Stop Connecting To TFS Automatically On Visual Studio Startup

I often visit customers and work outside the office, means I work disconnected for a while.

It’s laborious when I open VS (2005 or 2008) and waiting for VS to connect automatically to TFS.

Colin Beales has an excellent tip that explains how to stop Visual Studio from automatically connecting to a TFS server when it starts up.

  • Backup your registry
  • Navigate to Team Foundation key:
    • For VS 2005 navigate to: HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftVisualStudio8.0TeamFoundation
    • For VS 2008 navigate to: HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftVisualStudio9.0TeamFoundation
  • Add a registry key “AutoLoadServer” (type DWORD)
  • Setting the value to be 0 (Do not connect automatically or 1 to connect automatically).
