspace

TFS 2010 Mapping Issues.

I've lately reinstalled my TFS 2010 and after do so, I encountered an extremely annoying error:
"The path is already mapped in workspace".

I searched for almost everywhere, I tried changing Visual studio files and nothing.
It was only then I found out where was the problem - in my Team Foundation Cache.

After realizing that - the rest was fairly easy.
Simply go to this folder: C:\Users\{UserName}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Team Foundation\3.0\Cache and delete all that's in the folder.

This was a rather quick solution to a problem that was keeping my mind busy :)

Hope it helped,

  4. Awesome! I'd been searching through many posts online addressing this error message and hadn't gotten anywhere until finding this. Since it's so simple, I'm surprised this information more readily available on MSDN. Oh wait, I forgot MSDN sucks.

  14. Does this command required to run on TFS server only?

    ReplyDelete
  15. You should follow the steps on the machine that has the error, it can be your build machine or your development machine.

    The error occurs because it has a conflict of where to do the GL (Get latest) and Check in from and to.

    If you still can't figure it out, you can email me via the Contact form. I can then guide you better, or even conduct a Team Viewer session to help you with this issue.
