Deleting a Team Project from Team Foundation Server 2005/2008/2010

Deleting a team project from team foundation server is bit tricky. As there is no user interface available to do it in TFS, you have to use command line with a TfsDeleteProject.exe utility that ships with TFS 2005/2008/2010 to active this. Look complicated but very easy to do :)

You can do this from any computer in the network that has a access to team foundation server .

open Visual studio command prompt or windows command processor (cmd.exe)
and cd to the following path

In 32 Bit windows operating system

%program files%\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE (2008/2010)
%program files%\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE (2005)

In 64 Bit windows operating system

%Program Files (x86)%\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE (2008/2010)
%Program Files (x86)%\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE (2005)

then execute the following command

tfsdeleteproject /q /force /server: " "

Keep in mind: Your team foundation server User must have an Administrator rights to execute the above command successfully.
