Problem:

Why can I not "Force Check Out" a previous file revision with StarTeam Eclipse Client?

Resolution:


  • Product Name: StarTeam Eclipse
  • Product Version: 2006
  • Product Component: Client
  • Platform/OS Version: n/a

The newer versions of the StarTeam Eclipse Client (STEC) have removed the "Force Check Out" option. This has been replaced with a more flexible check-out option "Replace with ..."

Instead of using the "Force Check Out" option under the "TEAM | FORCE CHECK OUT" context menu, you should use the "REPLACE WITH | REVISION" context menu.

This allows you to select the revision of the file you wish "force check out"
