You may find the status of a file in Visual Studio is "Checked out exclusively by someone else or in another place" as shown in the following figure:
- The file was checked out by another user.
- The file was checked out by you to a different location from the current solution folder.
You can find the checkout status of the file by clicking the file, go to menu
File -> Source Control -> SourceAnywhere Properties -> Check Out Status tab.
- If the file was checked out by another user, you can only work on the file after the user released the lock on the file.
- If the file was checkout out to a different place by yourself, you can log in SourceAnywhere GUI Client and perform Check In/Undo Check Out there. And then you can continue working in Visual Studio IDE Client. You may want to update the working folder of the project in SourceAnywhere Client to the solution folder.
