Unable to check out file "<file>" because it is already checked out.

This message has the following cause and solution:

  • You tried to check out a file that is already checked out by another user.

Files of this type can be checked out to only one user at a time. You can wait for the other user to check it in, or you can ask your Visual SourceSafe administrator to undo the user's checkout (which will overwrite the user's changes.)
